Baylor (and TCU) finally stop fireworks
By David Ubben
WACO, Texas -- Calling a football game a track meet is nothing new, but with the long touchdowns and even longer kick returns by both TCU and Baylor, Friday night's game at Floyd Casey Stadium looked about as similar as football can get.
After a missed field goal by TCU kicker Ross Evans, it's finally slowed down a bit.
The two teams scored on six consecutive possessions, but that streak ended with Baylor on top, 27-23 midway through the second quarter.
It's early, though, and with the way these defenses are playing, don't be surprised if another streak gets started before the night is over.
