No quit in the Horned Frogs
By David Ubben
WACO, Texas -- Baylor looked in control.
But past failures and a history of losing don't bring much confidence to the Bears' fan base or casual observers.
The big question: Is Baylor due for a collapse?
TCU sandwiched a Bears three-and-out with a pair of touchdown drives and two-point conversions to get within 47-39, making it a one-possession game.
Then, the defense forced another three-and-out to get the ball back.
There's still more than nine minutes to play, and this much appears obvious: 47 points might not be enough to win this game, as hard as it may have been to believe at kickoff.
If Baylor's offense can't wake back up, this could be one more embarrassment for the program.
