In case you were unaware, the Baylor Bears – led by All-World wide receiver Corey Coleman – are ridiculously good this season. We’ve been saying it since Week 2.
Baylor has always been a spread-covering, point-scoring machine under Art Briles – but the 2015 season has been insane. After dropping a casual 62 on West Virginia (a decent team) this afternoon, that makes five straight games Baylor has scored north of 60. Their season low?
56 points in Week 1.
Because you want to know the stat, that means Baylor is averaging 64 points a game. It’s crazy to think that number isn’t the most impressive stat about the Bears, but Corey Coleman is that good.
It only took Coleman 15 minutes to score twice against West Virginia today, which gave Coleman a school-record 15 touchdowns on the year. He added his 16th of the season in the third quarter.
And did this.
Yep, Corey Coleman only needed half a season to break Kendall Wright’s mark from 2011. And considering he’s now on pace to score 32 touchdowns this season, Troy Edwards’ NCAA record of 27 receiving scores might be broken after standing since 1998. It’s worth mentioning some dude named Jerry Rice also had 27 touchdowns in a season (1984), which is the FCS record.
After guys like Wright and Terrance Williams, Coleman appears to be the next Baylor wideout who will be lighting it up on Sundays soon – and it’s probably safe to say that he’s the best one yet.
It’s also safe to say he’s the best wideout in America, and that his name should absolutely be on the Heisman ballot in a couple months.
