Baylor Special Teams Play Keeps Them Undefeated

Jonathan Grant | November 1st, 2019

Admit it. Unless you’re a huge fan of college football or sports in general, and even if you are, you may not have realized that the Baylor Bears were undefeated coming in Thursday night’s game against Big 12 foe West Virginia. That’s alright, because not many people have taken notice of them.

That might not change too much, either, after the #12 ranked team in the country survived one by the skin of their teeth against the Mountaineers last night. The Bears traded touchdowns back and forth to go into the fourth with the score knotted at 14 apiece. That’s where it got interesting. A 36-yard field goal from John Mayers put them into the lead with a little over ten minutes left, and more special teams play would preserve their unbeaten status. With less than four minutes to go, they would block a field goal from their visitors, ensuring they went to 8-0 on the season. They remain the only team in the conference to be undefeated at this stage, which is quite the accomplishment given their lack of expectations. Charlie Brewer, at quarterback for the Bears, had two TD’s, 277 yards, and went 20-27 in the victory.
