Drilling down a little deeper, Rice is averaging 3.76 yards per play against Baylor's 12.33.

Baylor is allowing 2.3 yards per rush, including sacks, and Driphus Jackson is 5/11 for 82 yards and 1 TD.

Baylor Stat Leaders:

Seth Russell -- 11/14 for 255 yards and 5 TDs, with no interceptions.
Corey Coleman -- 6 catches for 100 yards and 3 TDs, 3 carries for 28 yards.
Shock Linwood -- 14 carries for 110 yards, 1 TD

Defensive stats are a lot harder to find during a game, but I believe the Bears now have 4 sacks on the day, as many as they had in the first two games combined.  Shawn Oakman, Jamal Palmer, Taylor Young, and Aiavion Edwards each have 1, by my reckoning.
