Mark Seymour: Final: WVU 38, Baylor 36 - Our Daily Bears: “I didn’t have anything written for this.”

“I’m not kidding; I didn’t have anything prepared for the fourth quarter of this game. Through three, I had a long, meandering post-game post that invoked Unsolved Mysteries and questioned everything about existence. Then we scored 23 points in a row behind true freshman QB Charlie Brewer to earn a 2-point try to send the game to overtime, and all that went into the trash.

“Every week I’ve been looking to see one thing: improvement. I want to see a team that is getting better under Matt Rhule every time they play. Through three quarters, I didn’t think that’s what we were. Now I do again.”

Brice Cherry: The legend of Charlie Brewer is born | Baylor Bears Football | wacotrib.com, And, just like that, the legend of Charlie Brewer was born.

For weeks, Baylor coach Matt Rhule has been practically begging for someone to step up and make a play. For much of Saturday’s game against West Virginia, he was still begging. The Mountaineers built a commanding 38-13 lead through three quarters, and many of the alums who made the trip back to Waco for homecoming had made the trek to the parking lot for the drive home.

And who could blame them? Baylor’s offense seemed locked to a treadmill much of the night. The Bears were running in place.

Then Babyface Brewer came in, and everything suddenly changed. He flipped the script. In fact, he ordered a complete rewrite. (No, really, I almost had my entire gameday column done, until the fourth-quarter fireworks ignited. Kids, man. They always keep you on your toes.)

Charlie Brewer should be Baylor's starting quarterback heading forward, DieHards, Baylor quarterback Charlie Brewer made his case for being the starting quarterback.

No. 23 West Virginia survives frantic Baylor comeback bid, Reuters, No. 23 West Virginia Mountaineers survive frantic Baylor comeback bid. West Virginia let a 25-point lead dissolve to almost nothing, but still avoided overtime versus Baylor.

Baylor quarterback Zach Smith completed 16 of 27 passes for 261 yards with no interceptions in three quarters. But he was also sacked five times, which was why Rhule said he pulled the starting QB.

“I didn’t want him to continue to stay in there and take a beating,” Rhule said. “One thing that Charlie brings to the table is the ability to run. It kind of got us going in the run game with some quarterback reads. I think we saw what Charlie brings to the table and the job that he did. We ended up just one play from doing it.”
