Here's a quick look at how the most potent team in college football stacks up against Iowa State

Baylor in the Art Briles era has become appointment TV. The talent pool is the best in the Big 12: The Bears are just pumping out quarterbacks, running backs, NFL-type wide receivers, everything. They're even playing some defense this season.


But moreso, it's the particular style of offense, which is finesse (vertical) and power (run) at the same time. We'll get into the nuances of Briles' schemes later on in the week, but for now here's a quick look at how the most potent team in college football stacks up against Iowa State.
