Morning Wrap: Baylor Handles Kansas State Makes Playoff Statement


Was it enough?

That's the question all over the state of Texas Sunday morning after both Baylor and TCU took care of business on Saturday.

The Bears did their part Saturday night, powering past a dangerous Kansas State team 38-27 in Waco.

QB Bryce Petty, who left the previous weeks game with a concussion, came back to lead his team to a share of the Big 12 title with 412 yards passing and a TD. He ran for a TD as well.

Really the only questions lingering after the game were: 1) Will Baylor get to leapfrog TCU, the other co-champ of the Big 12, who is ranked ahead of them (as of 10am Sunday). 2) Will either Big 12 team be able to hold off the strong Ohio State sentiment coming after their championship win.

We say yes, despite the Big 12 only being 10 and not having a title game, both teams, Baylor and TCU should be ahead of Ohio State. Bottom line: tOSU lost to a crappy Va. Tech team.

Yes, TCU lost to Baylor and that should count. Baylor lost to an inferior West Virginia team.

So how does it play out? We have no earthly idea.... provides the Baylor highlights:

It should be noted that after the game, Baylor head coach Art Briles was um, less than thrilled with Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby. Bowlsby was in Waco after presenting a Big 12 trophy to TCU in Fort Worth just a few hours earlier. Both TCU and Baylor fans were chanting "One True Champion", something that the Big 12 is unable to produce. Unless it went to tiebreakers, which they aren't doing either.
