Baylor 62, West Virginia 38

CFBFR Player of the Game: Seth Russell, QB, Baylor
Three things to know…
1. Corey Coleman is as good as advertised.

The dynamic play maker hauled in 10 catches for 199 yards, and 3 touchdowns. Digging deeper, 90% of his catches went for either a first down or a touchdown.

His ability after the catch was exemplified by his five missed tackles and 86 yards after catch. There is still room to improve for Coleman as two of his targeted passes were dropped.

2. Seth Russell gets it done with both his arm and legs.

The signal caller was impressive on the ground as he managed 49 yards after contact, and forcing six missed tackles. He was never once stuffed behind the line of scrimmage and 7 of his 13 carries resulted in a first down.

Russell was composed under pressure completing 4 of his 8 attempts under duress for 2 touchdowns and 157 yards.

His numbers were less impressive when throwing farther than 10 yards down field, only completing 6 of his 15 attempts.

3. A glimpse into Baylor’s rather simplistic passing game

Baylor is known for it’s high-powered offense, but it’s actually a fairly basic scheme (this was well documented during RG3’s pre-draft process).

One stat from this game stood out as a microcosm of just how simplistic the passing game can be compared to other offenses. Russell attempted 33 passes against West Virginia and only one was across the middle of the field.
