Bryce Petty falls over, Shock Linwood makes a dumb fumble, and Baylor doesn't score

Baylor should be up by a touchdown, but made two of the dumber mistakes you can make in a football game.

Baylor should be up 7-0 on Oklahoma State.The fact they are not is the result of two very, very silly plays that they could have prevented by, like, doing regular things.

First, Bryce Petty had a clear lane on a QB keeper. There was nobody between him and the end zone. But, he, just, like, stopped being able to run:

That left the Bears with first-and-goal at the one. But that didn't work.

Shock Linwood was trying to get into the end zone, but was stopped, and then committed a cardinal sin: reaching out for the end zone and leaving the ball totally exposed:

Since he was resting on some linemen, he wasn't down, and this was a fumble, and Oklahoma State got the ball at their own one. A pretty pass by Clint Chelf got them out of the SAFETY DANGER zone, and the first scoring chance of a matchup of top ten teams was for naught.
