Baylor Vs. Kansas Final Score: Bears Rally To Defeat Jayhawks In Overtime, 31-30

The Baylor Bears needed a fourth quarter comeback to defeat the Kansas Jayhakws in overtime 31-30. Baylor trailed 24-3 and need 21 fourth quarter points to force overtime. In the fourth quarter Baylor's Robert Griffin III took over on offense and had a hand in all three touchdowns. Griffin rushed for one score on a 49 yard rush and then threw for two touchdowns; one touchdown was a 37 yard pass to Terrance Williams and the game tying score was a 67 yard score to Tevin Reese.

The  67 yard score was the touchdown that sent the game into overtime. Once overtime came Griffin took over again and lead Baylor to a touchdown by tossing a 14-yard touchdown pass to Reese. Kansas then went down and scored a touchdown a 25-yard pass from Jordan Webb to Time Biere and then decided to go for two instead of going into double-overtime. The two-point attempt came up short and Baylor's comeback was complete.
