Before the 10th-ranked Bears beat SMU 45-0 in their first game at McLane Stadium on Sunday night, a 9 1/2-foot bronze statue of Robert Griffin III was unveiled. The statue of Baylor's only Heisman Trophy winner is in a plaza between the stadium and the Brazos River, where some fans arrived by boat for the game - and others dived in for relief from temperatures in the mid-90s. ''When you come to Waco, you're going to see the statue of Judge Baylor, Coach (Grant) Teaff and Robert Griffin III.'' Griffin won the Heisman Trophy in 2011, the same season Baylor won 10 games for the first time since its outright 1980 Southwest Conference title.

Jameis Winston said No. 1 Florida State did a little celebrating in the locker room after leaving the field seemingly less than thrilled with a closer-than-expected win over Oklahoma State. ''There is no reason to get upset because I feel like we needed a great game,'' Winston, the Heisman Trophy winner, said after throwing for 370 yards and running 28 yards for a score Saturday night. ''And Oklahoma State was outstanding out there. They never gave up.'' The Seminoles (1-0), who tied a school record with their 17th consecutive victory, had the nation's top passing defense last year and looked the part early in building a 17-0 lead in the $1.2 billion home of the Dallas Cowboys.
