                      === Baylor steamrolls Iowa State ===
 Waco,  TX ( -  Bryce Petty threw for 343 yards and a pair of
 first  half touchdowns  as No. 12 Baylor routed the Iowa State Cyclones, 71-7,
 on homecoming at Floyd Casey Stadium.
 Petty  completed 23-of-31 before building a comfortable lead and giving way to
 Seth Russell, who went 5-of-7 for 39 yards. Both quarterbacks ran for a score.
 Lache Seastrunk ran for 112 yards and two touchdowns and Antwan Goodley hauled
 in 11 catches for 182 yards and two scores.
 The  Bears (6-0, 3-0 Big 12), who cracked the 70-point mark for the fifth time
 this season, gained 715 yards of total offense while holding ISU to just 173.
 "I think we have had confidence in those guys all along. You get eight
 starters back from a team that held the Pac-12 South Division champs to 19
 points in their own backyard is pretty impressive," Baylor head coach Art
 Briles said of his defensive unit.
 Baylor is 6-0 for the sixth time in program history and first time since 1980.
 Sam  B.  Richardson and  Grant Rohach  split time under  center for Iowa State
 (1-5, 0-3) with minimal success. Richardson completed 7-of-14 for 68 yards and
 an  interception,  while Rohach went 8-for-13  for 65 yards, a touchdown and a
 "You don't have to tell them much," Iowa State coach Paul Rhoads said. "They
 know they just got whipped and I know I just got whipped."
 Baylor never get ISU a chance, scoring twice in the early going. Petty threw a
 fade  to Goodley for a 4-yard touchdown at the 9:28 mark of the first, and one
 minute  later Seastrunk  took  it  in from  three  yards  out following  Aaron
 Wimberly's fumble, which put Baylor at the ISU 29. Petty found Tevin Reese for
 26 yards prior to the score.
 Aaron  Jones  kicked field  goals of  22 and 21  yards on  the next two Baylor
 drives,  but the Cyclones  could not move the ball on the Bears, who came into
 the contest ranked 24th in the nation in yards given up.
 A  48-yard scamper by  Seastrunk set up his 2-yard score a play later and late
 in  the  half, Baylor converted on  4th-and-6 for a touchdown when Petty found
 Goodley for a 36-yard pitch and catch.
 The  Cyclones  then punted and Baylor  started with 27 seconds left, which was
 too  much  time  for  Petty  and  the  high-powered  offense.  Three  straight
 completions  to Goodley  put the  Bears in  Jones' field  goal range,  and the
 senior drilled a 51-yarder as time expired.
 Halftime  adjustments wouldn't matter, as Iowa State punted on its first drive
 and Baylor surged right down the field. Petty called his own number and scored
 on a quarterback keeper from six yards out for a 44-0 edge.
 The  Bears also  got  contributions from  special  teams in  the  form of  two
 touchdowns,  a 52-yard punt return by Levi Norwood late in the third and a 97-
 yard Corey Coleman kick return with 34 seconds in the game.
 Russell's  40-yard touchdown  run up the middle gave Baylor a 58-0 lead. Devin
 Chafin  took a handoff and scored from 21 yards out with 3:48 remaining before
 ISU  finally broke  through with a score. With Rohach under center, DeVondrick
 Neely ran free and caught a 27-yard touchdown pass to prevent the shutout.
