Alright since I have already started with the Bear I will just keep going with them. But first a bit of history before we return to the Bears vs. Connecticut, they have only played each other one other time….drum roll….last year. Baylor regained the lead in the 4th quarter for only the 2nd time in the game and just like the 3rd quarter relinquished it to a TD run from the wolves.

Griffin had a fine day leading the Bears but his defense just didn’t help him out. He had 208 yrds passing 46 rushing, 3 passing tds and 1 rushing td. Not a bad day at all for the true freshman.

By all accounts the Bears should not have lost this game. They lead in 1st downs, 3down efficiency, passing, TOP and penalties. Even the defense had 2 interceptions to 0 but they could not stop the run. With 225 yards against at 4.9 yrds per carry they Bear defense was toppled and they lost the game.
