Robert Griffin III didn't waste anytime getting off to a quick start in the 2011 Valero Alamo Bowl. Baylor leads Washington 21-7 at the end of the first quarter behind two touchdowns and a number of highlights from Griffin III already.
On their first possession, Baylor marched 85 yards in 13 plays for an early 7-0 lead after Griffin III found Kendall Wright for an 11 yard touchdown pass. Washington answered right back and tied the game 7-7 on a Keith Price five yard touchdown run. The big play on that drive was a 42 yard completion from Price to Devin Aguilar.
On Baylor's second possession, the Bears marched 63 yards highlighted by a 36 yard touchdown run by Jarred Salubi who was escorted into the end zone by Robert Griffin III who was in front lead blocking on the play. After a Washington punt, Griffin put Baylor up 21-7 with an 82 yard drive that was capped off by a 24 yard scoring run by the Heisman trophy winner.
