Big-scoring Baylor: No. 20 Bears roll 70-7 over ULM, 3rd straight game with at least 69 points

Bryce Petty threw for 351 yards with four touchdowns and ran 2 yards for another score as No. 20 Baylor kept piling up the points, beating Louisiana-Monroe 70-7 on Saturday.

The fast-paced Bears (3-0) had seven offensive touchdowns in the 10 drives Petty played. Those TD drives took a total of 6 minutes.

Baylor is the first FBS team since LSU in 1930 to open a season with at least 60 points in three consecutive games, according to STATS. Those Tigers had at least 70 points in each of those games — Baylor scored 69 in its opener before 70 points in each of its last two games.

ULM (2-2), coming off a victory at Wake Forest of the ACC last week, suffered its worst loss since a 73-7 loss at Auburn in 2003.
