Nick Florence has experience filling in for RG3

Before he even takes a snap as Robert Griffin III's successor, Baylor quarterback Nick Florence is "already a success story."


"He was salutatorian in his class of 500, he's already married, already graduated," head coach Art Briles said Tuesday at Big 12 Media Days.


Florence has actually been through this before. He played eight games in 2009 with RG3 out with a knee injury, completing 62 percent of his passes.


Last season, RG3 was knocked out of a game against Texas Tech early with a concussion and Florence took over -- sacrificing a redshirt season -- to go 9-for-12 for 151 yards and a touchdown that helped clinch a win.
