Baylor 67 Washington 56 Final

This Thursday, the Baylor Bears (9-3) take on the Washington Huskies (7-5) at the Alamo Bowl in San Antonio, Texas.

The Baylor-Washington game marks one of the signature postseason games of the year as the two conference surprises line up to close out this season.

Both teams bring powerful weapons to the gridiron. Baylor's Robert Griffin III has dominated all season against top notch defenses, winning the Heisman Trophy and stunning the nation. Washington's offense, however, ranks quite potent as well behind the strong running of Chris Polk.

Baylor's passing game will be led by wide receiver Kendall Wright, one of the most talented targets in the south. Nothing seems capable of slowing down this high-octane monster.

Washington has also gotten some great production out of sophomore QB Keith Price. Starting for the first time this season, Price has truly come into his own and will be a threat in the Pac-12 for years to come.

This game will feature two top-notch college squads, both vying for national respect. Baylor head coach Art Briles will be looking for his first bowl win ever while Washington head coach Steve Sarkisian will be looking to snag his second.

RG3 and the Bears are going into the game off a five-game winning streak. Keeping that momentum alive will be a challenge for these coaches from Waco. The Huskies, on the other hand, are looking for new life after just winning one of their last four.

Two unstoppable forces meet tomorrow afternoon. Get ready to see who shows who up in one of top games of the year.
