Robert Griffin III putting on a show
By David Ubben
WACO, Texas -- Nobody would have been surprised if No. 14 TCU erased an 11-point halftime deficit to come back and beat Baylor.
In the third quarter, Robert Griffin III is making sure it won't happen.
On Baylor's first two possessions, he connected on deep touchdown throws of 64 and 42 yards to Lanear Sampson and Terrance Williams, respectively.
Baylor leads 47-23 after the two scores and Griffin is 17-of-20 for 327 yards and a career-high five touchdowns.
This was already a big stage for Griffin to showcase his skill to the nation.
Whatever expectations people had entering tonight's game, Griffin has by now far exceeded them.
And perhaps most interesting? If you didn't already know, Griffin's one of the league's most interesting personalities off the field, too.
