Recap: Oklahoma vs. Baylor
Norman, OK (SportsNetwork.com) - Devin Chafin and Shock Linwood both ran for two touchdowns as 10th-ranked Baylor posted an impressive 48-14 win over No. 16 Oklahoma on Saturday.
Bryce Petty set a career high with 32 completions and finished with 387 passing yards and one touchdown for the Bears (8-1, 5-1 Big 12), who scored the final 45 points en route to posting the program's first-ever win in 12 trips to Norman.
"The coolest part about it is that, to me, it's just the tip of the iceberg for this team. It really is," said Petty. "People still say, 'You are still Baylor.' Yeah, we are Baylor. This is different. This isn't the same team as the 90s or the 80s.
"(People) are going to have to get that out of (their) minds. We love being part of this. We love being the underdog. We play so much better when we are mad and upset. We can't ever be happy, can't ever be satisfied. Coach (Art) Briles tells us that all the time. When we come out determined and ready to rock 'n' roll it's going to be a good day for us."
Corey Coleman caught 15 passes for 224 yards, the second-highest totals in a game in Baylor history, and scored two touchdowns.
Oklahoma quarterback Trevor Knight completed 12-of-27 passes for 146 yards with two touchdowns and one interception before being forced out of the game on a fourth-quarter sack.
Knight was placed on a backboard and pointed to the sky as he was being removed on a cart.
Alex Ross amassed 71 yards on six carries for Oklahoma (6-3, 3-3), which had produced at least 30 points in 12 straight games.
"I'm not too sure if we look at it as an embarrassing loss as a team because Baylor is a good team and we have to give them credit where it's due," said Oklahoma receiver Michiah Quick. "We just have to shut everyone out and keep it positive in the locker room and come back hard on Monday."
Baylor's Chris Callahan kicked a 34-yard field goal to open the scoring, but Oklahoma built a 14-3 lead as Knight threw touchdown passes of eight and nine yards to Quick and Durron Neal on consecutive possessions later in the first quarter.
The Bears fought back with a 21-point second quarter.
Petty hooked up with Coleman for a 33-yard touchdown and Chafin scored on a plunge after Bryce Hager returned a Knight interception to Oklahoma 1.
The Sooners, now trailing 17-14, looked to tie the game, but Michael Hunnicutt missed a 31-yard field goal try wide right.
Oklahoma was then flagged for roughing the kicker on a punt, giving the Bears a fresh set of downs. Petty later converted a 4th-and-4 from the Oklahoma 33 with a 10-yard pass to Jay Lee, and Chafin extended Baylor's lead to 24-14 with a 2-yard TD run.
The Bears marched down the field with ease on each of their first two drives in the third quarter. Coleman had a 5-yard touchdown run and Linwood scored on a 3-yard run.
In the fourth quarter, Callahan made a 24-yard field goal and Linwood reached the end zone on a 15-yard run.Game Notes
