Behind The Green & Gold: Baylor Scores Fast

WACO (September 19, 2013) -- Baylor scores fast and scores a lot.

The starters for the 20th-ranked Bears have played less than 25 minutes combined in two lopsided victories. They have already scored 101 points, an average of four points a minute.

Two years after Robert Griffin III won the Heisman Trophy and then a record-setting season by Nick Florence, the Bears are the nation's highest-scoring team with 69½ points a game. They're also the top offense with 737 total yards a game.

The 17 touchdown drives for the offense has averaged 1 minute, 11 seconds each, with only one taking more than 2 minutes. The 14 touchdown drives with quarterback Bryce Petty and the starters have averaged 1 minute, 19 seconds each.

Baylor plays its final non-conference game Saturday at home against Louisiana-Monroe.

The Bears' six-game winning streak is the longest in the Big 12.
