Last year Dave Aranda was the defensive coordinator of the 15-0 national champion LSU Tigers. He has long been regarded as one of the great defensive minds in the game. Aranda was an obvious choice for a Baylor program with national championship dreams. Overall Baylor posted an 11-3 mark for the 2019 College Football betting Games. And a berth in the Sugar Bowl. Head coach Matt Rhule cashed in with an NFL gig. The Aranda era begins Saturday against the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs. So too has La-Tech coach Skip Holtz led the Bulldogs to unprecedented success.

Louisiana Tech Bulldogs Team Overview
At the beginning of this year is Louisiana Tech a Conference USA favorite. Of great concern is a roster in transition at many positions. Including at quarterback. But Holtz’s record gives him the benefit of the doubt. Running back Justin Henderson ran for 1062 yards in 2019.
Baylor Bears Team Overview
Matt Rhule deserves credit for the rapid return to glory of Baylor. The Art Briles crash and burn is long behind the Bears. Aranda brings national championship street cred as the LSU defensive coordinator. Also factoring large is senior quarterback Charlie Brewer. For 2019 Brewer threw for 3161 yards and 21 touchdown passes. Brewer is in range of breaking Robert Griffin III’s school passing records. Namely, John Mayers nailed 16 of 19 field goals in 2019.
