On Baylor's next possession, Golden took a screen pass from Aaron Karas and raced 28 yards to score his sixth touchdown of the game. This also set a Baylor scoring record for six in a game, and tied a Big 12 record. Jonathan Golden joins company with Texas' Ricky Williams, Oklahoma's Quentin Griffin, and Colorado's Chris Brown on the Big 12 scoring record.
Coming off its 70-22 drubbing of a week ago, the Bears needed a win like this, and it really did not matter at who's expense it was. The win and the feeling from winning was necessary to have a feeling to compare to the misery after last week's performance.
Aaron Karas started the game and was simply phenomenal - leading the Bears to points on each and every possession he directed. The road began a little rocky when Chedrick Ricks fell down on the opening kickoff, downing the ball at the Baylor 4. On a critical third and long, Karas found a wide open Reggie Newhouse for a 57-yard completion which got the Bears out of the hole. From there, Golden took over with the rushing game, and wound up with his first of six touchdowns when he scored around right end from four yards out - no one touched him.
After the score became 43-0, Coach Steele sent in the reserves and the Bears coasted to the 50-12 win. The Bulldogs scored two touchdowns but the first PAT went wide right. After the second TD, the Bulldogs went for two, but on a scenario that had already bitten them once, the completion into the endzone was disallowed after the receiver was ruled for "illegal touching" after having gone out of bounds prior to the reception.
Now, the Bears hit the road again. This time it's to Mew Mexico to face the Loboes who lost to Air Force, 38-31 in OT.
