I believe I can appropriately sum up the first half of this game in the following bullet points:
- Corey Coleman is the best WR in America (7 catches for 108 yards and 2 TDs, #s 12 and 13 on the season).
- After that opening drive, the defense gave up a grand total of 59 yards and created 3 turnovers, one of which was returned for a TD. Ryan Willis is getting absolutely destroyed now, too. Baylor started bringing in defensive backups with about 3:00 to go in the second quarter.
- THICK. HOMIE. QUAN. (LaQuan McGowan).
- Shock Linwood has 13 carries for 135 yards and 1 TD.
I didn't even say anything about Seth Russell in there. He's been ok, I think, not great. He's made a couple of extremely aggressive throws that could have backfired on him, but haven't. He's 18/27 for 246 yards and 3 TDs, and I'm guessing we won't see much of him in the second half after the first drive or so.
