Friday Night Beer: WTF is Up With Baylor?

First of all, what a game between Kansas and South Florida tonight. Early on, it looked like the Jayhawks were set to roll, but the Bulls came out on fire to start the second half. Then suddenly, the Jayhawks caught fire again to tie the game at 34. But down the stretch, South Florida returned a Todd Reesing interception deep into Jayhawk territory, setting up a game winning field goal as the Bulls won 37-34.

I was hoping that FSN would also be showing the Baylor/Washington State game tonight as well, but it turns out that the game was only being carried in Texas and Washington State. (At first, I thought that my cable company had chosen to show the Kansas City Royals instead.) Nevertheless, it was weird watching Baylor score touchdown after touchdown. As I post this, Baylor is up on Washington State 45-17.

That's not a misprint.

Baylor is beating a BCS conference opponent 45-17.

Looks like Art Briles is off to a good start with Baylor.

Of course, the real reason why we couldn't watch Baylor/Washington State is Hurricane Ike. Send your thoughts and prayers south to the folks down in Texas, especially Jeffie Husker of DoubleExtraPoint, who is weathering the storm in Houston. Hope we hear from him tomorrow or Sunday safe and sound.
