Holgorsen said he put Millard in the game, beginning in the first quarter, because he was again frustrated by the communication problems with Trickett.
"We weren't getting called what I felt we needed to get called," Holgorsen said. "There were a lot of times the first couple series I was giving him specific orders what weren't being followed."
The Mountaineers scored 21 points in the fourth quarter, including a 31-yard interception return score. Travis Bell picked off a pass, but flipped it back to safety Darwin Cook, who did the rest.
Cook was briefly ejected in the second quarter for a targeting penalty, but the ejection was overturned on a review. Left tackle Adam Pankey, a redshirt freshman playing in his second career game, was ejected for targeting a defenseless defender with 2:17 to go.
White caught seven passes for 130 yards and scored twice. Charles Sims carried 19 times for 92 yards and one touchdown.
Baylor quarterback Bryce Petty completed 17 of 25 passes for 347 yards and two scores. Antwan Goodley had 170 yards and scored once on seven receptions and Tevin Reese added 75 yards and a score on three catches.
Running back Lache Seastrunk had 172 yards and two scores on 15 carries. Shock Linwood, the third-string running back, added 126 yards and a score on 14 carries. Baylor had 468 yards on the ground.
Baylor scored on its third play of the game and WVU went three-and-out, but tied the score when Baylor's Levi Norwood muffed a punt return inside his 5-yard line and watched as WVU's Karl Joseph recovered in the end zone for a touchdown.
The Bears then ripped off a 12-play, 75-yard drive in 3 minutes, 33 seconds. Petty's 2-yard run was the first touchdown in a stunning sequence in which Baylor scored on three straight snaps.
WVU turned the ball over on downs after a two-yard loss on fourth-and-2 at its 49 and Baylor pounced with a 47-yard touchdown pass form Petty to Reese. The Mountaineer punted and Nick O'Toole's first touchback of the season gave the Bears the ball at the 20. Seastrunk scored on an 80-yard run.
The first quarter ended on a 14-yard run by Seastrunk to WVU's 3, but the lead was 35-7 two plays into the second quarter.
WVU's only stop in the first half came when freshman Daryl Worley intercepted Petty at the WVU 10. Baylor would score three more times in the first half on runs by Glascoe Martin, Seastrunk and Linwood.
Seastrunk's score answered a 39-yard touchdown pass from Trickett to White. Linwood's score was facilitated by Baylor using timeouts on defense to make sure WVU punted back to the Bears with plenty of time left in the half.
Baylor scored on its first drive of the third quarter and played backups the rest of the way. The lead grew to be as large as 45 points when it was 66-21 at the end of the third quarter.
"Any time the opposing offense can be that dominant, you're going to struggle," Holgorsen said. "They came of the ball and established the line of scrimmage like I haven't seen in quite some time. Any time that happens, it's going to be a long day."
