04/30/2012 - In emphasizing defense at the draft, the Jets reconfirmed their faith in running back Shonn Greene's ability to handle a heavy workload as the lead back in a "ground-and-pound" approach. The Jets added offensive depth by selecting Baylor running back Terrance Ganaway and his teammate, guard Robert T. Griffin, with consecutive picks in the sixth round. Ganaway led the Big 12 in rushing (1,547 yards) and capped a monstrous senior season by rushing for 200 yards and five touchdowns in the Alamo Bowl. - The Sports Xchange

03/22/2012 - Baylor Pro Day: Not to be lost in the day's events was the impressive performance by running back Terrance Ganaway, who ran his 40-yard dash times in the low 4.5's after running a 4.65 at the Combine. He also lifted 225-pounds 22 times on the bench and looked smooth catching the ball. After entering the season as an undrafted free agent prospect, Ganaway could be a top-125 draft pick next month. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

01/26/2012 - 2012 SENIOR BOWL THURSDAY: RB Terrance Ganaway, Baylor: At 5-11 and 241 pounds, Ganaway has the bruising size and natural power to work well between the tackles. But if he hopes to see playing time at the next level, he must improve his blocking. Ganaway has struggled in practice this week in pass protection drills, showing poor habits and inexperience. He routinely drops his helmet and leaves his feet, allowing pass rushers to brush by him and get to the pocket. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

01/04/2012 - 2012 SENIOR BOWL INVITE: Ganaway was a first team All-Big 12 selection in 2011 by both the AP and league coaches. He capped off the Bears' terrific 10-win season by claiming MVP honors in the Alamo Bowl after totaling 200 rushing yards and five touchdowns. The DeKalb, Texas native set single-season school records this season with 1,547 rushing yards, 21 rushing touchdowns, 119 rushing yards per game average, and three 200-yard rushing games. He also set a single-game school record this year with 42 carries in the Bears win over Texas Tech. "Growing up, you always dream of opportunities like this and you wonder how special times are created or made and they're created by opportunities and this is a great opportunity to create some excitement around the name Terrance Ganaway, Baylor University and I'm very honored to have this opportunity to go and play in the Senior Bowl." Ganaway leaves Baylor ranked ninth on the school's all-time rushing list with 2,042 yards and fourth with 28 rushing touchdowns. His career mark of 5.61 yards per carry average is second-best in Baylor history and he is the only Bear to ever have multiple 200-yard rushing games-all of which came his senior season. "The clock doesn't stop now," Ganaway said. "As long as I'm breathing I'll be the hardest working guy and I need to show that to people." - SeniorBowl.com

12/30/2011 - Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III didn't dazzle but Baylor still pulled out a thrilling Alamo Bowl victory in the highest-scoring bowl game in history, beating Washington 67-56 in a record-smashing shootout Thursday night. If this was RG3's last showcase before the NFL, it was a gripping goodbye to watch. One of the nation's most electrifying players was upstaged by an even more dazzling game that shattering the previous record for points in regulation set in the 2001 GMAC Bowl. Griffin had an unremarkable night, throwing just one touchdown pass and running for another. But Terrance Ganaway starred ably in his place, rushing for 200 yards and five touchdowns. His last was a 43-yard run with 2:28 left to seal the win for No. 15 Baylor (10-3). - AP Sports

12/29/2011 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: Senior RB Terrance Ganaway set a Baylor single-season rushing record with his total of 1,317 yards. He extended his own single-season rushing touchdown record to 16 with two scores against Texas. - The Sports Xchange

12/29/2011 - Scouting the Baylor running game: Baylor may be known for its passing, but the Bears have unleashed an effective running game as well, averaging 215 yards a game on the ground. Senior RB Terrance Ganaway has accounted for more than half the team total of 2,581 yards with his 1,347 for the season. He has rushed for 16 touchdowns. Washington gave up about 143 yards a game to opposing rushers so it could be vulnerable to Ganaway's power running. - The Sports Xchange

12/10/2011 - 2011 ALL-BIG 12 FOOTBALL FIRST TEAM (COACHES): RB Terrance Ganaway, Baylor, Sr., has been selected All-Big 12 Conference First Team for the 2011 college football season as voted on by the league's 10 head coaches, who are not permitted to vote for their own players. - Baylor football

11/26/2011 - Nick Florence threw two long touchdown passes after Robert Griffin was knocked out of the game and No. 21 Baylor extended its winning streak to four games with a 66-42 victory over Texas Tech on Saturday night. The Bears (8-3, 5-3 Big 12) had to win it without Griffin, whose Heisman Trophy chances were dealt a setback because of an apparent concussion. Still, Baylor set a school mark for most points in a conference game-Big 12 or the Southwest Conference for decades before that-and was already ahead to stay when Griffin scored on a 3-yard keeper just before halftime. That score came after he was on the sideline for one play after taking an elbow to the helmet while sliding at the end of a run. Terrance Ganaway rushed 42 times for 246 yards and two touchdowns, giving him a school-record 14 for the Bears, who reached eight wins for the first time since 1991. Texas Tech (5-7, 2-7) finished with its first losing record since 1992. The Red Raiders lost their last five games after a 41-38 upset last month at Oklahoma, which Baylor beat at home last week. - AP Sports

09/23/2011 - KEEP AN EYE ON: RB Terrance Ganaway - The shortened game may have cost the senior his second 100-yard rushing game of the season (he had 120 against TCU), but he still had a solid 80 yards on just nine carries. If he remains a consistent threat, opposing defensive coordinators are going to have their hands full stopping the Baylor offense. - The Sports Xchange

09/23/2011 - The recurring message for Baylor running back Terrance Ganaway is to play with passion. It was what coach Art Briles talked about after Ganaway rushed for 120 yards in the opening win over TCU, and it was a topic again as the Bears began getting ready for Rice. "He needs to play with a little more passion," Briles said of the senior, who rushed for 80 yards in the romp past Stephen F. Austin in Baylor's last outing. "I need to coach with a little more passion. "So we all might not have been where we needed to be the other night. We will be this Saturday." With 200 yards rushing in two games - actually less than two games because the game against S.F. Austin was called because of lightning after less than three quarters had been played - Ganaway is nearly halfway to the 495 he ran for last year. But he knows he can't slack off. - The Sports Xchange

09/23/2011 - SCOUTING THE OFFENSE: QB Robert Griffin III and WR Kendall Wright are big-play guys in Baylor's offense, and now RB Terrance Ganaway has emerged as a running threat to keep defenses honest. Ganaway has run for 200 yards in two games, even though the last outing against Stephen F. Austin was cut to less than three quarters because of lightning threats. Wright has 20 receptions for 312 yards, and Griffin has completed 83.7 percent of his passes for 624 yards and run for 116. QUOTE TO NOTE: "We're not going to be firing on all cylinders this early in the season, but we're hoping that we progressively get better in each game. And it's all fitting into place right now, and we're just happy with how we're performing." - Junior LG Cameron Kaufhold, on Baylor's running game. - The Sports Xchange

09/23/2011 - It was pretty easy to get up for our first test, TCU. You always try to find ways to get motivated, and I need to reevaluate what that is because I know these next couple games are going to be difficult if we come out as flat as we did, or if I come out as flat as I did," Ganaway said. "But the main thing is, just to keep practicing hard. I thought I had a good week of practice. It's just that the level of intensity that I played with, or lack thereof, was not good on my part at all. "When we watched film yesterday, I really could see a lot of things that I didn't do. The stats are misleading because it definitely wasn't a good day at the office." He needs to have a better one quickly. After Rice, Baylor's third straight opponent at home, the Bears are on the road for their conference opener on Oct. 1, then host Iowa State on Oct. 8. They visit Texas A&M in what could be a key Big 12 game on Oct. 15. - The Sports Xchange

09/02/2011 - SCOUTING THE OFFENSE: Even with the loss of Gordon, the Bears have the ability to score in a hurry. QB Robert Griffin III is a two-way threat and an accurate passer. He was 19-of-21 in a late scrimmage. Senior RB Terrance Ganaway seems to have gained an edge in the competition to take over for Jay Finley. QUOTE TO NOTE: "I can always get better at passing the ball and running smarter. I can get better at throwing the ball in the right spot." Junior QB Robert Griffin III, on what he can do to improve after completing 67 percent of his passes last year. - The Sports Xchange
