Halftime in Arlington: Baylor 49, Texas Tech 21

If you bet the "Under" on this game, you've basically already lost.

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

After one of the wildest first halves in recent history, your Baylor Bears go into halftime up 28 on the Texas Tech Red Raiders.  The teams combined for 820 yards of total offense, 70 points, 27 first downs, and a boatload of highlight plays.

The somewhat disappointing end to the half, with a Seth Russell interception that probably shouldn't have been one on a drive that Baylor didn't seem very interested in conducting, marred what was otherwise a pretty incredible pair of quarters, at least for the offense.  The defense gave up several big plays and probably should have given up several more had Texas Tech's receivers caught passes thrown their way.  Altogether, it's about what most probably expected from this game, except that Baylor is winning by 4 TDs.

Individual Stats:

Seth Russell -- 11/16 for 251 and 3 TDs, 1 INT (not really), 10 carries for 77 yards, 2 TDs
Shock Linwood -- 12 carries for 169 yards, 2 TDs
Jay Lee -- 3 catches for 120 yards
Corey Coleman -- 5 catches for 89 yards, 2 TDs
