Texas Tech Falls to Baylor 66-42; Suffer First Losing Season since 1992

Robert Snyder, 1340 The Fan

Nick Florence threw two long touchdown passes in relief for the injured Heisman Trophy candidate Robert Griffin was knocked out of the game as No. 21 Baylor defeated Texas Tech 66-42 at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, TX Saturday night.

The Bears (8-3, 5-3 Big 12) played much of the the second half without Griffin who left the game early in the third quarter with an apparent leg injury on a running play.

Baylor set a school record for most points in a conference game as they collected their fourth straight victory in conference play and surpassing their win total from last season (7-6). Terrance Ganaway rushed 42 times for 246 yards and two touchdowns, giving him a school-record 14.

Seth Doege led Texas Tech in passing going 41-55 for 355 yards with three touchdowns and two picks. Jacob Karam, normally the backup quarterback, wore a different jersey number and threw a 44 yard touchdown pass to Darrin Moore.

Texas Tech (5-7, 2-7) finished with its first losing record since 1992 when Spike Dykes was head coach in Lubbock.
