Robert Griffin And Baylor Demolish Rice, 56-31

Robert Griffin III laid down more evidence of his Heisman candidacy, completing 28 of 32 passes for 332 yards and 5 TD against Rice. For good measure he tossed in 51 rushing yards and one more TD on six carries. Baylor’s four backs added 233 yards, led by Glasco Martin’s 76 on six carries. Kendall Wright led the way on the receiving end, catching ten passes for 111 yards and a TD.

In all, Baylor piled up a total of 655 yards and 56 points – all of the points coming in the first three quarters. Their defense was a bit porous, allowing 31 Rice points and 416 yards, but the game was never in doubt after the Bears jumped out to a 28-0 lead.

After averaging 51 points per game in their out-of-conference matchups, Baylor will begin Big 12 play in Manhattan in one week. Kansas State posted an impressive road win on Saturday, hanging on to top Miami 28-24.
