In his first season at the helm under center, Baylor Bears QB Bryce Petty has certainly kept this new found tradition of great Baylor signal callers alive.
Through 11 games this season, Petty has thrown for 3,557 yards, 28 touchdowns to just two interceptions. He’s also accrued 11 rushing touchdowns for himself along the way as well as he and his Bears team have accumulated a 10-1 record on the year.
This Baylor team has been maybe the greatest ever, so it would be a shame if they would have to replace Petty for next season if he were to head off to the NFL Draft following this, his junior season.
Well, luckily for head coach Art Briles and his staff, they won’t have to worry about that dilemma.
On Monday, Petty made it clearly known that he will be back next season so he and his team can make another run at a conference and national championship:
