Keith Price just scored again, reaching the ball over the goal line while falling out of bounds, for his seventh total touchdown of the game.
That's running and passing. And it also breaks or ties a UW record set in 1919.
It's 56-53 Washington with more than 9 minutes to play. Still plenty of time for a handful of touchdowns.

In no time, Baylor is back on top.
A five-play, 70-yard drive capped by Terrence Gannaway's fourth rushing touchdown has lifted the Bears over the Huskies, 60-56.
This is the most points ever in regulation in a bowl game. Actually, it already held that distinction before Gannaway's last touchdown.
I just can't imagine UW continuing to match this offensively but that's what Keith Price and the Huskies have continued to do. I would think with some very tired players out there that a bad turnover is coming pretty fast. Hopefully for the Huskies' sake, it'll be Baylor's and not theirs.

The combined 1,299 yards between Baylor and Washington also is a new bowl record.
The most points in a game involving Washington was 120 when UW beat Whitman 120-0 nearly a century ago.

Just got done covering the Husky basketball game tonight and now they are showing the Alamo Bowl on the JumboTron. They've been showing it all night, but there are still a couple hundred people here watching the game.
It's a pretty cool atmosphere.
Obviously, crazy game.

Very cool. Heck, if those people left to go home, they would have missed three or four touchdowns.

Baylor is trying to run out the clock with under 3 minutes remaining after Washington was stopped on fourth down.
Scratch that: It's over. Gannaway just burst up the middle for another long touchdown run to ice this game. It's 67-56 after the PAT.
But there is still 2:28 to play!

Itíll be an Alamo Bowl everyone will remember.
In a game that shattered offensive bowl records, No. 12 Baylor defeated Washington, 67-56 Thursday night in San Antonio, Texas.
Keith Price accounted for seven touchdowns to outstage Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III.
But in the end, it was Baylorís overall offense, including a rushing game that gained nearly 500 yards, that Washington couldnít stop.
Trailing 60-56, in the final minutes, Washington had a chance to go in front but a pass by Price sailed over the head of his intended receiver.
Terrance Ganaway then bolted up the middle for a 43-yard touchdown to ice the game and give Baylor its 10th victory of the season.
Ganaway finished with 200 yards and five touchdowns on 21 carries. He was one of three Baylor running backs who rushed for at least 100 yards.
Both teams combined for a bowl-record 1,397 yards with Baylor racking up 777.
Washington had once last chance to get something going but lost a fumble on a kickoff return by freshman lineman Danny Shelton, who grabbed a short kick, broke a tackle and fought for extra yards.
Price was 23 of 37 for a career-best 438 yards.
Griffin was 24 of 33 for 295 yards. He was sacked four times, three by Josh Shirley.
