Baylor starting QB Bryce Petty was hurt in a dominating win over SMU on Sunday.
The Baylor Bears defeated the SMU Mustangs 45-0 in the last game to feature a top 25 team this weekend.
After scoring only one FG in the first eight minutes of the game, the Bears went on a tear starting at the 6:54 mark – scoring 3 TDs in the span of six minutes. QB Bryce Petty had 3 TDs in the first half – 2 passing, 1 rushing. However, Petty left the game in the second half after suffering a bruise to his back early in the game.
With the team up 31-0 at the half, the Bears were more than capable of managing with backup QB Seth Russel, who led the Bears on a pair of scoring drives of his own in the third quarter.
Baylor’s defense dominated the game, not allowing an offensive play of more than 15 yards and only allowing 67 total yards of offense.
After the game, Bryce Petty commented that his injury was not serious and that he was “already feeling a lot better.”
The Bears are the defending Big Twelve champions, going 8-1 in the conference and 11-2 overall including a 42-52 loss to UCF in the Fiesta Bowl.
