Oklahoma defeats Baylor, captures Big 12 crown in overtime

Oklahoma defeats Baylor, captures Big 12 crown in overtime

Ahead of the Big 12 Championship game against No. 7 Baylor, Redmond is going though warmups and appears to be ready to play today. Once OU took a 23-13 lead early in the fourth quarter, Baylor went to third-string QB and true freshman Jacob Zeno. No. 5 Utah lost Friday night to No. 13 OR in the Pac-12 championship game. No. 4 Georgia is also in the mix, but would need to beat No. 2 LSU in Saturday's SEC championship game to get there. He threw a 33-yard touchdown to Tyquan Thornton before a 28-yard field goal by Mayers put the Bears up 13-10 at halftime - even with only 98 total yards - after they trailed 10-0.

With the pass game not at its finest, Oklahoma ran the ball like insane in the second half.

If LSU wins, OU is nearly certainly assured a spot in the mix. He finished the game with eight carries for 48 yards. His first passing attempt turned into an 81-yard catch-and-run TD by Tristan Ebner. But the much-maligned Oklahoma defense kept the Sooners in the game as the offense fell short of its typical 44 points per game.

Witnesses told AFP news agency that gunmen in pick-up trucks attacked the building and forced the protesters from it. Schenker did not rule out imposing sanctions on more Iraqis including government officials.

The Sugar Bowl will be played on New Year's Day.

But if Baylor wins, the Bears may need more than just a Georgia loss.

I don't think anybody truly believe Baylor could hang with LSU, Clemson or Ohio State.
