The Baylor Faithful!

98 total points, eight lead changes, 10 touchdowns and 1,030 yards were just some of the big numbers in the 107th match-up between the #14 TCU Horned Frogs and Baylor Bears.

Some may have expected the game to be close; few would have believed the scores to be so high.

According to ESPN Stats & Information, "TCU and Baylor combined for 98 points. In the previous 106 meetings between the teams, the schools had never combined for more than 77 points (Baylor won 56-21 in 1983). The 48 points scored by TCU were the most in series history for the Horned Frogs (47 points in 1968)."

Welcome to College Football 2011 and the first Saturday has yet to kickoff!

The temperature was hot in Waco, Texas, where it was reported to have reached 100° F at Floyd Casey stadium. The Baylor Bears were led by veteran quarterback #10 Robert Griffin III, wide-receiver #1 Kendall Wright and running-back #24 Terrance Ganaway to upset the TCU Horned Frogs.

However, the victory did not come as easily as the Bears would have liked going into the fourth quarter.
