Jake Fromm isn’t the only quarterback starting in the Sugar Bowl whose second half of the season has been in a decline of sorts.
Charlie Brewer is expected to return to action for Baylor, which could be a good or bad thing, depending on which Brewer shows up. After averaging at least 9.5 yards an attempt in six of Baylor’s first eight games, Brewer topped 7.0 only once over the final five games.
Brewer’s passer rating declined from 171.41 in October to 128.61 in November. He’s coming off concussion protocol from a hit he took in the Big 12 Championship game.
Tonight’s passing game matchup could be epic. And not in a particularly good way.
