Here are five things to keep an eye on today when Baylor takes on Kansas State at 2:30 p.m. at Bill Snyder Family Stadium:
1. Robert Griffin III. It’s not often a white-hot quarterback comes to Manhattan, so enjoy watching this guy. Griffin, a Heisman Trophy contender, is off to a ridiculous start. Baylor is 3-0, ranked 15th nationally and he has thrown 13 touchdown passes compared to 12 interceptions. Craziest stat you’ve seen in a while, right?
2. Arthur Brown. We’ve already seen the drastic difference he has made on K-State’s defense, but today we will REALLY get to see it. A year ago, Griffin and Baylor’s offense chewed up K-State for 683 total yards and 47 points. The Bears put on a clinic. Despite all that, the Bears only won by five points. With Brown leading the way at linebacker, the Wildcats are a totally different group. How much less yardage will they allow today?
3. John Hubert. The sophomore running back is coming off a breakout game. Now we find out what he has in store for an encore. Last week’s 166-yard effort at Miami was impressive. Today he will take on his home-town college. Growing up in Waco, he always wanted to play for a Big 12 school, and accepted a scholarship from K-State the day it offered. There will be extra emotions for him today. Will that help or hurt his performance?
