Numbers to Know about Baylor

Mention of the last game between Kansas State and No. 15 Baylor likely makes Wildcat fans cringe and Bears fans fondly reminisce. Baylor hung a school-record 638 yards on Kansas State that day, giving Waco a 47-42 happy ending to Homecoming Week. A little less than a year later, the Bears still terrorize defenses. When they come to Manhattan on Saturday, however, the defense across the field (currently ranked No. 6 in the nation) from them probably won’t look very familiar.

With so much having changed from last year to this year, it’s anyone’s guess what will happen in this game. That said, here are some stats that tell you what’s happened to Baylor before during the tenure of coach Art Briles.

  • 15-4 when leading at halftime
  • 3-17 when trailing at halftime
  • 11-6 when scoring first
  • 7-16 when opponent scores first
  • 0-12 when scoring less than 20 points
  • 9-0 when scoring more than 40 points
  • 10-0 when opponent scores less than 20 points
  • 8-22 when opponent scores more than 20 points
  • 4-19 when opponent scores more than 30 points
  • 0-11 when gaining less than 300 yards
  • 8-1 when opponent gains less than 300 yards
  • 4-13 when opponent converts on third down at least 50% of the time
