The game of this season…of any season. Baylor led 47-23 to start the fourth quarter, surrendered 25 unanswered points to TCU to go behind 48-47, clawed their way back to take a 50-48 lead with a field goal and sealed the upset with an interception in the dying moments to keep TCU out of field goal range. 13 touchdowns. 1,030 yards of total offense. Waco hasn’t seen this intense of a shootout since…well…let’s not go there.
Robert Griffin III elevated himself from Heisman dark-horse to Heisman candidate. He went 21/27 for 359 yards and five touchdowns against the remnants of a defense ranked No. 1 in the country for three consecutive years. Huge win for Baylor who came into the game 3-51 against ranked opponents since the Big 12 formed. Nice statement win for the Big 12 which, for the moment, still exists.
This is TCU’s first regular season loss since Utah beat them 13-10 in Nov. 2008. Probably a rebuilding year for the Horned Frogs on defense, but credit Baylor’s offense,
