QB Smith ready, eager to start on the road against Duke”

Brewer takes over the backup job after Baylor coach Matt Rhule announced Tuesday that former starter Anu Solomon is now going through concussion protocol. 'I've waited my turn. "Get the chemistry going, just come together and we will". I think he can give us something in the run game. He's got some experience with four starts under his belt after replacing injured senior starter Seth Russell in the ninth game last season.

"He got out there today, and he's yelling at guys where to get lined up". I've never really seen Zach move around because he came off that injury in the bowl game in the spring.

"I thought we played a much better game than last week from a defensive standpoint", Johnston said. "He can move around and scramble a little bit". Baylor gave up 585 total yards and four touchdowns in the loss to Liberty, including 447 passing yards and three touchdowns through the air.

"I just was impressed that Zach threw his helmet on, when he's out on the sideline with his headset and we see blood, and he goes out there and completes a 16-yard in-cut in man-to-man coverage with people all around him", Rhule said.

Senior offensive tackle Mo Porter said the team has a lot of confidence and belief in Smith, because "we know he can go out there and do the job for us". The Bears held the Roadrunners to 17 points and allowed 375 yards of offense. "So 'Why is Coach Rhule so positive?' because they need positivity".

"I thought Taion Sells would be out there", Rhule said, " I thought Grayland Arnold would be out there for us, I thought Jameson Houston would be out there playing for us". And then the three freshman tailbacks, me not wanting to be too diverse where we miss something.

"I'm kind of upset about being 0-2, but I realize these kids have lost eight of their last nine and that takes a toll on you", Rhule said. "I've got some more experience coming in, and I've really been preparing hard these last few weeks, and I'm going to prepare hard this week". "I said, 'You guys go do it this week, and I'll keep myself over here"'. "We're young. We're still trying to get through the cracks". Starting 0-2, even with the departures of players due to the scandal and graduation, was not what Rhule had anticipated. "I think they need to play a game they are not picked to win". That's really always been my challenge to (Wilson), be a great teammate. "Let's just go play and have fun'".

"Those are the victories we're looking for right now", he said. "I think winning would really help them, but they're making the most of the lessons they're learning, which is why I think we'll have a championship culture from it".

"I'm real excited to go out there and face Duke", Smith said. They're obviously one of the best teams in the ACC right now, and they look like a top-25 team.

Beginning with the Duke game, Baylor's schedule will get much tougher with No. 2 Oklahoma on September 23 at McLane Stadium, Kansas State on September 30 in Manhattan and Oklahoma State on October 14 in Stillwater.
