On the opening series of the game, Dalton hit a wide-open Kerley streaking down the middle of the field for a 28-yard score.

After Griffin was stuffed for a 5-yard loss on his first snap and the Bears went three-and-out, Wesley took a handoff over the left side, busted through the line and had a clear path to the end zone on a 49-yard run for a 14-0 lead less than 7 1/2 minutes into the game.

Griffin threw a 53-yard TD pass to Josh Gordon in the third quarter, but was frustrated most of the day by TCU’s stifling defense. Griffin finished 16-of-28 passing for 164 yards and ran 14 times for only 21 yards.

“Our game plan was to keep him in there and not let him get outside or make any big plays with his legs because we all know how fast and dynamic, explosive Robert Griffin is,” defensive end Wayne Daniels said.

“Except for a couple of plays we did that,” said Patterson, the defensive-minded coach.

Kerley had six catches for 69 yards, plus a 45-yard punt return in the second quarter that set TCU up at the Baylor 25 for Luke Shivers’ 2-yard run that made it 35-3. Kerley broke free toward the left sideline after Greg Burks’ crushing block on Mike Hicks, who was flattened when it appeared he might be able to get to Kerley.

Asked about the block, Kerley replied, “I heard it.”
