One for the Record Books

It seems like during every game Baylor plays in recent memory, a question arises. Is this one a record-breaker? How many yards did we get? How many yards did we hold them to?

Especially in the past few years, the Bears have been particularly adept at breaking records, whether it's airing out bombs, racking up points, or WildBearing down the field.

Luckily, our fine friends at the NCAA keep track of these things and annually update the list that they keep on their website. It turns out that Baylor is mentioned in 158 of these. However, some of them are not that... exciting... or ones that you want to remember. Like Most Points Scored by a Losing Team (Regulation) 63—Baylor vs. West Virginia (70), Sept. 29, 2012.

Below, you'll find an expurgated version of what the NCAA has, omitting the "anti-records" like the one above, and a lot of the so-and-so-did-this-the-best-in-this-year things. I did, however, leave in the punting records. #neverForgetThe00s
