Iowa State figured some things out in the second half, but that only does so much for you when you're down 35-7 at half.
Baylor's rolling once again. The offense isn't quite at last year's level, but the defense is better despite a decent amount of turnover. Stiffer tests await soon enough, but we shouldn't overlook the fact that a) Iowa State nearly beat Kansas State and did beat Iowa, and b) Baylor was up 35-7 at half in Ames. That's a top-10 caliber result right there.
Oh yeah, and...
