Baylor has won 8 in a row dating back to last season by an average of 16.3 points. It's last 6 wins have come by an average of 21.0 points.

The Bears lost Robert Griffin III and a couple other key offensive players from last year's team, but they are still clearly an offensive machine with averages of 578 yards and 53.5 points per game in the early going.

Much has been made of Louisiana-Monroe's start, which has included an overtime win at Arkansas and an overtime loss to Auburn. Keep in mind that it trailed by 3 TDs against Arkansas and likely wouldn't have won had QB Tyler Wilson played the second half. Also keep in mind that Auburn hasn't looked very good at all in the early going. It curently ranks 104th in the nation in total offense with 336 yards per game.

The Warhawks first two games assure us that Baylor will not be overlooking them tonight.
