Only one team (BYU) in the Big 12 is scoring fewer points per game than Baylor (22.4). The Bears are also recording the fourth-fewest total yards per game (381.8) in the conference. They have not won a game since their 32-29 win over Cincinnati on Oct. 21.
On defense, Oklahoma State and Houston are the only two Big 12 schools allowing more yards per game than Baylor (412.5). Opponents are scoring 33.3 points per game against Baylor, which is the most in the conference.
The Mountaineers are touting the second-best rushing attack in the conference with 232.9 yards per game on the ground after their 424-yard performance against Cincinnati. On the flip side, they are the only team in the conference throwing for under 200 yards per game (197.9).
