Nebraska Cornhuskers vs. Baylor Bears - Big 12 Stats Rankings

Granted these statistics are about three games, but after the jump are Nebraska’s and Baylor’s ranking in Big 12 statistical categories. I was looking around, wondering what Baylor does well. Turns out... they don’t do a lot very well. On the other hand, I"m not sure we do either. 

These are Big 12 statistics only. Nebraska has played Missouri, Texas Tech, and Iowa State - which means we’ve faced two of the best offenses in the nation. Baylor has played Oklahoma, Iowa State, and Oklahoma State - which means they’ve faced two really good offensive teams too.
