Stats of meaning and crazy observations from Baylor's win over ULM.
Baylor 47, ULM 42: Post-Game | Thoughts | Recap | Box Score | Highlights | Game Notes | Quotes
When FootballOutsiders' statistics update for this week, I'll do a more comprehensive breakdown of this past game from the normal standpoint of efficiency. For today, these are just stats that I found interesting from Friday night's game. Comprehensive season stats are below the jump.
0 -- Baylor points in the first quarter, the first time Baylor has been held scoreless in the first since last year's Kansas game.
0 -- Sacks given up by Baylor's offensive line.
1 -- Carry for Lache Seastrunk. We did not #FreeLache. He had 0 yards on that carry.
2.9 -- YPC for Jarred Salubi. He alone had 14 carries up the middle for 34 total yards, an average of 2.43 YPC. He had three carries for -3 yards and five for 1 or 0.
3 -- Turnovers forced by Baylor's defense in the second half.
3 -- Field goals attempted and missed by ULM.
4 -- Tackles for loss against ULM included 2 sacks by Terrance Lloyd and Chris McAllister. 1 is listed as a TFL but actually "lost" them 0 yards.
4 -- Attempted conversions on 4th down. We were successful all 4 times.
6.2 -- Average gain by Baylor per offensive play. Decent, right? ULM gained 6.6.
9 -- Wins in a row, the nation's second-longest winning streak and the longest for Baylor since 1936-1937. That was 76 years ago.
13 -- Touchbacks from Aaron Jones this season. He had 5 in this game. Big reason why Baylor isn't consistently losing the field position battle this season as opposed to last. Outside of the first interception, every ULM possession began inside their 30 yard line, with the last 10 beginning at or inside the 25. ULM didn't return a single kick past their 25.
13.6 -- Yards per completion for Baylor's offense.
40 -- Tackles between Bryce Hager (15), Eddie Lackey (14), and Ahmad Dixon (11).
41 -- Plays Baylor ran on first down. 20 of which were running plays. 17 of those running plays went up the middle. 2 to the left, and 1 to the right. That includes the TD run by Norwood (to the left) that wasn't planned.
71 -- Total rushing yards Baylor gained on first down. Terrance Ganaway isn't walking through that door.
191 -- Yards of offense for ULM in the fourth quarter, including 90 on ULM's last scoring drive where Baylor basically gave up.
262 -- Yards rushing allowed by our defense. 6.2 yards per carry.
351 -- Passing Yards for Nick Florence. A big part of his 165.9 passer rating.
Those are Tevin Reese's yards because they're not included in the team totals for whatever reason.
