Recruit reaction: Baylor wins Big 12 title

12/8/2013

Bedlam was further proof why rivalry games in college football are so much fun to watch -- and so unpredictable.

It also happened to provide an early holiday present for Baylor.

Oklahoma delivered a knockout blow to Oklahoma State's Big 12 championship hopes by taking a 33-24, come-from-behind win Saturday in Stillwater, Okla. With that, the Sooners also gift-wrapped the conference title to the winner of the Baylor-Texas game -- and the Bears took full advantage.

In its final game at Floyd Casey Stadium, Baylor dropped Texas, 30-10, to not only win the Big 12 title but also earn its first-ever, 11-win season and claim a berth in the Fiesta Bowl.
