The Baylor Bears may only have one conference victory, but Bill Snyder and the Kansas St. Wildcats still respect the threat that the Bears offense poses. Coach Snyder told the media in his weekly press conference:
"I do not know of a team that has struggled in the win-loss standpoint that has been as effective and dynamic on offense as this football team... Baylor is starting to create balance in their offense and are running the ball effectively... They have a variety of different option type things in regards to quarterback read plays, and their quarterback has the propensity to run the football, and they let him do it. There is a lot of balance there, and it is a very dynamic offense."
Baylor is hoping to ruin Kansas State's BCS dreams, and will need to win a shootout in order to do so. The Bears rank second in the nation in total yards passing, second only to fellow Big XII school Texas Tech. Senior quarterback Nick Florence replaced Robert Griffin III well, throwing for 3191 yards and 25 touchdowns this season.
The Baylor rushing attack is potent as well, as it averages 196.3 yards-per-game. Glasco Martin and Jarred Salubi split carries evenly, as each has at least 100 touches this season. Both runners average over four yards-per-carry as well.
Overall, the Bears offense is second in the Big XII in scoring, only trailing the Oklahoma State Cowboys. The Wildcats cannot take the Bears lightly despite their conference record.
