Baylor redshirt senior QB Bryce Petty and senior WR Antwan Goodley have a goal of being the "best quarterback-receiver duo in the nation."
Any gains that either of these players makes over the offseason will test the resolve of Big 12 defensive coordinators, as Petty put up 4,200 yards and 32 TDs last year and Goodley collected 71 receptions for 1,339 yards with 13 touchdowns. "We have to prove last year wasn’t a fluke," Petty said. "For us it’s ‘Ok, we were the best in the Big 12, why not the best in the nation?’ The encore is to be the best quarterback-receiver duo in the nation and lead Baylor to a Big 12 championship for a second time and get into the playoff and win a national championship."

The NCAA Football Rules Committee recommended offenses can't snap the ball with more than 29 seconds on the play clock, allowing defenses a window to make substitutions.

This would not impact the final two minutes of each half. If the ball is snapped before 10 seconds has run off the play clock, a 5-yard penalty will be assessed. We are not sure if this recommendation will come into fruition, since it could considerably limit faster paced offenses. Tempo prevents defenses from changing their personnel. This is being framed as a safety issue, but if that is the case why doesn't the committee view Alabama's style a safety concern, since they might run "power" 30 times a game?

Baylor redshirt junior QB Bryce Petty completed 30 of 47 attempts for 356 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in Wednesday's 52-42 loss in the Fiesta Bowl against UCF.

Petty also ran for three touchdowns. The cannon-armed junior barely overshot several deep passes on Wednesday. Baylor's timing was a bit off and it needed to be perfect to keep pace with the Knights' offense. Petty will return to school next season and was ranked by's Gil Brandt as the No. 1 senior-to-be-quarterback. Bears' coach Art Briles said last month that he believes Petty will be a top-five pick in the 2015 draft.

Baylor head coach Art Briles believes redshirt junior QB Bryce Petty will be a top five pick after next season.

"Now we have a good feel how Bryce functions, what he can do, and next year I think he'll be phenomenal. I think he'll be a top-five pick in 2015, no question," Briles said on the College Football 24/7. Petty will be competing with Florida State's Jameis Winston, Oregon's Marcus Mariota, and possibly UCF's Blake Bortles and Wyoming's Brett Smith.
Thu, Dec 12, 2013 10:22:00 AM's Gil Brandt ranked Baylor redshirt junior QB Bryce Petty as the No. 1 senior-to-be-quarterback.

Petty has thrown for 3,557 yards and 28 touchdowns against only two interceptions in 2013. "I like Petty, first of all, because I have a great deal of confidence in head coach Art Briles, who told me as far back as two years ago that he thought Petty could be the best QB he's ever coached -- this coming from a guy who has coached the likes of Robert Griffin III and Kevin Kolb," Brandt wrote. "Petty has both a strong and accurate arm. He gets the ball to his receivers in a hurry, but he also puts it right into his receivers' hands."

Baylor redshirt junior QB Bryce Petty reiterated he will return to school for the 2014 season.

"I will definitely be back next year," Petty told KWTX-TV. This is the second time in the last few days that Petty has declared his intention of staying. Initial expectations believed numerous non-seniors would declare, but that number has seemingly dropped in recent days.

Baylor redshirt junior QB Bryce Petty told reporters he will "definitely" return to school for the 2014 season.

Many considered Petty one of the top quarterback prospects and guessed he would enter the draft if Baylor continued their undefeated streak. Petty then displayed some flaws in his game when pressured by Oklahoma State, which evaluators appreciated seeing since he was able to succeed in an offense that minimized pressure. He will enter next season as one of the top prospects at the position.

Baylor redshirt junior QB Bryce Petty completed 28 of 48 attempts for 359 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 49-17 loss against Oklahoma State.

Petty's final numbers look pretty, but he and his offensive cohorts were utterly ineffective in falling behind 28-3 after three quarters. The best news on an awful night for Baylor fans, perhaps, was this Petty quote: "We'll bounce back from this. I'm not going anywhere, and we're not going anywhere. We still have a lot to accomplish." Expect Petty to return for his senior season.

Baylor redshirt junior QB Bryce Petty completed 17 of 31 attempts for 335 yards and three touchdowns in the school's 63-34 win over Texas Tech.

Petty added nine rushing yards and two touchdowns on the ground, but he also fumbled on one of his carries. The buzz seems to be growing with Petty, specifically due to his placement at every level of the field and arm to hit any throw. We wouldn't be surprised to see him declare for May's draft.
Sun, Nov 17, 2013 11:18:00 AM's Gil Brandt believes Baylor redshirt junior QB Bryce Petty can thrive in any system.

"Beyond his ability to beat you with both his arm and his legs, what impresses me about Petty is that he's proved his willingness to compete and learn," Brandt writes. The former NFL executive also notes Baylor's spread offense moves receivers outside with only three yards left away from the sideline compare to the normal six. Brandt says this allows even more space for accurate throws and success on the ground.

Baylor head coach Art Briles received a three year extension, meaning he is now signed through the 2023 season.

Briles received an eight year contract last year with a salary around $3.5 million. Not only did that figure likely increase, but beat writers also suggest Briles' assistant coaches were taken care of in the new deal as well. The emerging head coach has been linked to the USC opening and Texas.

Baylor redshirt junior Bryce Petty completed 13-of-26 passing attempts for 204 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions in Thursday's 41-12 thrashing of Oklahoma.

Petty accounted for five touchdowns total, rushing for two en route to 45 yards on the ground. This was only the second time all season that Baylor had been "held" to less than 59 points, and it was the first time that Petty had thrown for less than 300 yards. Petty will surpass 3,000 passing yards as soon as next week and has posted a sick 21/1 TD/INTO ratio.
Thu, Nov 7, 2013 11:33:00 PM's Bucky Brooks has moved Baylor redshirt junior Bryce Petty up to his No. 7 QB in college football.

"Skeptics are anxiously awaiting Baylor's Big 12 showdown with Oklahoma to see if the hype surrounding Petty's game is merited," Brooks writes. Petty is ahead of the likes of Clemson's Tajh Boyd, UCLA's Brett Hundley, and LSU's Zach Mettenberger on this list.
Thu, Nov 7, 2013 12:43:00 PM's Bucky Brooks has moved Baylor redshirt junior Bryce Petty up to the No. 8 QB in college football.

Petty was previously ranked at No. 11. "The Bears have topped the 70-point mark four times in seven games, while rarely playing the first-teamers into the fourth quarter," Brooks writes. We haven't spotlighted Petty, but from afar his placement on timing to lead receivers in stride on short patterns or vertical shots has been impressive.

Baylor redshirt junior QB Bryce Petty completed 20-of-32 attempts for 430 yards and three touchdowns in a 59-14 victory over the Jayhawks.

He also rushed for 22 yards and a touchdown. ESPN's Mel Kiper ranked Petty as the No. 6 QB in the class earlier this month. Petty is posting gigantic numbers, and NFL executives will be watching closely when Baylor begins a four-game stretch against Oklahoma, Texas Tech, Oklahoma State and TCU on November 7.
