Big 12 Football Offenses by the Numbers: Week 6

NCAA Basketball: Big 12 Basketball Tipoff

Week 6 was filled with offensive fireworks. Just about every team had a big game, even if it came in losing efforts. As much as Big 12 defenses have improved over the last few seasons, Week 6 sure looked familiar.

Here are the all the numbers you need regarding Big 12 offenses after Week 6. As always, caveat lector: stats can be deceiving.

0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. . .

0 Interceptions thrown by Baylor QB Gerry Bohanon in six games

3 Touchdowns for Oklahoma QB2 Caleb Williams vs Texas

Note: Baylor’s offensive line is probably the most improved unit in the league this season. As you’ll see, WVU also ranks last in the league in rushing yards per game. If you’re wondering why WVU is struggling so much this season, here’s your answer: the offensive line needs to improve.

As mentioned in Sacks Allowed, West Virginia’s offensive line is clearly struggling.

Note: I included KSU’s Thompson so that every team is represented. Plus, he missed more than 2.5 games (over half of KSU’s games played) due to injury, but he is the league’s most experienced passer, so he is worth keeping an eye on.
