Robert Griffin, his arm unaffected by his sore right knee, threw for 226 yards and three touchdowns before halftime then watched after that as the Bears beat Northwestern State 68-13 Saturday night in their highest-scoring game in 67 years.
After Griffin helped push Baylor (2-1) to its highest-scoring first half in 15 years, Jason Lamb (25 yards) and Chance Casey (66 yards) returned interceptions for touchdowns.
Griffin got hurt when he was tackled hard for no gain on fourth down on the game's opening drive. Even with his knee and lower right leg heavily wrapped, he didn't missed a snap before halftime, when Baylor led 41-10.
Northwestern State (0-4), a Football Championship Subdivision team, drove for a touchdown while Griffin was being tended to on the sideline. Griffin then led Baylor to four touchdowns in an eight-minute span.
