Bottom line: Call it “Gone in 60 Seconds.” The Bears had the ball less than 10 minutes in the first half – and scored 56 points with only one defensive touchdown. For UB, it was like trying to guard the Jamaican sprint team.
Turning Point: When Art Briles left Houston to coach Bears and turned this downtrodden program into an offensive juggernaut.
Player of the Game: Heisman candidate Lache Seastrunk went off for 150 yards and three touchdowns in the first half alone. His presence makes the Bears a definite Big 12 title contender.
UB Player of the Game: Alex Neutz caught deep balls down the middle, deep balls down the sidelines and a few on the shorter side and totaled six for 197. The Bears had no defense for him in single coverage.
Stat Check: Baylor had 501 yards of offense at the half. It could have been more but LB Bryce Hager had the audacity to return a fumble 91 yards for a touchdown.
In the House: There were 39,126 at Floyd Casey Stadium.
What It Means: UB’s right where everybody expected it to be – 0-2 heading into the more civil part of the schedule.
