There’s no doubt that the strength of Baylor lies in the team’s quarterback and receiving play. Bryce Petty will once again take the controls of Art Briles’ hurry-up no-huddle system, which ranked No. 1 in total offense a year ago. Along with the return of Petty, the Bears will once again have leading receiver Antwan Goodley good, as well as seniors Corey Coleman and Clay Fuller.

The problem offensively could be along the offensive line, even though 2013 All-Conference offensive tackle Spencer Drango returns. The Bears will be forced to replace three of their starting five O-linemen, as only Drango and guard Desmine Hilliard return. Petty’s ability to get the ball out of his hand quickly will help, but there’s no doubt Baylor will need to find chemistry and cohesion along the offensive line if this team is going to challenge for a title berth.

After being a strength a year ago in Waco, the secondary is also a concern heading into the 2014 season. The nickel-based defense will be forced to replace four of its five starters as junior Terrell Burt is the only returning starter from a year ago. Thankfully the Bears return 2013 All-Conference middle linebacker Bryce Hager.

How do oddsmakers view Baylor’s chances to win next year’s FBS title? According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Bears currently are 28/1 long shots to win the FBS championship in 2015. They’re also 7/2 to make the four-team playoff in college football and 1/11 to miss the postseason altogether. Petty is also 12/1 to win the 2014 Heisman Trophy.
