Baylor survives an Alamo shootout, beat Washington 67-56

RG3 didn't put up the stellar stats that we've grown accustomed to see, but he got plenty of support from his teammates. Baylor RB Terrance Ganaway scored 5 TDs as the Bears' offense rolled all night. Keith Price and Chris Polk of Washington didn't go with a whimper, instead they matched every punch Baylor threw at them. Many people thought Baylor would rout the Huskies, which they did on an offensive standpoint, but the Huskies' Price led the Washington offense through the air by throwing 438 yards and 4 TDs. When the score was 60-56, Baylor finally came up with a defensive stop on fourth down to contain the Huskies. When Baylor tried to run the clock down, Ganaway ran for a TD. The Washington offense was stellar as Price outperformed Griffin III, but the defensive struggles of the Dawgs proved to be too great.
