• New Baylor commercial debuts during victory over SMU

    Well that’s a nice way to start the week — first the 59-24 win over SMU in the Baylor football season opener, followed by a day off for Labor Day!

    Speaking of the game… Did you catch the new Baylor commercial during the broadcast?

    I heard a few questions from viewers wondering about some of the scenes, asking who those people were or where the scenes were shot. Click through for a quick rundown after break.

    The commercial’s script, of course, comes from Robert Griffin III’s now-famous Heisman Trophy acceptance speech, beginning with RG3 himself and then transitioning into some Baylor students, faculty and alumni.
