In his return this week, Bryce Petty went 15/24 in the first half for 329 yards and 2 TDs. One, an 89-yarder, went to freshman K.D. Cannon, who leads the team now with 5 receptions for 171 yards and the TD. Jay Lee caught the other on a 34-yard pass on third down, and Johnny Jefferson and Shock Linwood have added 3 TDs on the ground.
Things to watch in the second half:
- How long Petty plays. From the sound of Briles' interview, he's probably coming back out.
- How well we run the football against a tired Buffalo defense.
- How the defense plays down the stretch. Holding Buffalo to 78 yards in the first half is good. Can they keep up the heat?
- Can we kick even a little bit?
