Robert Griffi n III, the fi rst reigning Heisman Trophy winner to appear in the
Alamo Bowl, leads Baylor past Washington in a record-setting shootout.
No. 12 Baylor pulled out a thrilling victory in the 2011
Valero Alamo Bowl, beating Washington 67-56 in the
highest-scoring regulation bowl game in college
football history. The teams also combined to set a bowl record
for total offense (1,377) in a game that saw fi ve lead changes
and three touchdowns of 50 yards or longer.
In true Baylor fashion, the Bears jumped on top early. Robert
Griffi n III, the fi rst reigning Heisman Trophy winner to appear in
the Valero Alamo Bowl, put the Bears on top 21-7 late in the fi rst
quarter with a 24-yard touchdown run that dazzled the crowd of
65,256. On the play, Griffi n III was in the grasp of several Husky
defenders before breaking free for the touchdown.
Not to be outdone, Washington quarterback Keith Price led the
Huskies to 28 straight points in the second quarter. Baylor tacked
on a 42-yard fi eld goal as time expired to cut the Husky lead to
35-24 at halftime. Price struck again on the second play of the
second half with an 80-yard touchdown pass to Jermaine Kearse
that put Washington on top 42-24.
Griffi n III and the Bears quickly responded and took control of the third quarter. Jarred Salubi
capped off a 10-play, 80-yard drive with a seven-yard touchdown run before Terrance Ganaway
got in on the scoring spree. Ganaway broke off a record 89-yard touchdown run on the next
drive and would add a pair of one-yard touchdown runs later in the quarter to put the Bears on
top 53-49 heading into the fi nal quarter.
Price again took his turn to start the fourth quarter, scoring his third rushing touchdown of
the game with 9:40 to play in the game and give the Huskies a 56-53 lead. Baylor responded,
however, with two more TD runs from Ganaway to put the game away by a fi nal margin of 67-56.
The game marked the fi nal collegiate appearance for Griffi n III, who completed 24-of-33
passes for 295 yards and a touchdown, while adding a score on the ground. It was Ganaway
and Price, however, who stole the spotlight. Ganaway rushed for 200 yards and a Valero Alamo
Bowl-record fi ve touchdowns on his way to being named Offensive MVP.
Price fi nished the game by passing for Valero Alamo Bowl records of 438 yards and four
touchdowns. With his three scores on the ground, he also set a new NCAA Bowl Record by
accounting for seven touchdowns in the game.
