Baylor’s Front got a Crash-Course In ‘The History Of Football’ in Week One

Sports

The Abilene Christian Wildcats ran some exotic defenses against the Baylor Offensive line as they prepare to go against a team in UTSA, that gave them fits a season ago.

The Bears were able to rack up over 600 yards of offense, 295 of those on the ground in the win over the Wildcats. Coach Rhule was happy with the way his guys handled all of the different looks.

“I texted their defensive coordinator that he did the history of football. Man defense, odd defense, he ran everything you could run, and some of it gave us problems. But I think Teck (Sam Tecklenburg) did a great job. We have some really smart guys who are starting to think like second and third level, and they’re telling me what’s happening, and I’ll be like, ‘Yeah, you’re right,’ so that’s the level of play coming from Tecklenburg in terms of intelligence.

The Bears will need that knowledge facing a UTSA team that held Baylor to 274 yards last season, in Waco.
