WACO, Texas — Terrance Ganaway is setting records while running in the shadows of a Heisman Trophy hopeful.
If the 6-foot, 240-pound senior running back with surprising speed wasn't in the same backfield with Robert Griffin III, people outside of Baylor might actually know who is.
Ganaway says that's just OK with him. Plus, he says he and Griffin are both team players — and that the record-setting quarterback should have all the hype.
Ganaway has a Big 12-leading 1,195 yards rushing for the 19th-ranked Bears (8-3, 5-3 Big 12). He needs only 24 yards in the regular season finale Saturday at home against Texas to set a new single-season school record. His 14 rushing touchdowns are already a school record.
Griffin calls Ganaway the most important piece to the offense.
