Spartans Score 21 Unanswered in Fourth Quarter to Shock Baylor

iStockPhoto/Thinkstock(ARLINGTON, Texas) -- Connor Cook led scoring drives of 71, 60, and 81 yards in the fourth quarter, the final ending with a go-ahead touchdown to Keith Mumphery with 17 seconds remaining, as No. 8 Michigan State rallies to beat No. 5 Baylor 42-41 at the Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic Thursday.

Michigan State trailed by 20 points entering the fourth quarter before mounting its comeback. The winning touchdown was setup when Chris Callahan's 43-yard field goal attempt with 1:05 left was blocked by Marcus Rush. After the Spartans took the lead, Baylor had one last attempt to win the game, but quarterback Bryce Petty was sacked on back-to-back plays before Riley Bullough ended the game with an interception.

"It's just sort of crazy," coach Mark Dantonio said. "I really probably can't put it into words. We just kept pace. We didn't panic."

Petty set a Cotton Bowl-record throwing for 550 yards and three touchdowns for Baylor (11-2) in the loss.

"We've played a lot of really good games over the last seven seasons. Won a lot of really good games. And this is one of the tougher non-wins that I've ever experienced," Baylor coach Art Briles said. "It's got nothing to do with the big picture. The small picture right now is letting a game get away from us today."

Jeremy Langford rushed for 162 yards and three touchdowns for Michigan State (11-2) in the win.

College Football Playoff Set

Football Texture/iStockphoto(NEW YORK) -- The inaugural College Football Playoff is set after the committee announced their final four on Sunday.

The Alabama Crimson Tide got the top seed and will take on the fourth-seeded Ohio State Buckeyes.  In the other bracket, second-seeded Oregon will take on third-seeded Florida State.  Both games are on New Year's Day.

The latest rankings knocked the TCU Horned Frogs out of playoff contention even after their 55-3 win over Iowa State on Saturday.

Alabama will play Ohio State in the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans.  The Ducks get Florida State in the Rose Bowl in Pasadena.

The final playoff rankings had Baylor at number five, ahead of TCU.

Baylor Ends Regular Season with Win Over Kansas State

ThinkStock(WACO, Texas) -- The Baylor Bears earned a share of their second straight Big 12 Championship with a 38-27 win over ninth-ranked Kansas State on Saturday. The win also keeps number six Baylor (11-1) in the running for a spot in the inaugural College Football Playoff.

The Bears opened the game with a pair of rushing touchdowns from Bryce Petty and Shock Linwood that immediately gave them the upper hand. The Wildcats (9-3) got on the board in the second quarter as Charles Jones scored from 1 yard out, but the defense was unable to stop Baylor's high-octane attack. Baylor answered every Kansas State score with a scoring drive of their own, holding a 24-14 lead at halftime.

Baylor added two more touchdowns in the third and went up 38-20 before the Wildcats made a run in the fourth quarter. Jake Waters hit Tyler Lockett for an 8-yard touchdown pass to get Kansas State within 11, but they were unable to get any closer. 

The Bears now hope they are part of the four-team playoff, which currently has TCU in ahead of Baylor, when the final rankings are announced Sunday at noon. Baylor defeated the Horned Frogs in their only head-to-head meeting while TCU clinched a share of the conference crown with a blowout win over Illinois State on Saturday.

Big 12 Title Preview

iStockPhoto/Thinkstock(WACO, Texas) -- The Baylor Bears will have to win on Saturday against Kansas State to keep their College Football playoff hopes alive.

Baylor sits on the outside looking in at No. 5 in the rankings, and winning the Big 12 title could boost their chances of getting one of the top four spots.

"Down to a one games season. That's the way we're looking at it," Baylor head coach Art Briles said this week. "We're going to try and win every possession Saturday and take care of business."

Baylor is going for back-to-back Big 12 titles.

"Making history is about winning football games," Briles said. "We're winning games and trying to create a consistency in the program; trying to prove that we belong with the nation's elite in college football."

Baylor quarterback Bryce Petty is set to play despite suffering concussion-related symptoms from a hit he took last weekend.

Still, Kansas State head coach Bill Snyder is ready for the game.

"They're obviously a very talented well coached football team," he said.  "It is a great challenge."

No. 12 Baylor Mauls No. 15 Oklahoma 

ThinkStock(NORMAN, Ok) -- Bryce Petty and the Baylor Bears continued to showcase their dominance this season as they beat down Oklahoma Saturday. 

The Bears trailed the Sooners 14-3 after the first quarter. By the end of the fourth quarter Baylor had flipped the scoreboard as they defeated Oklahoma 48-14.

Petty picked apart the Sooners secondary by tossing for 387 yards and one touchdown, completing 32 of 42 passes. 

Baylor did its real damage on the ground as their running game gashed the Sooners for five rushing touchdowns. Shock Linwood and Devin Chafin each had a pair of scores and Corey Coleman added another of his own.

Coleman did his real damage through the air as he was on the receiving end of 15 of Petty's passes. He racked up 224 yards receiving and caught the team's lone passing touchdown.

A scary moment occurred in the waning moments of the fourth quarter as Sooners quarterback Trevor Knight attempted to avoid a sack.  He was being pulled down by his jersey when two other Baylor defended attempted to bring him down and piled him into the ground.  Knight lay motionless as medical personnel rushed to his side.  He was put on a stretcher and rushed to a local hospital.

West Virginia Upsets No. 4 Baylor

istockphoto(MORGANTOWN, WV) -- The Baylor Bears' college football playoff chances took a major blow today after losing to the West Virginia Mountaineers 41-27.

Mountaineers quarterback Clint Tricket led the West Virginia aerial attack, completing 23 of 35 passes for 322 yards and 3 touchdowns. His top target on the day was receiver Kevin White who caught 2 of those touchdown passes and racked up 132 yards on 8 catches.

Baylor put forth a mistake filled effort.  With 18 penalties for 215 yards the Bears broke a Big 12 record for most penalty yards in a single game.

The West Virginia defense also put forth a marvelous effort.  Baylor came into the game as the country's number 3 ranked offense, averaging 623 yards per game.  Today the Bears were held to 318 yards of total offense. The Mountaineers also sacked Bear's quarterback Bryce Petty four times and held the prolific passer to 223 yards through the air.

(5) Baylor Scores 24 Straight in Fourth to Rally Past (9) TCU, 61-58

iStockphoto(WACO, Texas) -- Fifth-ranked Baylor scored 24-straight points, erasing a 21 point deficit with 11:38 left to play, to beat ninth-ranked TCU, 61-58 Saturday.

After Baylor tied the game on Bryce Petty's 25-yard touchdown pass to Corey Coleman, TCU had a chance to win. The Horned Frogs (4-1, 1-1 Big 12) drove it to the Bears 45 but turned it over on downs after failing to convert a fourth-and-three. Baylor then marched down the field before Chris Callahan delivered the game-winning 28-yard field goal with time expiring.

"I just knew, looking at guys' faces, that we were going to come back in that game," Petty said. "With our offense and the way that we play defense, 21 points isn't a big deal for us."

Petty finishes the game completing 28 of 55 passes for a career-high 510 yards, six touchdowns and two interceptions.

Baylor (6-0, 3-0 Big 12) has now won 13-straight home games.
