Baylor's preposterous offensive numbers were supposed to go down once Big 12 play started.

Not yet.

The high-flying Bears scored a season-high 73 points in a 31-point blowout of West Virginia on Saturday night. The Bears scored 56 points in the first half, broke a Big 12 record with 864 yards - including 172 yards rushing by Lache Seastrunk in just two quarters - and had eight TDs rushing.

Baylor has now scored 69, 70, 70 and 73 points en route to a 4-0 start. Its 70.5 points per game is far and away the nation's best; with Oregon in second at 59.2 points and Florida State in third at 53.6 a game.

The Bears have already scored 39 touchdowns - or one better than national runner-up Notre Dame had in 13 games last season - and they can match Oklahoma in 2008 by scoring at least 60 points in five straight games at Kansas State next week.

Though no one can match Baylor, here are five more memorable statistical performances from the first weekend of October:

HAPPY BIRTHDAY: Cameron Stingily celebrated his 22nd birthday Saturday with the biggest game of any running back in the country. Stingily ran for 266 yards on 37 carries and the Huskies moved to 5-0 with a 38-24 win at Kent State. Stingily had the most yards by a Northern Illinois back since Garrett Wolfe racked up 353 against Ball State in 2006. ``I wanted a win for my birthday,'' Stingily said. ``I didn't know I was going to touch the ball so many times.'' Boston College's Andre Williams also had a huge day, rushing for 263 yards and five TDs in a win over Army.

BERKELEY SHOOTOUT: Washington State's Connor Halliday and Cal's Jared Goff combined for a staggering 1,025 yards passing in a 44-22 win by the Cougars. Halliday put it up 67 times, completing 41 passes for 521 yards and three touchdowns. Goff threw 58 passes for 504 yards following a review that ruled that a 15-yard run by Chris Harper was actually a pass. Halliday's prolific effort helped Washington State score its most points in a league game in a decade. Cal has now lost nine straight to fellow FBS opponents, the longest streak in the nation among BCS schools.

---

GREAT DAY FROM GILBERT: The astonishing two-point conversion from Garrett Gilbert to Jeremy Johnson to force overtime against Rutgers will be remembered long after both graduate from SMU. But that highlight was just one of a number of terrific plays from Gilbert, who had arguably the most productive day of any passer in the nation. He finished 45 of 70 passing for 484 yards and five touchdowns and no picks. Johnson caught 18 of those throws for 217 yards and three scores.

---

THE ANTI-BAYLOR: Louisville's defense continues to sparkle. Through five games, the Cardinals have given up just four touchdowns and a pair of field goals. Louisville thrashed Temple 30-7 on Saturday, maintaining its lead as the nation's leader in scoring defense at 6.8 points a game. Oregon is second at 11.8 points, and the Ducks haven't given up more than 16 points during their current four-game winning streak over BCS-affiliated opponents.

---

EXTRA POINTS: Western Kentucky's Antonio Andrews took over the national lead in rushing with 882 yards after picking up 155 in a 31-10 win over Louisiana-Monroe...Oregon State's Sean Mannion maintained his edge in national passing yards with 2,018 even though the Beavers had a bye. Mannion has a 22-yard lead on Ball State's Keith Wenning and a 25-yard lead on Halliday. Oregon State's opponents next week? Washington State, of course...Arizona State running back Marion Grice has 13 total touchdowns in five games and leads the country with 78 points.
