Game 9: Baylor 35, Oklahoma State 31
November 3 | Waco, Texas
Charlie Brewer threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to Denzel
Mims with seven seconds left to give Baylor a 35-31 win
over Oklahoma State on Saturday.
Brewer didn’t play the first three quarters after spending the
week in concussion protocol since Baylor’s last game. But he
led the Bears (5-4, 3-3 Big 12) to consecutive touchdown drives
after entering the game, including a 36-yard TD pass to Jalen
Hurd with 5:43 left.
Baylor’s game-winning drive started after Oklahoma State (5-
4, 2-4) was stopped on fourth down, when Chris Miller sacked
Taylor Cornelius for a 9-yard loss with 1:31 left.
The Bears then went 55 yards on either plays, the winning
score coming on Brewer’s TD to Mims.
The win gets Baylor within one win of bowl eligibility, a year
after winning only one game in coach Matt Rhule’s first season.
John Lovett ran for 104 yards and a touchdown, including a
75-yarder one play after Oklahoma State took a two-score lead
late in the third quarter. Jalan McClendon got the start at quarterback
for Baylor and threw for 102 yards with an interception.
He had a 1-yard touchdown on a quarterback sneak in the second
Baylor’s only lead before the final score was after a blocked
punt by Christian Morgan that was taken seven yards to the end
zone by Trestan Ebner to make it 14-10 in the second quarter.
Cornelius threw for 287 yards and a touchdown and ran for
a score. Justice Hill had 119 yards rushing and a touchdown for
