WATCH: Baylor WR KD Cannon Gets Bears on the Scoreboard With Beautiful 49-Yard Bomb

After watching Michigan State march down the field and score the Baylor Bears needed to respond. The Spartans defense is pretty tough so falling behind early was not something Art Briles and company wanted to do.

WATCH: Baylor WR Jay Lee Tosses Nice 53-Yard Touchdown to Fellow WR Corey Coleman

Baylor has shown in recent years that it is not afraid to use a little 'trickeration' from time to time in order to make the big play. When trick plays work they are things of beauty, but when they don't--man, it can get ugly. Good thing for fans of the Bears is their team is pretty good at being tricky when they want to be.They proved just that in the first quarter of the Cotton...
