Baylor Offensive Statistics Through 3 Games

That guy in the back is saying "Damn. That dude is fast." - Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

The complete stats, plus a few projections, for Baylor's offense now that the non-conference schedule is complete. The numbers are, it's safe to say, impressive.

On the heels of DFank's wonderful stats post last week, a few numbers about the Baylor 2013 offense.

Team Summary:

Passing Rushing Total Offense First Downs Penalties Turnovers
Split G Cmp Att Pct Yds TD Att Yds Avg TD Plays Yds Avg Pass Rush Pen Tot No. Yds Fum Int Tot
Offense 3 22.0 29.3 75.0 437.0 3.7 47.0 314.3 6.7 4.7 76.3 751.3 9.8 14.7 15.7 0.7 31.0 8.7 87.7 0.7 0.3 1.0
Defense 3 13.7 29.7 46.1 186.7 0.7 48.0 110.3 2.3 0.3 77.7 297.0 3.8 6.0 7.7 2.3 16.0 5.0 38.3 1.3 1.7 3.0
Difference +8.3 -0.4 +28.9 +250.3 +3.0 -1.0 +204.0 +4.4 +4.4 -1.4 +454.3 +6.0 +8.7 +8.0 -1.6 +15.0 +3.7 +49.4 -0.6 -1.4 -2.0

We're averaging 450 yards more than we're giving up, including +204 on the ground so far.  We are also nearly doubling up our opponents in first downs, despite scoring nearly all of our touchdowns through big plays and/or quick drives.

The offense is just about averaging a first down every single play.  Let that sink in.  Baylor's 751 yards per game is 130 more than the second-highest team, which actually is not Oregon.  It's UCLA.

The Quarterbacks:

Passing
Rk Player Cmp Att Pct Yds Y/A AY/A TD Int Rate
1 Bryce Petty 50 67 74.6 1001 14.9 17.3 8 0 239.5
2 Seth Russell 17 22 77.3 332 15.1 15.8 3 1 239.9

Baylor doesn't just have the top-rated QB in the nation by passer rating, we have the top 2. Or at least we would, if Russell qualified for the stat according to ESPN.

Projected over an entire season, Petty's stats for 2013 would come out to...

Passing
Year School Conf Class Pos Cmp Att Pct Yds Y/A AY/A TD Int Rate
2013 Baylor Big 12 JR QB 200 268 74.6 4004 14.9 17.3 32 0 239.5
2013 Baylor 50 67 74.6 1001 14.9 17.3 9 0 239.5

That would easily be the greatest QB season in the history of CFB, so it probably won't happen.  But it could, I guess.

And if you prefer ESPN's cooked-up QBR...

That makes me happy.

The Running Backs:

Rushing Receiving Scrimmage

1 Lache Seastrunk 38 417 11.0 6 38 417 11.0 6

10 Peni Tagive 1 3 3.0 1 3 3.0 0
11 Lynx Hawthorne 1 -1 -1.0 2 14 7.0 0 3 13 4.3 0

Not much to say here, so I'll leave it at that.  For some reason, the table I ported over from Sports-Reference didn't have touchdowns, so I had to put them in.  Let me know if any part of it is wrong.

The Wide Receivers:

Rushing Receiving Scrimmage
Rk Player Att Yds Avg TD Rec Yds Avg TD Plays Yds Avg TD
9 Antwan Goodley 1 5 5.0 14 370 26.4 4 15 375 25.0 4
11 Lynx Hawthorne 1 -1 -1.0 2 14 7.0 0 3 13 4.3 0
12 Tevin Reese 15 350 23.3 3 15 350 23.3 3
13 Jay Lee 8 98 12.3 1 8 98 12.3 1
14 Robbie Rhodes 7 65 9.3 0 7 65 9.3 0
15 Corey Coleman 6 129 21.5 1 6 129 21.5 1
16 Levi Norwood 5 119 23.8 1 5 119 23.8 1
17 Clay Fuller 3 84 28.0 1 3 84 28.0 1
18 Jerod Monk 2 53 26.5 0 2 53 26.5 0
19 Jordan Najvar 2 23 11.5 0 2 23 11.5 0
20 Brandon Brown 1 22 22.0 0 1 22 22.0 0
21 Darius Jones 1 5 5.0 0 1 5 5.0 0
22 Cal Spangler 1 1 1.0 0 1 1 1.0 0

Ignore the number to the very far left.  That's where they were in the S-R table, and it's still there for reasons I don't altogether understand.

This is obviously a very strong group, led by the two-headed monster of Goodley and Reese, neither of whom I gave nearly enough credit to before the season.

So there you have it, more evidence that our offense is amazing.  If you're interested in the rest of the conference, have at ye.
