Baylor 66, Texas Southern 7

Associated Press

WACO, Texas - Abram Smith and Tristan Ebner both rushed for more than 100 yards in the first half, and Baylor scored touchdowns on its first seven possessions in a 66-7 victory over Texas Southern.

Gerry Bohanon was 16-for-21 passing for 240 yards and three touchdowns and ran for two scores for the Bears (2-0). Baylor outgained Texas Southern 458-52 in the first half and 714-283 overall in matching its win total from last season, when the Bears were 2-7.

Smith ran for 126 yards and two touchdowns on 12 carries, and Ebner added 125 yards on 10 attempts, the second straight week both eclipsed the century mark. Tyquan Thornton led Baylor with five catches for 103 yards and two touchdowns, and Ebner added 70 yards and a score on four catches.

Before last week's win against Texas State, Baylor hadn't had two 100-yard rushers in a single game since the 2018 season opener against Abilene Christian.

Jalen Brown was 7 of 12 for 96 yards passing for lead Texas Southern (0-2).
