Aggies win final Battle of Brazos
Ryan Tannehill threw for 415 yards and a career-high six touchdowns and Ryan Swope caught four of them to lead No. 21 Texas A&M to a 55-28 win over No. 20 Baylor on Saturday.
The Bears got within six points after a touchdown run by Terrance Ganaway in third quarter before the Aggies scored 21 straight to take a 55-28 lead with about six minutes remaining.
Swope's fourth touchdown - his second 68-yard reception of the game - was the first in that span. He finished with 206 yards receiving and also had a 68-yard TD reception in the second quarter. He also scored on receptions of 8 and 5 yards.
Baylor star quarterback Robert Griffin III threw for a school-record 430 yards and three touchdowns, but the Bears had trouble running the ball and were outgained 266-50 on the ground.
Griffin is the third quarterback this season to set a school record against the Aggies' worst-in-the-nation pass defense.
