Baylor loses their HC Mat Rhule, and two offensive starters in WR Denzel Mims and OL Sam Tecklenberg. They also lose significant contribution in RB JaMycal Hasty and WR Chris Platt. Still, with most of their starters and contributors – like RB duo Terrel Bernard and John Lovett,- returning on offense, there isn’t much concern. Especially if senior QB Charlie Brewer can stay healthy.

With 3,500 yards and 32 total touchdowns, Brewer was statistically in the upper echelon of college football. He did this despite missing basically the entire Big 12 championship and portions of other games. A full healthy season could have put him in striking distance to Trevor Lawrence’s numbers. (4,200 yards, 45 touchdowns).
Ultimately, With another year of experience and most of his weapons returning, this could be a big year for Brewer and Baylor’s offense. In the event Brewer can’t stay healthy back up QBs Gerry Bohanon (sophomore), and Jacob Zeno (redshirt freshman) are still there.
