Baylor Vs. Oklahoma Score: Bears Get First Ever Victory Over Sooners, 45-38

Coming into this game the Baylor Bears have lost 20 straight games against the Oklahoma Sooners, but that losing streak has come to an end as Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III had a Heisman moment on the game winning drive, and really a Heisman type game as he had 479 yards passing yards, which was a school record, with four touchdowns as well as another 72 yards on the ground.

We will skip ahead to the fourth quarter since that is where the most exciting action happened tonight. Each team score 14 points. Baylor started the quarter with a touchdown to go up 38-24 which seemed like the game would be over, but Oklahoma came back to score 14 unanswered points to tie the game. Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops was going to go for the two-point conversion and it forced Baylor to call a timeout, and after the timeout Oklahoma brought out the same formation but lineman Adam Shead jumped and forced Oklahoma to kick the extra point. The second Oklahoma touchdown left Baylor only 51 seconds and it seemed that the game was heading to overtime.

Baylor looked like they were going to play overtime as they had no time outs  and their first play was a running play, but for some reason Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops decided to call a timeout. Not sure why any coach would want to give Griffin more time to mount a comeback. Baylor decided to go for it and try to get into field goal range to go for the win. Griffin then took over the game as he scrambled 22 yards for a first down and then again for another eight yards to get into Oklahoma territory.

Griffin then took to the air and hooked up again with Kendall Wright for a 12-yard gain which out Baylor near field goal range at the 34 yard line. Then on the next play Baylor decided to go to the air and Griffin connected with Terrance Williams in the endzone to go ahead 45-38 and win the game. Baylor then recovered the squib kick to officially earn the their first ever victory over Oklahoma.
