Quickly... CU is 0-6 for only the second time in its history (117 seasons), done previously in 1980 (when the team started 0-7)... The loss is CU’s 10th overall, tying the school record done just one other time (1963-64, the last six of ’63 and first four of ’64)... The loss dropped CU to 17-14 all-time against the Big 12 South (2-10 since 2002)... It was just Baylor’s second road win in 41 tries in Big 12 play...

Firsts: FB Maurice Cantrell and WR Nick Holz made their first career starts... TB Mell Holliday scored his first career touchdown (his 32-yard yard run exceeded the total distance of CU’s four touchdowns this season—all rushes for a total of 6 combined yards—and CU’s last eight dating back to last year’s Missouri game—23 yards total for the eight). TE Riar Geer caught his first career touchdown, the first for QB Bernard Jackson as well; it was CU’s first in 2006.
TB Byron Ellis (8-40-1 TD). And speaking of firsts, it took a long time coming, but Ellis scored his first career touchdown on the 123rd carry of his career (134th touch including receptions).
