Baylor Vs. Washington Score: Bears Come Roaring Back To Take 53-49 Lead To The Fourth

The 2011 Valero Alamo Bowl promised to be exciting and it has lived up to the advanced billing. After Washington scored on the second play of the half, Baylor came roaring back and takes a 53-49 lead into the fourth quarter.

On the second play of the third quarter, Keith Price found Jermaine Kearse for a 80 yard touchdown bomb to extend the Washington lead to 42-24. Baylor would come back with its first touchdown since the first quarter with an 80 yard drive of its on capped off by a Jarred Salubi seven yard touchdown.

Washington would turn the ball over for the first time in the game on their next possession when running back Chris Polk coughed it up and Rodney Chadwick recovered at the Baylor 11 yard line. The Bears needed just one play to score again when Terrance Ganaway broke through the line and sprinted 89 yards for a touchdown. The two-point conversion attempt was good and the Washington lead was cut to 42-39.

With the lead slipping away, Keith Price went back to work and put the Huskies back in the end zone in just two plays with a 60 yard completion to Jermaine Kearse and a 13 yard scoring strike to Devin Aguilar to push the lead back to 49-39.

From their Baylor got back on track scoring 14 unanswered points on two one-yard touchdown runs from Terance Ganaway to re-take the lead at 53-49.
