Huskers Shuck Baylor

By  | 

LINCOLN, Neb. - Nate Swift became Nebraska's career leader
in receptions, and the Cornhuskers contained quarterback Robert
Griffin to beat Baylor 32-20 Saturday.
Swift broke Johnny Rodgers' record on the first of his two
touchdowns. Swift, who had 121 yards in receptions, caught a
career-high 11 passes to increase his four-year total to 147.
That's four more than Rodgers, the 1972 Heisman Trophy winner who
set the record in three years.
Joe Ganz's 9-yard pass to Swift late in the third quarter erased
Baylor's 20-17 halftime lead. The two teamed up for a 53-yarder on
the Huskers' next series to make it 30-20.
Baylor (3-5, 1-3) came in 2-47 in Big 12 road games, including
losses in eight straight. But the Bears gave Nebraska (5-3, 2-2) a
scare, with Griffin always a threat to break a long run. He
finished with 121 yards rushing, and he threw for 134.
