Baylor's Landor earns Big 12 defensive honor
Monday, Oct 18, 2010
By Staff    


IRVING, Texas (BP)--Baylor senior safety Byron Landor has been named Big 12 Conference Defensive Player of the Week, as selected by a panel of media and announced by the conference office Oct. 18.

Landor forced two turnovers and tallied seven tackles, five of which were solo stops, in Baylor's 31-25 win at Colorado. With their fifth win of the season, the Bears moved to within one game of becoming bowl eligible for the first time since 1995.

With Colorado moving downfield on the opening drive of the game, Landor grabbed a Tyler Hansen pass out of the air at the Baylor 22-yard line for the first interception of his career. Landor returned the pick 32 yards into Colorado territory.

In the third quarter, Colorado running back Will Jefferson broke free and went 23 yards before Landor stripped the ball just shy of the goal-line. Had Jefferson scored, the Buffaloes would've taken a two possession lead. Instead, Baylor's Antonio Johnson recovered the fumble in the end zone, and the Bears marched 80 yards down the field for a touchdown that put Baylor on top for good.
