Baylor sophomore WR Ishmael Zamora caught eight passes for 102 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 24-21 loss to West Virginia.

Zamora hauled in a 43-yard touchdown pass in the closing minutes of the fourth quarter to draw Baylor to within 24-21, but they would not score again in the contest. The 6-foot-4, 220-pound sophomore has been hot of late, catching 20 passes for 257 yards and a pair of scores these past two weekends.
Dec 3 - 7:41 PM

Baylor freshman QB Zach Smith completed 15-of-31 passes for 244 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Saturday's 24-21 loss to West Virginia.

Baylor held a 14-10 lead at halftime, but West Virginia would score twice in the second half to take the lead. Smith hooked up with Ishmael Zamora on a beautiful 43-yard strike down the left sideline with 2:50 remaining in the contest to pull the Bears to within 24-21, but he would fumble on a potential game-tying/game-winning drive with under a minute remaining to officially erase any chance of a late comeback win. The loss was Baylor's sixth in a row. In four starts this season, Smith has thrown nine touchdowns against six interceptions.

Baylor redshirt sophomore RB Terence Williams (knee) is questionable for this weekend’s game against West Virginia.

He suffered the injury a few weeks ago against Oklahoma and isn't out of the woods yet. Williams, a former national top-300 recruit, ran for 556 yards in nine games as redshirt freshman in 2015. The 6-foot-2, 225-pounder has 855 yards and 10 scores this year.

Baylor C Kyle Fuller accepted an invitation to the Reese's Senior Bowl.

The 6-foot-5, 310-pounder is a two-time All-Big 12 honoree a three-year starter. Last season, Fuller was named second-team All-Big 12 by the Associated Press. This summer, he found his name on the Rimington Trophy watch list.

Baylor sophomore WR Ishmael Zamora caught 12 balls for 155 yards and a touchdown in last Friday's loss to Texas Tech.

The Bears' offense looked fine -- Terence Williams had 147 rushing yards and KD Cannon had a 12-132-2 line -- but Baylor was undone by Pat Mahomes' 586 passing yards. Zamora caught six balls or more in all four November games. We'll see how he does in a new month, as Baylor gets West Virginia on Saturday, a few days after the calendar flips.

Former Baylor QB Jarrett Stidham is visiting Auburn on Tuesday.

Stidham has been linked to Auburn, Florida and Texas A&M. He spent one season at Baylor before leaving prior to the season following the issues in the Baylor athletic department followed by the firing of Art Briles. Stidham sat out the 2016 season in terms of the FBS level, so he might be eligible to play immediately for whatever program picks him up. He hopes to make that decision this winter.

Baylor redshirt freshman WR Blake Lynch will not play in Baylor's bowl game due to a broken finger.

Lynch broke his finger in Friday's loss to Texas Tech. Per interim HC Jim Grobe, the 6-foot-3, 210-pound wideout has already undergone surgery to repair the injury. Lynch -- ESPN 300's No. 185 recruit for the 2015 cycle -- finishes up his redshirt freshman campaign having caught 34 passes for 404 yards and three touchdowns.

Baylor interim head coach Jim Grobe says he doesn’t plan to coach again after this season.

You do get this sense in watching the listless Bears, a team led by a staff that appeared to check out amidst all the drama roughly six weeks ago. Grobe may be wondering why he agreed to take the thankless one-year caretaker job following Art Briles' ouster. Baylor is no-doubt wondering why it couldn't find a coach willing to remain interested through the end of the season.
Nov 28 - 3:35 PM

Former Baylor QB Jarrett Stidham and Florida have been in contact, according to 247 Sports' Luke Stampini.

Stidham has also been in contact with Auburn and Texas A&M and will likely make his decision in December in order to enroll in January. The former coveted recruit left Baylor during the summer. Florida lost their top quarterback Will Grier to transfer following a suspension and Luke Del Rio started in his place this year before being injured.

Baylor redshirt sophomore RB Terence Williams (knee) rushed for 147 yards and two touchdowns on 23 carries in Friday's loss to Texas Tech.

Williams dinged up his knee against Oklahoma two weekends ago and sat out last Saturday's blowout loss to Iowa State. If he was feeling any ill effects from that injury, it didn't show on the field during Friday's loss. The 6-foot-2, 225-pounder averaged 6.39 YPC with a long run of 57 yards. This was Williams' third 100-yard showing this season. Baylor houses a three-headed monster at running back, but Williams' metaphorical monster head proved to be the largest on Friday, as he received 23 carries to JaMycal Hasty's 14 and Shock Linwood's eight.
Nov 25 - 10:38 PM

Baylor junior WR K.D. Cannon caught 12 passes for 132 yards and two touchdowns in Friday's loss to Texas Tech.

Cannon opened up the contest's scoring via a 53-yard touchdown grab with several minutes gone by in the first quarter. Touchdown No. 2 wouldn't come until 14:42 remained in the game. That nine-yard score would draw Baylor to within 51-35 and made a comeback look reasonably possible for the Bears, but they wouldn't score again in the contest. Cannon is up to 68 catches for 905 yards and 10 touchdowns through 10 games played. Baylor will wrap up their regular-season against West Virginia next weekend.
Nov 25 - 10:31 PM

Baylor interim HC Jim Grobe said that redshirt sophomore RB Terence Williams (knee) should be able to play in Friday's game against Texas Tech.

Williams sat out Saturday's loss to Kansas State with a knee injury initially sustained against Oklahoma on November 12. The 6-foot-2, 225-pound redshirt sophomore has rushed for 708 yards (5.6 YPC) and eight touchdowns in nine games this season. Shock Linwood and JaMycal Hasty would see the majority of work if Williams isn't quite able to regain his health by Friday.

Baylor associate AD Heath Nielsen was arrested following an alleged assault of a reporter after a November 5 loss to TCU.

Per KWTX-TV, Nielsen was arrested three days after the precipitating incident and has been charged with misdemeanor assault with bodily injury. The police report paints a somewhat troubling picture, with reporter James McBride alleging that Nielsen grabbed him by the throat and pushed him back while he was taking an onfield photograph with a Bears player. Nielsen's attorney, Michelle Simpson Tuegel, issued a statement which read, in part: "Mr. Nielsen maintains that he intervened to stop the interview, but he did not grab the complainant's throat. We look forward to vigorously defending Mr. Nielsen and presenting the facts involved in this situation." According to the arrest warrant, security cameras captured the incident in question.

Baylor freshman QB Zach Smith threw for 258 yards, three touchdown and the interceptions in Saturday's loss to Kansas State.

The four-star was making his first career start. It was a wildly uneven afternoon. Smith was impressive in the first half, showing off mobility and a stronger arm than we saw attached to Seth Russell. But Smith melted down amid Bill Snyder's famous halftime adjustments, getting intercepted three times in the second half. With Seth Russell done for the year, Smith is Baylor's quarterback of the present and future.
Nov 19 - 4:31 PM

Baylor redshirt senior QB Seth Russell's surgery to repair a dislocated ankle was successful.

Russell dislocated his left ankle in a loss to Oklahoma last weekend. It required him to be carted off the field. The 6-foot-3, 215-pounder finishes out the regular season having thrown for 2,126 yards (54.7% completions) with a 20/8 TD/INT ratio. Each of his last two seasons have been cut short by health concerns. His recovery timetable remains uncertain at this juncture, but it should be noted that Russell has accepted an invite to the Senior Bowl even with the injury.
