Jayhawks bracing for Baylor’s big offense

The Baylor offense leads the Big 12 in 11 statistical categories and ranks first nationally in four, including total offense (579 yards per game), touchdowns per game (6.6) and fourth-down conversions (18) and attempts (25).

Clearly, that kind of firepower creates more than a little cause for concern for a Kansas University squad that heads to Waco, Texas, this weekend as a 36-point underdog. But don’t think for a second that interim coach Clint Bowen is giving his Jayhawks a pass in preparation just because the 6-1 Bears are such a dangerous machine.

“We tell them all the time, you’re Big 12 football players, this is the kind of game you came to Kansas to play in,” Bowen said. “We’re excited and looking forward to a good week getting ready for them.”

Prepping for a potent Baylor offense is nothing new. Art Briles’ Bears (6-1 overall, 3-1 Big 12) rank as the only squad in the country to sit in the top two in terms of offensive output in each of the past four seasons. A year ago, Baylor’s 619 yards per game led the country, while the 2012 (572) and 2011 (587) teams ranked second.
