As always, keep track of both the stats and roster countdowns in the Offseason Hub!


In 2019, Baylor’s defense totaled 46 sacks on the season, the most in program history.

Lynch broke the BU single-season sack record in 2019 with 13.5 QB takedowns. 

The defensive attack was led by First Team All-American James Lynch. At defensive tackle, Lynch broke the BU single-season sack record with 13.5 quarterback takedowns in 2019. Lynch had multi-sack performances against Rice, Texas, Texas Tech, and Oklahoma in the Big 12 Championship Game. He even had a three-sack performance in the victory over Kansas State. 

Lynch was voted Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year, Big 12 Defensive Lineman of the Year, and First Team All-Big 12. At the conclusion of the season, Lynch was selected 130th overall by the Minnesota Vikings in the 2019 NFL Draft. He left Baylor as the all-time sack leader with 22 QB takedowns. 

Another key piece on the Bears’ d-line was First Team All-Big 12 nose tackle Bravion Roy. Not only could Roy clog up the middle, but he also added 5.5 sacks on the season. The senior from Spring, Texas went on to get drafted in the sixth round of the 2019 Draft by the Carolina Panthers.

James Lockhart was second on the team with six sacks.

The redshirt senior James Lockhart also had a huge season, thanks in part to playing next to James Lynch and Bravion Roy. He was second on the team with six sacks and earned Big 12 Honorable Mention Honors. 

Linebackers Blake Lynch and Clayton Johnson combined for six sacks.

As a sophomore in 2019, Terrel Bernard earned Second Team All-Big 12 honors and finished the season with four sacks and a team-leading 112 tackles.

Jordan Williams, Grayland Arnold, JT Woods, Ross Matiscik, Jalen Pitre, Chidi Ogbonnaya, TJ Franklin, and Niadre Zouzoua all had at least one sack on the season. 

Bralen Taylor, Matt Jones, and Brayden Utley all had .5 of a sack as well. 

And for those wondering, the Bears had 44 sacks in 2021, two shy of the 2019 record of 46.
