Regular Season Baylor Football Stats, Records

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

It's been 3 weeks since we last looked Baylor's quest to plant itself in the record books.

I've had a lot of requests for these numbers over the past few weeks, so here we are.  I hate to break it to you, but you might not like what you're going to find...

Please note: I can't explain the 3 yard discrepancy between Baylor's official stats and this chart.  Just saying that now.  Also, sorry it doesn't have rushing TDs listed by game.  I can't explain that.

Points: After scoring 70 points in three of our first four and four of our first six games, the Baylor offense fell back to Earth slightly in the second half of Big 12 play.  Still, the Bears scored 639 points in 12 games to average 53.25 points per game. That's the highest in the country by a quarter of a point over Florida State.  Let's break it down a bit...

3 Non-Conference Games: 209 points / 3 games = 69.67 points per game.
First 6 Games (including 3 in Big 12): 388 / 6 games = 64.67 points per game
Final 6 Games (all Big 12): 251 / 6 games = 41.83 points per game
Big 12 Play (9 games): 430 / 9 games = 47.78 points per game

Yards: Baylor put up an astounding 7494 yards in 12 games for an average of 624.5 yards per game.

3 Non-Conference Games: 2254 yards / 3 games = 751 yards per game.
First 6 Games (including 3 in Big 12): 4283 / 6 games = 713.83 yards per game
Final 6 Games (all Big 12): 3211 / 6 games = 535.17 yards per game
Big 12 Play (9 games): 5240 / 9 games = 582.22 yards per game.

So that's how it works out.  By yards per play, our best game was obviously ULM (an astounding 10.1) and our worst definitely TCU (4.1).

Below, the first number shows our current average in a given statistic. The next (perhaps 2) shows what we need to average over the next 6 games to break the record, which should be specified.

Baylor Points Per Game: 53.25
Needed for Total Points Record (OU 2008): 78 (ppg)
Needed for Points Per Game Record (Army 1944): 90 (ppg)

After scoring just 17 points against OSU and 71 between TCU and Texas, we've fallen off a record-setting pace by quite a bit.  Still, with 639 points in 12 games this year, we passed last year's total points (578 in 13 games) by 61 and 2011's total (589 in 13 games) by 50.  After giving up 484 points in each of the last two years (weird!), we have, to date, given up just 254.  As long as we don't give up 231 points to UCF, we'll improve on last year's total!

The records for points in a season, as always, straight from the NCAA:

MOST POINTS SCORED
-- (9 games) 504-Army, 1944 
-- (10 games) 466-Oklahoma, 1956 
-- (11 games) 589-Houston, 1989 
-- (12 games) 624-Nebraska, 1983 
-- (13 games) 652-Texas, 2005
-- (14 games) 716-Oklahoma, 2008

After dismissing it all year, I'm finally going to recognize the record for 13 games set by Texas in 2005.  Baylor is only 13 points away from tying that record this year, so we should do that.  Still, I don't think many will care.  Interestingly enough, FSU has actually scored 689 points this year, putting them 27 away from OU's record. Since we'll need 78 points against UCF to break OU's record ... that's probably not going to happen.  But it could.

Army's record for points per game (56.0 in 1944) is ... even more out of reach. Had they played 13, Army would have scored 728 points. To score 729, we'll need 90 against UCF. That would be an interesting headline to read.

Baylor Yards Per Game: 624.5
Needed for Total Yards in a Season (2011 Houston): 893 (ypg)
Needed for Yards Per Game (1989 Houston): 631 (ypg)

Since we last looked at this, our average yards per game has fallen by almost 60.  More's the pity.  The record for average yards per game, set by the 1989 Houston Cougars is 624.9.

As I've said before, there are actually two records at play for yards, just like points. The first is the aforementioned yards per game of the 1989 Cougars, who averaged 624.9 yards per game over 11 games. The second is total yards in a season, set at 8387 by the 2011 Houston Cougars. That record came in 14 games, something Baylor can't possibly get.

To break the former record (yards per game), Baylor needs 625 yards per game, or 8125 over 13 games. With 7494 yards through 12 games, Baylor needs 631 against UCF.  Doable?

To break the latter, Baylor needs 893 against UCF. That would be another incredible headline to read, but it's probably not happening.

I'm keeping Levi on there because he's a baller and it's my blog. Dealwithit.

Petty ended the regular season with 30 passing TDs vs. 2 INTs plus another 11 rushing TDs.  So 41 total TDs in 12 games and no invitation to New York City as a Heisman finalist.  That makes sense.

Goodley ended up leading the Big 12 in receiving, and if you guessed that we need to hang out some time and play the ponies.
