West Virginia Scores 70 Points, Breaks Baylor's Record

It took less than a week, but Baylor's record for most points scored in a bowl game has fallen. Last week, Baylor put up 67 points in the Alamo Bowl en route to defeating Washington, and setting the record for most points scored in a bowl game. Big 12 bound West Virginia broke that record on Wednesday night, when they dismantled Clemson 70-33 in the Orange Bowl.

Unlike the Orange Bowl, Baylor needed to keep scoring to beat Washington in one of the most entertaining bowls of the year. Clemson, meanwhile, trailed 49-20 at the half and was non-competitive in one of the five most prestigious bowl games.
