Baylor QB Charlie Brewer reportedly expected to play in Sugar Bowl vs. Georgia
Baylor’s offense will have its leader for its Sugar Bowl matchup against Georgia.
According to Matt Mosley of PressBoxDFW, Bears quarterback Charlie Brewer will be good to go for the Sugar Bowl on Wednesday. Brewer hasn’t practiced since Saturday after he had left injured during the second quarter of the Big 12 Championship Game and had been in concussion protocol since.
Baylor head coach Matt Rhule will address the media on Friday, when the Bears will arrive in New Orleans, so there should be an official update on Brewer’s status then.
Brewer has passed for 2,950 yards and 20 touchdowns this season, leading Baylor to a second-place finish in the Big 12. He’s also rushed for 337 yards and 10 touchdowns.
The Bears will likely need Brewer and their offense to have a big day in order to defeat Georgia, which ranks fourth in the country in total defense with 274.2 yards allowed per game.
Baylor is 11-2 this season, with its only losses both coming against Oklahoma.
The Bears and Bulldogs are set to kick off on Wednesday at 8:45 p.m. on ESPN.
