TCU is ranked #9 coming into this game with #6 Baylor. Its a massive game for both teams obviously, TCU playing top ranked teams in consecutive week’s, Baylor playing its biggest home game of the year. Kick off of the game will be 6.30am sunday morning.
Here are some nice cut ups of Blake from last week’s game vs Texas.
This clip on the split zone play, you can see him at left guard come off the double team on the nose tackle then pancake #3 at the linebacker level.
Next play, he comes off the double team earlier again for the linebacker.
This play is important as he picks up the blitzing linebacker at the point of attack, forces his momentum up and the RB makes 8 yards.
This play he has to control the Nose and stay on him as the Center slides off.
Finally, vs the 33 stack, the Nose slants backside and Blake goes 1 on 1 with the LB on the power play for 17 yards.

The Baylor Bears notched up a difficult 28-7 victory of the Texas Longhorns in Austin, Texas. The Bears are now 5-0 for the 2014 season on a weekend when 11 of the top 25 teams were defeated.
The Baylor passing game was off but the run game notched up 278 yards on a massive 60 carries. Blake had arguably the best game of his career, consistently engaging the formidable Texas defensive linemen and with his team mates taking over the game in the second half while the passing game struggled.
Baylor will now play Texas Christian University next week at home, a team coming off a big win over Oklahoma.

Tomorrow #7 ranked Baylor play Texas. Some very kind words from ncaa.com on how the Baylor OL is yet to give up a sack so far in 2014; one of only 2 teams.
Article can be found here.
Texas has a very good Defensive Tackle in Malcolm Brown who will likely finish the season as All Big-12. Its probably going to be the most difficult opponent that Blake has had to face in his career.
Below is a good review of the last game vs the Cyclones. Speaking of bad weather in general. Waco suffered through a very severe lightning storm yesterday, the forecast for the game in Austin tomorrow is for fine weather.
