UW's two-minute drill
Facts and figures from Alamo Bowl
Player of the game
Baylor running back Terrance Ganaway stole the spotlight from the quarterbacks with 200 yards and five touchdowns. With Washington focusing on Robert Griffin III and his passing, the Bears went to Ganaway in the late going and he got it done as he had 167 yards on 12 carries in the second half.
Play of the game
You could pick either of two runs by the quarterbacks — an electric 24-yard run through traffic by Griffin in the first quarter, or an equally electric 15-yard touchdown run by UW's Keith Price in the second quarter.
After UW took a 42-24 lead early in the third quarter, the Bears went to the running game and outscored the Huskies 29-7 the rest of the quarter to regain a little control. Still, it wasn't over until a UW fourth-down pass went incomplete with 3:20 left and the Huskies trailing 60-56.
"There were some chances for us to even extend the (lead) more and we just couldn't do it, just couldn't take advantage of it, so back to the drawing board on that end." — UW coach Steve Sarkisian, lamenting that the Huskies couldn't build on their 42-24 third-quarter lead.
Washington — LB Princeton Fuimaono left in the first half with an apparent shoulder injury and did not return.
Who needs a Heisman
The Bears had three different players rush for more than 100 yards, and none of them won the Heisman. Ganaway led with 200 yards on 21 carries while Jarred Salubi (five carries) and Tevin Reese (two carries) each had 101 yards.
