If you had any doubts about whether or not Baylor quarterback Bryce Petty would still be suiting up for the Bears next season, Petty put those doubts to rest on Thursday.

"I will definitely be back next year," said Petty while appearing on KWTX-TV in Waco on Wednesday.

Which is good news for Baylor, as Petty has had a rather spectacular season in 2013. He has thrown for 3,557 yards and 28 touchdowns with only two interceptions. He has also averaged 9.5 yards per play this season, which leads the nation, and his passing efficiency of 183.75 is second only to Florida State's Jameis Winston.

Petty had been garnering some Heisman consideration before Baylor lost to Oklahoma State two weeks ago. Petty finished that game with 359 yards passing and two touchdowns, but the majority of those yards came after the game had been settled. However, should Petty put up similar numbers again in 2014 and Baylor continue winning, you have to think he'll be a stronger Heisman contender next season.
