If you don't want to drill the studs, another option is to cut a channel in the drywall a couple inches from the bottom - 2 cuts, instead of one at the bottom.
It's a forgiving process, with everything covered by the baseboard. Hard to screw it up. The only difficulty, in my experience, is caulking the edge and painting nail holes.
For posterity, be careful of toenails in the bottom of the vertical studs, when drilling. They will dull your bit, and could give your wrist a strong yank if they stop the bit.
