WACO, Texas (AP) Bryce Petty took a bruising shot to his lower back on No. 10 Baylor's first offensive drive in its new riverfront stadium.
The reigning Big 12 offensive player of the year then moved gingerly at times, often grabbing at his back and side between plays the rest of the first half.
Petty still managed to have a big impact in the impressive debut of McLane Stadium, accounting for three touchdowns in a 45-0 victory over SMU on Sunday night. He did not play in the second half.
