Baylor Scores 70 Again, Whips ULM

Updated: Saturday, September 21 2013, 11:49 PM CDT

Bryce Petty threw for 351 yards with four touchdowns and ran 2 yards for another score as No. 20 Baylor kept piling up the points, beating Louisiana-Monroe 70-7 on Saturday.

The fast-paced Bears (3-0) had seven offensive touchdowns in the 10 drives Petty played. Those TD drives took a total of 6 minutes.

Baylor is the first FBS team since LSU in 1930 to open a season with at least 60 points in three consecutive games, according to STATS. Those Tigers had at least 70 points in each of those games - Baylor scored 69 in its opener before 70 points in each of its last two games.

By the time Petty put on a baseball cap and was done for the day, after two more touchdowns in the first 3 minutes after halftime, Baylor led 63-7 and already had 583 total yards on 46 plays in only 10 1/2 minutes with the ball.

The Bears finished with 781 total yards, matching the school record they set in their last game, two weeks ago in a 70-13 win over Buffalo.

ULM (2-2), coming off a victory at Wake Forest of the ACC last week, suffered its worst loss since a 73-7 loss at Auburn in 2003.

Including interception returns for TDs by Joe Williams and Terrell Burt, the Bears were up 35-0 after the first quarter. That was already worse than when the Warhawks of the Sun Belt Conference opened their season against another Big 12 team, and lost 34-0 at No. 14 Oklahoma.

Petty, the fourth-year junior who had waited his time behind Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III and record-setting Nick Florence, completed 18 of 27 passes. He has thrown for at least 325 yards in all three of his starts, and has 1,001 yards passing.

Lache Seastrunk ran 10 times for 156 yards, including a 75-yard TD sprint down the right sideline in front of the ULM bench only 17 seconds into the second half. It was his seventh consecutive 100-yard rushing game, extending his school record and the nation's longest active streak.

Based on data available since 1996, STATS said Baylor was the first team to score at least 28 points in the first quarter in three consecutive games.

The only other FBS or FCS team since 1996 with 28 points or more in the first quarter in any three games in the same season was Oklahoma in 2008, when the Sooners had Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Sam Bradford and running back DeMarco Murray. That team had five consecutive games with at least 60 points during the middle of the season.

Baylor has its own impressive pair with Petty and Seastrunk, along with big-play threats Tevin Reese and Antwan Goodley, who came in as the only Big 12 receivers averaging 100 yards and maintained that average.

Goodley had five catches for 156 yards and two touchdowns, including a 63-yard score on Baylor's opening drive when Petty found him wide open streaking behind the ULM secondary. Reese (6 catches, 123 yards) got past the defenders on the second drive for a 47-yard TD.

Goodley had a 65-yard TD catch in the second quarter to make it 42-0.

Kolton Browning, the fourth-year ULM starter, completed 17 of 41 passes for 219 yards and a touchdown with the two picks returned for scores. Browning scrambled on a fourth-down play in the second quarter before hitting tight end Harley Scioneaux for a 9-yard TD. Browning ran 10 times for 43 yards.

Baylor backup quarterback Set Russell completed 7 of 9 passes for 119 yards, including a 65-yard TD to Levi Norwood.
