It's the year of Robert Griffin III in college football and we're all along for the ride. The Baylor junior continued his outstanding season on Saturday as the Bears easily put away Rice, 56-31. But it was Griffin's stats that, once again, deserve attention.
Griffin completed 28 of 32 passes for 332 yards and five touchdowns against the Owls while also rushing for 51 yards and a score. His ability to shred a secondary with his arm has been almost mind-boggling, and certainly entertaining to watch. While we're just three games in, Griffin III is compiling stats at an impressive pace.
Just how good has he been? Let Stewart Mandel explain:
Three games in, Robert Griffin III now has MORE touchdown passes (13) than incompletions (12)
Of all the stats, this one stands out above the crowd. To have more touchdown passes than balls that hit the turf, even if it's just in three games, shows how well Griffin has played.
If you haven't been already, it's time to pay attention to Griffin. You won't regret it.
