THE RUNDOWN
WACO, Texas (AP) - Bryce Petty just needed to get Baylor home to put the Bears back on their point-a-minute pace.

Petty threw for 343 yards and two touchdowns, Antwan Goodley had 182 yards receiving and two scores, and No. 12 Baylor tied a school record with its 10th straight win, beating Iowa State 71-7 on Saturday night.

The Bears, who came in averaging 70.5 points in four home games but were slowed in a come-from-behind win at Kansas State last week, led 37-0 at halftime and narrowly missed their first shutout win in the Big 12.

The Bears (6-0, 3-0 Big 12) had their nation-leading 33rd straight game of at least 400 yards by halftime and finished with 714 - their fourth game this season with at least 700 yards.

HIGHLIGHTS
• With 714 yards of total offense in the game, the Bears have had at least 400 yards of total offense in 33 straight games dating back to Dec. 29, 2011 -- the 33-game streak is the nation's longest active streak (Texas A&M is next closest at 19 straight entering the day).
• Baylor's 714 yards of total offense rank fifth all-time in single-game history -- Baylor has four such games this season and had two total prior to 2013.
• Baylor has four 70-point game this season -- prior to 2013, Baylor had three such games in its 111 years of football.
• Baylor's 174 total yards given up are the fewest since it has given up since allowing 172 to Arkansas State on Sept. 8, 2001. QB Bryce Petty completed 23-of-31 passes for 342 yards and 2 TDs, and he rushed for his 5th TD of the year. He's thrown for 300+ yards and 2+ TDs in all six career starts.
• WR Antwan Goodley had a 4-yard TD catch in the 1st quarter and a 36-yard TD catch in the 2nd quarter -- he now has 8 TD receptions on the season after entering the year with 2 TD catches in 24 career games played. His 8 TDs on the season are tied for 6th-most in a season in Baylor history.
• Goodley had a career-high 11 receptions, tying the 9th-most in a game in program history.
• Goodley (career-high 182 yards -- 9th-best in BU history) had his 5th career game with 100+ receiving yards, tying him with Bruce Davis for 8th-most in BU history.
• IR Tevin Reese had his 11th career 100-yard receiving game, passing Gerald McNeil and Reggie Newhouse for sole possession of 3rd-most in program history.
• Goodley extended his streak to 7 consecutive games with a receiving TD, but Reese's streak was snapped at 7 games.
• RB Lache Seastrunk (18 carries, 112 yards, 2 TDs) has rushed for 100+ yards in 10 of his last 11 games.
• Seastrunk had 2 rushing touchdowns to give him 17 for his career -- he's one rushing TD shy of cracking Baylor's career top 10.

TOP QUOTE
"It's a huge accomplishment for us. I mean, before the season we said, `six after six,' and that was our goal. It is our expectation and that is our goal but at the same time when you go to a bowl it's a big deal it doesn't matter what bowl it is -- the season doesn't stop here. We are going to keep doing what we need to do. Our goal, my goal is Pasadena, a far out-stretched dream I guess for a lot of people, but not for us. We know we're that good." - Baylor QB Bryce Petty

WHAT'S NEXT
Baylor heads to Lawrence, Kan., to take on Kansas Saturday (Oct. 26) at 6 p.m. CT on ESPNU.
