Baylor Vs. Washington Final Score, 2011 Alamo Bowl: Out With A Bang

In what could be Robert Griffin III's final game, the Baylor Bears and Washington Huskies combined to break the all-time bowl yardage record, putting up 1,399*. The score was 67-56 in favor of Baylor, coming just two shy of the bowl points record set in 2001. If not for that damn missed field goal ...

Also falling: the all-time bowl touchdowns record, with 17 passing 16.

Listing all the offensive players with big box score evenings would take forever, so here are just a few: Baylor back Terrance Ganaway put up five touchdowns and 199 yards rushing. Griffin contributed 350 total yards, with Jarred Salubi and Tevin Reese each rushing for triple digits.

On UW's side, Keith Price was magnificent, throwing for 438 and running for 39 on his way to seven touchdowns. Chris Polk rushed for 147, and Jermaine Kearse caught 198. This could go on for a long time, you see.

* That also comes within about 150 yards of the all-time record for any game, bowl or otherwise. Something pretty neat happened here.
