Ease with which No. 12 Baylor moves impresses ISU

AP Sports Writer

---- — WACO, Texas (AP) — Iowa State coach Paul Rhoads is impressed with more than just all the offense for 12th-ranked Baylor.

Rhoads says there is just a relative ease with how the Bears "accomplish all these absurd numbers."

The Cyclones will be at Baylor on Saturday night. The Bears have won nine games in a row, one short of matching the 76-year-old school record.

The Bears are the nation's most productive offense, averaging 715 total yards and 63 points a game.

And those are updated numbers after Baylor was held to 451 yards and had to score two touchdowns in the fourth quarter to win 35-25 at Kansas State in the Bears' first road game last Saturday. That was 241 yards and 34 points below their previous season-low totals.
