Halftime in Arlington: Baylor Bears 28, Texas Tech 17

New, 378 comments

The Baylor defense has struggled mightily to contain Pat Mahomes and the Red Raider offense, but the Bears still lead 28-17 at the half.

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

So ... after sputtering early, the Baylor offense finished the half with right at 300 yards of total offense, yards needed to keep up with Texas Tech, who had 361.  Baylor's secondary has had fits covering Jakeem Grant, in particular, and although he missed the last series of the half, he should return.  How Baylor responds and adjusts to a Terrell Burt vs. Grant matchup that clearly isn't working will be something to watch in the second half.

In other games important to us, Ole Miss leads MSU 7-3 at the half, FSU leads unranked Florida 21-16 despite three Jameis Winston interceptions, and Minnesota leads Wisconsin 17-13 .  The third quarter just started in that game.
