Baylor In For A Battle North of The Red

Waco, TX - Baylor will look to win their second game in Norman this weekend when  they take on the Oklahoma Sooners at Gaylord Family Stadium.

The Bears will have to find an answer for Oklahoma's dynamic offense helmed, by Kyler Murray. The Sooners were taken to overtime by the Army Black Knights, because Army held the ball for almost 45 minutes, to Oklahoma's 15.

While The Bears are second in the conference in time of possession don't expect them to bust out the wing-T this weekend.

"I don't think we're built like that," Rhule said. "You'd love to go out there and slow the game down, keep their offense off the field, but that's not where we are right now. We'll have to go out there and just be us. Army limits mistakes and that's how they win"

The Bears Quarterback Charlie Brewer took control of his Baylor offense for a majority of the game against Kansas. As he continues to grow into his role as Baylor's signal caller he's showing everyone what his teammates and coaches have always known about him.

"Charlie's kind of a quiet guy," Head Coach Matt Rhule said. "He's stoic, but he likes to play. I thanked him after the game on Saturday, he really put his body on the line a lot. He ran the football. We had some designed runs where he got hit, I'd love for him to slide, he's not always doing that. But he's a competitor, he's a winner. I think as time progresses, you'll see more and more of his personality come out."

The Bears are 1-10 all time against Oklahoma teams ranked in the top-10.
