WACO, Texas _ Baylor receiver Ishmael Zamora is having the best night of his career in his season debut after a three-game suspension over a video of him whipping his dog.
The sophomore had a career-high 109 yards receiving and two touchdowns in the first half for the 16th-ranked Bears against Oklahoma State on Saturday night.

Zamora's first touchdown came after a high pass from Seth Russell went through the hands of Lynx Hawthorne and into the arms of Zamora. Since the defense converged on Hawthorne, Zamora ran untouched down the sideline for the final 30 yards of the 38-yard play.
The second TD was a leaping grab over Oklahoma State's Lenzy Pipkins for a 21-14 lead that held up until halftime. The two scores matched his career total coming into the game.
The game was delayed by lightning for about 1 1/2 hours after Baylor scored on the opening series.
The video of Zamora surfaced after an eventful summer over the school's mishandling of sexual assault cases. A law firm's report on the assault cases led to the departures of coach Art Briles, school President Ken Starr and athletic director Ian McCaw.
