WACO, Texas (AP) – Baylor coach Art Briles knows his young talent on offense is getting some valuable early experience.

The 10th-ranked Bears (1-0) were out of sync on offense in the season opener, based on their own impressive standards. But they still managed to pile up 574 total yards in a 45-0 win over SMU, even with quarterback Bryce Petty playing only the first half hurt and top receiver Antwan Goodley going without a catch in less time.

Davion Hall, Goodley’s primary backup, had seven catches for 86 yards. KD Cannon, another highly touted freshman receiver, caught a 46-yard TD pass.

Briles says the young receivers did exactly what they’ve been doing in practice.

Goodley likely won’t play Saturday night at home against FCS team Northwestern State. Petty is questionable.
