Alamo Bowl 2011: Baylor Wins Thrilling Shootout Over Washington, 67-56

Remember the Alamo. Bowl.

123 total points, 1397 yards and 17 touchdowns later, the Baylor Bears beat the Washington Huskies 67-56 in a game where defense did not exist.

Washington entered the second half with a 34-24 lead, but Baylor's offense exploded for 45 points in the third and fourth quarters. Baylor running back Terrance Ganaway rushed for 200 yards on 21 attempts with 5 touchdowns. The Bears had three players with over 100 rushing yards.

Huskies quarterback Keith Price arguably out-played Robert Griffin III. Price was responsible for seven of the Huskies' eight touchdowns. He passed for four and rushed for three. Jermaine Kearse hauled in one of Price's touchdown passes — in his final collegiate game, Kearse caught five passes for 198 yards. Running back Chris Polk also had a quiet 147 rushing yards on 30 carries.

Baylor secured the game after the Huskies failed to convert on a 4th-and-8 situation at Baylor's 39-yard line with under five minutes to go.
