Baylor Wide Receiver Says Catching Passes From Jarrett Stidham Is Almost Like A "Gift From God"

Baylor will have to play the rest of the season without its starting quarterback, Seth Russell, but the Bears appear to be in good shape with Jarrett Stidham. 

The true freshman will take over for Russell, who will miss the rest of the 2015 campaign as he needs neck surgery. Stidham, a former four-star recruit, has looked good when he's played, throwing for 331 yards and six touchdowns. 

His wide receivers apparently like catching his passes very, very much, too.

And, to a man, every #Baylor player today mentioned @Jarrett_Stidham doesn't act, play, throw or carry himself like a true freshman.

That's quite a vote of confidence. 

Baylor has a bye this Saturday before taking on Kansas State Nov. 5.
