This is a big blow to Baylor, one of the favorites to make the College Football Playoff, but luckily, former five-star recruit Jarrett Stidham is waiting in the wings. In mop up duty this year, the true freshman has been impressive, completing 24-of-28 passes for 331 yards and six touchdowns so far this season.

Stidham will presumably start on November 5 against Kansas State.
