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?
