Now that 2013 is actually upon us, I decided to take a look back at the top moments from the year that was in 2012. This list is confined to January 1 through December 31, so the 2011 football season is out, despite how awesome it was.

Because it never gets old watching Baylor demolish one of the same schools that reportedly nixed our inclusion in the Pac16-that-almost-was two years ago. And winning bowl games is nice, too, of course.

Holiday Bowl Recap

Good read, not only on the Holiday Bowl, but on the state of Baylor football in general. Amazing how far this program has come.

The Baylor Bears are the 2012 Holiday Bowl Champs

After going up 35-10 at the half, Baylor salted away a rout in the second, finishing the game with a 49-19 (as it should be) victory over the UCLA Bruins. Everything went right for the Bears tonight in an absolutely dominant win across the board.

Halftime: Baylor 35, UCLA 10

The first half could not have gone better for Baylor absent Christ himself returning at the half with a chorus of angels behind him and all believers ascending into Heaven. The defense is playing its best game of the season, the offense is rolling, and the world is seeing what the Bears are all about.
