It was also the first time Baylor had held 100 yards in rushing since 1993 vs. TCU (36-74) and under 100 yards passing vs. Rice 3-13 for 74 yards).

Blackshirt dominance

The Nebraska defense hasn't allowed a touchdown since the Colorado State game. Opponents have failed to get into end zone for 10 consecutive quarters.

Reedy impressed

Baylor coach Chuck Reedy says there is probably no better in the country then the Huskers.

"Defensively, they are probably as good as anybody that we have been ond the field against." "Offensively, our fear was that they would line up and mash us with the running game and that's what they did."
