Lightning forces second delay, Baylor leads

The Big 12 already had one lightning delay in Manhattan, Kan., earlier Saturday. Baylor's game against Rice in Houston provided a second.

Both delays lasted over an hour, but Baylor and Rice are back at it. The Bears lead 14-3 in the second quarter.

Robert Griffin hit Jerod Monk for a 6-yard touchdown pass in Baylor's first scoring play.

The defense hasn't given up a play longer than 12 yards, but Rice quarterback Nick Fanuzzi has completed 11 of his first 13 passes. TCU embarrassed the Baylor defense last week, but we may not have a great idea of how good the Bears defense is until conference play. Baylor didn't give up a touchdown in its first two wins over Buffalo and Sam Houston State.

Kendall Wright looks like he's back on track, too. He's already caught four passes for 75 yards after being limited to just 10 yards on two catches against the Horned Frogs last week.

Wright's last reception was a 40-yard score to get the Bears on track and up 14.
