Hashtag: Star Baylor quarterback out of season


Things just got interesting in the Big 12 title race as No. 2 Baylor just announced that their starting quarterback, Seth Russell, would be out for the season due to a neck injury sustained in their game versus Iowa State.

The phenomenal junior has had a heck of a year throwing for over 2000 yards and 29 touchdowns and has completed 59.5 percent of his passes with six interceptions.

Taking Russell’s place is the five-star freshman out of Stephenville, Texas Jarrett Stidham.

Stidham has complete 24-28 passes for over 300 yards and has thrown for six touchdowns.

The Bears come to Manhattan a week from Thursday for a nationally televised week-day match-up.
