Things we learned

From Stanford learning a lesson against ASU to Baylor's offensive onslaught, here are the things we learned from the fourth weekend of college football play. More ...

Martin suffered a broken ankle playing basketball this past spring and was expected to be available for Baylor's opener against Wafford, but ended up missing the entire non-conference slate. Baylor hasn't exactly missed its power back. It became the first team since LSU in 1930 to score 60 or more points in its first three games, per ESPN.

Martin, a 6-foot, 200-pound redshirt senior, ran for 889 yards and a team-high 15 touchdowns last season, serving as the 'Thunder' to Lache Seastrunk's 'Lightning' for the Big 12's top rushing offense.

The addition of Martin's bruising between-the-tackles style makes the Baylor offense that much more difficult to defend (averaging 444 passing yards and 307 rushing yards per game) and only adds to the team's credentials as a real contender to win a conference championship for the first time since 1994 and reach a BCS bowl.
