Iowa State shuffles QBs in 71-7 loss to Baylor

WACO, Texas (AP) — Iowa State coach Paul Rhoads won't spend much time dwelling on the blowout loss to Baylor.

Instead, he'll pause to consider his next move at quarterback.

Bryce Petty threw for 343 yards and two touchdowns, the Baylor defense came within a minute of its first Big 12 shutout against a shuffling pair of quarterbacks and the No. 12 Bears tied a school record with their 10th straight win, beating Iowa State 71-7 on Saturday night.

Iowa State (1-5, 0-3 Big 12) replaced starter Sam Richardson with redshirt freshman Grant Rohach while Baylor pulled away in the second quarter. Richardson came back in the second half, but it didn't matter much.

The Cyclones had nine first downs and three turnovers, although they spoiled Baylor's shutout with 47 seconds left on a 27-yard pass to DeVondrick Nealy from Rohach, who replaced Richardson again in the second half.

"Neither was the winning edge, and there's 10 other guys out there on the field, too," said Rhoads, adding that he went into the game thinking Rohach would play. "There's a lot that wasn't done. It's not just that quarterback position."

The late Iowa State touchdown opened the door for Baylor (6-0, 3-0) to get its fourth 70-point game of the season when Corey Coleman returned the ensuing kickoff 97 yards — the second special teams score of the game for the Bears.

"We have a complete team," said Petty, who has the Bears off to their best start since 1980 on a winning streak that matches one from 1936-37. "We've got to keep doing it."

Antwan Goodley had 11 catches for 182 yards and two touchdowns, and Lache Seastrunk had 112 yards rushing a week after his streak of 100-yard games ended at eight.

Petty, the nation's leader in passing efficiency, was 23 of 31 without an interception and ran for a touchdown before he and the rest of the starters were pulled early in the fourth quarter with the Bears leading 51-0 on the way to their 17th win in their last 18 home games.
