UDPATE: Jacob Zeno helped Baylor tie up the game, but they came up short in overtime. Oklahoma scored on the opening drive and forced a turnover on downs on Baylor’s drive to win 30-23.
Zeno came on in relief in the fourth quarter and connected on his first pass, throwing an 81-yard touchdown to Trestan Ebner. A drive later, he connected on his second pass, this time to Chris Platt for 78 yards. That moved Baylor into field goal range where they eventually settled for a game-tying John Mayers field goal. The score is knotted up at 23 with just over three minutes remaining in the game.
The Bears quarterback situation had been a disaster in the title game. Charlie Brewer started the game and completed three of six passes for 15 yards before leaving the game with a head injury. Gerry Bohanon replaced him, but completed only four of 15 passes for 56 yards. He had a touchdown, and was replaced by Zeno.
