Baylor’s Bryce Petty is looking forward to playing an entire game

Yeah, blowing out your opponents and accumulating video game is fun. But Baylor quarterback Bryce Petty really wants to play until the end of the fourth quarter.

He should get his chance Thursday night against Oklahoma. At least, that's what he's envisioning anyway.

"The 70-point games are great. Being done at halftime is great, but I want to be in there," Petty said during his Monday press conference. "I want the ball in my hands. Again like I said I’ve been waiting for this. What I haven’t been waiting for is to be out by halftime so this will be a big game for us, but it will be one I’m definitely ready for and I’m excited to play."

That's a good problem to have, don't you think?

Petty has only played in the fourth quarter once this season, and that was in Baylor's 35-25 win at Kansas State on October 12. Not coincidentally, that's the closest game that undefeated Baylor has played in this season. That's probably why the line for Thursday's top-10 showdown is at 14 points. Well, that, and the fact that Vegas is having to artificially inflate Baylor lines. Any other No. 6 vs. No. 10 matchup likely has a single digit point spread.

Despite the lack of full games, Petty's numbers have put him on the periphery of the Heisman race. He's 122-176 for 2,453 yards passing and has 18 touchdowns (plus another six rushing) and just one interception. With Baylor's game kicking off 90 minutes ahead of Oregon and Marcus Mariota, it's the rare head-to-head chance for for the two quarterbacks to indirectly play "anything you can do, I can do better."
