Valero Alamo Bowl
No. 12 Baylor Bears (9-3, Big 12)
Washington Huskies (7-5, Pac 12)
San Antonio, TX
9:00 P.M. EST
The last time that we saw Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III he was lifting the Heisman Trophy. After tonight, the next time you see RG3 on a football field could be when he makes his NFL debut. So, college football fans better enjoy tonight -- when Griffin leads No. 12 Baylor against Washington in the Alamo Bowl. Playing in San Antonio, the Alamo Bowl should be a raucous sending off party for Griffin, who is likely to give up his last year of collegiate elligibility and declare for the 2012 NFL Draft.
Baylor enters tonights game as a 10-point in large part due to the combination of Griffin's passing prowess and the Huskies' vulnerability through the air. Washington ranked 116th out of 120 FBS schools against the pass this season. Will the quarterback possessing the game's prettiest deep ball be able to take advantage of this matchup?

"Have You Played Your Last Game In A Baylor Uniform?"
He is asked. "I have no idea," he responds. And he calls the ESPN interrogator "sir" before excusing himself.

He falls to the ground and lays down, face down. But then he pops up and is articulate and confident and just all-around awesome.

Presumably coming from the Baylor band, the Superman theme music can be heard from the Alamodme. One more knee... and...

Griffin takes a knee. One more of those coming.

That Just Happened
@ jdubs88 :
That was awesome! A defensive tackle returning a kickoff AND Michael Dyer-ing it.

Squib kick and big No. 71 comes rushing in to grab football. He fights for extra yards and pops out of pile to keep rumbling ahead. And then he FUMBLES! Baylor recovers. OK. maybe this will do it.

Could We Get An Onsides Kick?
@ amandarykoff :
I know many of you were hoping for overtime, but it's like this game has been played with the OT rules since the start.
