Baylor took care of business on Saturday against Stephen F. Austin and finally put something on film for coaches and pundits to dissect. Wins are never as good as you think and losses are never as bad. With all that being said, lets look at what we learned about the offense in Baylor’s win over Stephen F. Austin.
The Offensive Line Is A Work In Progress
The left side of the line is locked down with Connor Galvin, Sam Tecklenberg and center Jake Fruhmorgen however right side was a little shaky at times. Redshirt freshman Prince Pines and JUCO transfer Blake Bedier got the start and did some good and some bad things. It’s okay against a team like the Lumberjacks, but it won’t cut it in Big 12 play. This unit will need to come together and improve moving forward in 2019.
RJ Sneed Is A Fun, New Target For Charlie Brewer
Sneed showed out against the Lumberjacks and showed why coaches have raved about him all fall camp. Sneed had 5 receptions for 57 yards and two touchdowns. With Denzel Mims getting most of the secondary’s attention, Sneed provides a reliable option for Brewer.
Running Back Depth
Baylor may have one of the deepest running back units in the Big 12. JaMycal Hasty, Trestan Ebner and John Lovett make up a three-headed monster in the backfield for Baylor.
Lovett led all rushers against SFA with 108 yards and a touchdown on just eight carries. Hasty’s stat line was not as impressive with only 25 yards on 10 carries, but we know what he is capable of.
Ebner added another 32 yards on just two carries. Oh, and both runs went for touchdowns. He also proved to be a weapon in the passing attack. He hauled in five catches for 40 yards and another touchdown. He may be the most dynamic offensive weapon Baylor has. Ebner touched the ball seven times on Saturday and if you did the match, three of those were touchdowns.
