Baylor may have lost the Big 12 Championship Game to Oklahoma but the Bears nearly won that game despite the fact they were forced to go to their third quarterback against the Sooners.

Now, looking ahead to Baylor’s upcoming Sugar Bowl appearance against Georgia, the Bears expect their starting quarterback to be ready to go against Kirby Smart’s program.

Starting quarterback Charlie Brewer is back on the field and has been cleared to play, according to Matt Rhule. The Baylor coach met with the media on Friday leading up to the 2019 Sugar Bowl.

Brewer was knocked out of the Big 12 Championship Game after suffering a concussion.

The Baylor quarterback has thrown for 2,950 yards with 20 touchdowns and only six interceptions this season. He also has another 334 yards rushing and 10 scores for the Bears.
