You can't really figure to turn an intermediate pass on the final play of the first half into a long catch-and-run touchdown, especially against a prevent defense.
But, it's Baylor-West Virginia, where defenses decided to not show up.
On the final play of the first half, Baylor's Nick Florence threw to Lanear Sampson. Sampson didn't exactly plow through five tacklers to get to the end zone, he just turned and ran while West Virginia's defensive backs took horrible angles and watched him pass.
That tied the game at 35-35. This isn't exactly Alabama-LSU happening in Morgantown.
Take West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith's first half line: 26-for-28, 288 yards and four touchdowns. Most players won't have a full game that good, much less one half.
