Around the Big 12

Robert Griffin led the Baylor Bears to a victory over the Wazzuu, and broke the single game rushing record while he was at it. It was the first time since 1994 that the Bears scored 40+ points two games in a row.

Kansas coughed up a 20-3 lead against the South Florida Bulls Friday night, losing 37-34 on a last second FG. The missus thought the Bulls logo was phallic.

Nevada dominated time of possession against the Missouri, holding the ball for 13 more minutes, but lost to the Tigers 69-17. Apparently the Tigers thought you were supposed to score with the ball.

The Dust Pirates must have been slowed down by the flooded Jones field, as the Red Raiders only scored 43 points against SMU. SMU threw five picks and the Tech gained 693 yards. I didn’t watch this game, but I can’t fathom how they only scored 43 points with those numbers. Michael Crabtree had his typical outstanding game, 8 catches 164 yards and 3 scores.

Iowa State lost to Iowa 17-5. The Cyclones outgained the Hawkeyes (325-244) and had more first downs (18-11). However, ISU went 1-4 on FG attempts and had three picks.

Boone State beat Missouri State 57-13. The Pokes had 3 backs rush for over 130 yards, and all had over 10 yards/carry. After Mizzou State scored a TD with 1:50 left in the game, the Pokes marched downfield to score a TD with 50 seconds left, figuring beating a 1-AA school by 44 instead of 37 was crucial in the polls.

Nebraska beat New Mexico State 38-7.
