ARLINGTON, Texas, Nov. 26 (UPI) -- Nick Florence replaced an injured Robert Griffin III and threw two long touchdown passes Saturday, helping 20th-ranked Baylor polish off Texas Tech 66-42.

Heisman Trophy candidate Griffin left with an injury after accounting for three touchdowns. He took a shoulder to the head from Texas Tech's Cornelius Douglas on a hit late in the first half that was ruled a personal foul and lay motionless on the field before eventually walking off.

Griffin spent the second half on the sidelines as the Bears (8-3, 5-3 Big 12) won their fourth straight.

Terrance Ganaway rushed for 246 yards and two scores, and Joe Williams returned an interception 90 yards for a touchdown early in the second half for Baylor.

The Red Raiders (5-7, 2-7) lost to the Bears for the first time since 1995.
