Baylor University football won quite a game yesterday in Ames, Iowa, playing against Iowa State University. The Bears, ranked #7 were prepared and ready to play the Cyclones in ISU’s home stadium. Quarterback Bryce Petty played a great game throwing one touchdown and 336 yards with one of his greatest plays pictured above: his hurdle over an ISU player while he ran for a touchdown. The pair between Antwan Goodley and Corey Coleman after their injuries in past games contributed to Petty’s excellent performance throughout the night. The two receivers combined had one touchdown, 18 catches and 268 yards total. As the Bears reached 14-7, ISU quarterback Sam Richardson threw an interception that gave Baylor a touchdown and led 21-7 with over half the second quarter still left. Shock Linwood ran a 24-yard touchdown and Johnny Jefferson followed with a 12-yard touchdown, leaving the score at 35-7 at halftime.
The Cyclones exploded in the beginning of the third quarter with Richardson throwing a 47 yard touchdown but then tried an onside kick that sailed out of bounds in which Linwood ran another touchdown, making the score 42-14. Cyclones’ Ted Ecby had a 51-yard touchdown catch, but the team couldn’t keep up with the explosive Bears. Baylor had 601 total offensive yards in the game with the final score at 49-28. Coach Art Briles commented on the game saying, “It’s tough to win on the road. Iowa State is a good football team. We
did what we had to do. We’re not happy, we’re not patting each other on
the back or saying were the best team around. We did a workman-like job
tonight and took care of business in an environment that wanted to beat
us.” The Bears will play the University of Texas on October 4th at 2:30 pm CT in Austin.
