99 days till kickoff: Baylor’s #99 Noah Rauschenberg

May 27, 2022

Today we are starting a series of brief player profiles to count down the days until the kickoff of Baylor’s 2022 football on September 3rd against Albany. We will go down Baylor’s roster by number starting with No. 99 Noah Rauschenberg. You can keep track of these profiles through our Offseason Hub where you will also find the stat of the day countdown as well.

A senior from Tulsa, Oklahoma, Noah Rauschenberg has been Baylor’s kickoff specialist for the last three years. He is entering his fourth year with the Bears, but he does have a COVID year to potentially play the 2023 season as well. Noah is an exercise physiology major

This past season was his best as a Bear so far, playing in all 14 games while getting a touchback on 72 of his 83 kickoffs. Those kicks also amassed 5,230 yards, good for 63 yards per kick. He even hit the pylon on the fly with a kickoff during the 2022 Sugar Bowl, in case you weren’t impressed enough by his stats.

During the COVID pandemic and his sophomore season in 2020, he played in eight of Baylor’s nine games. He had 33 kickoffs go for 2,046 yards and 18 touchbacks. He registered the only tackle of his career in the Bears’ win against Kansas State.

As a freshman in 2019, Rauschenberg played in nine games and kicked off 56 times for 3400 total yards, good for 60.7 yards per kick. His touchback percentage was 60.7% or 34-of-56. He also went 4-for-4 on PATs, hitting two against UTSA and two against SFA. Those are the four points he has scored in his Baylor career.

Rauschenberg was a five-star kicking prospect according to Kohl’s and Chris Sailer, good for No. 12 in the nation. He was the No. 22 kicker in ESPN’s national recruit rankings, as well as No. 24 according to 247. Other schools competing for his commitment were Arkansas and Houston.

This is one of my favorite games in McLane Stadium. This drive is one reason why:

This is my favorite game in Austin. Although Texas still had a decent defense (or at least 1-2 good players on defense), Baylor dominated. Our D pitched a shut out for 58 minutes. This drive was great fun because of how it ended:

Last and only time I've been at DKR. It was gold hearing baylor fans and the chants we were making at the end of the game. We were loud and proud.

My thinking exactly. I remember pregame their best player trash talking us: "We're Texas & they're still Baylor."

I loved it his in the 4th quarter we Baylor fans were chanting, "We're still Baylor!" I never heard it in all the times I've watched the game again but I was told that one could hear it on TV.

We need to get another win there on Black Friday: an early Christmas present for everyone in the state of Texas!
