QB Robert Griffin III vowed that his Baylor team will not get embarrassed anymore and wanted to use the Kansas game as a way to erase the bad memory of TCU’s beatdown the previous week.
Additionally, Griffin wanted to tried to reassure Baylor fans that the TCU loss was mostly an anomaly or aberration.
“The TCU game (a 45-10 loss) was just a fluke. I was determined and the team was determined not to ever have a showing like that again. To come out here and have a victory like we did today can wipe that game out.”
Robert Griffin was able to do whatever he wanted and whenever he wanted as the junior quarterback passed for 380 yards in a record-setting beat down of the Kansas Jayhawks, 55-7.

The Bears (4-1, 1-0 Big 12) are in a position to make further statements against unranked conference foes, Texas Tech, Colorado and Kansas State.
The junior quarterback was 26 for 36 in the game and ran the football eight times for 64 yards before leaving in the fourth quarter.
Sophomore receiver Josh Gordon had his best game of his young career with a 161 yard performance along with two touchdowns.
