Kansas holds Baylor to only 59 points

Kansas came through with sterling defensive effort on Saturday night, holding No. 6 Baylor to nearly six points below its scoring average as the Bears squeaked by the Jayhawks, 59-14.

Seriously, folks, there really wasn’t much to differentiate this game from every other Baylor domination on the schedule, other than the fact that the score might’ve been much worse if not for several dropped passes in the first half by Bears receivers.

Baylor quarterback Bryce Petty continued to be prolific and highly efficient, completing 20 of 32 passes for 430 yards and three touchdowns in barely three quarters of play. He also added a touchdown on the ground. Baylor ran for 306 yards while accumulating 743 yards of offense, all while letting its foot off the gas for most of the fourth quarter.

Kansas did get some benefit out of this game as Jayhawks head coach Charlie Weis got to see what a great offense looks like up close. But don’t look for his quarterbacks — junior Jake Heaps and freshman Montell Cozart — to morph into Petty any time soon. Between the two of them, they threw for 154 yards on 11 of 33 passing. Otherwise, Kansas was content to run the ball 50 times and run some clock so it could avoid too much embarrassment.

Okay, Baylor. You’ve had your run of it against a very favorable schedule. Now the real test begins. A week from Thursday, Oklahoma comes to town, the same Sooners who just handed Texas Tech its first loss. Take care of business that night and maybe we can start talking about turning BCS dreams into reality.

    If Art Briles does not get calls from USC and any other high profile opening, ADs need to be fired.

    Briles has never coached outside of the state of Texas in his 30+ coaching career. I don’t see him leaving, and from everything I’ve ever heard, he despises the University of Texas. So rule that out.

    I watched KU play the last two weeks vs OU and Baylor. The talent Baylor puts on the field is the best in the league. Seeing both teams up close and personal, don’t expect the Bears to be stopped anytime soon. Don’t expect Coach B to be moving to a University near you anytime soon. The Guy is a West Texas genius who loves the state. He is more likely to go back to sweet water than the dumpster fire in Southern Cal.

    It’s like Baylor and Oregon are playing a different sport when you watch them. The size of the holes they get and how open the receivers are. Yeesh.

    Bring it on OU. Sic ‘em Bears!

    I’m excited to finally see how the Bears to against a quality opponent. A good win here will solidify their place in the Top 5.

    Been a long time comin’…
