Robert Griffin III made his mark on the early college football season last night, by leading his Baylor Bears to a 50-48 victory over TCU in an instant classic.
Griffin threw for 359 yards and five touchdowns, but what was most impressive was his poise in the pocket.
Griffin completed 21 of 27 passes and while he fumbled late in the game, he was practically flawless in the victory. Griffin's favorite target was Kendall Wright who finished with 12 receptions for 189 yards and two touchdowns, but also went 2 for 2 in passing for 55 yards and touchdown.
The underlying fact in the game is that both defenses didn't show up. If Baylor wants to continue their early success, their defense will need to show up in every game.
Griffin looks to have a monster year. Don't be surprised to see him in New York as a Heisman candidate by year's end.
