Baylor Runs for 645 Yards in Bowl Win

Johnny Jefferson rushed for three touchdowns and a record 299 yards, and No. 18 Baylor ran past No. 10 North Carolina 49-38 in the Russell Athletic Bowl on Tuesday night. Bear in mind (see what I did there) Johnny Jefferson was the third string running back for much of 2015. Baylor is deeper than even Art Briles imagined.

Devin Chafin added 161 yards and a touchdown, and Terence Williams rushed for 97 yards and two touchdowns for the Bears. The Bears played five different players at quarterback and the Tar Heals never caught up. 

Briles improves to 3-7 in bowl games.
