Oklahoma Vs. Baylor Final Score: Robert Griffin III Is The Best Football Player Ever

The Oklahoma Sooners and Baylor Bears will head to overtime, tied at 38 each, after Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops nearly tried to end it all in the final minute. Baylor had a chance to win it with 50 seconds remaining after a Sooners touchdown, put played for overtime. But OU started calling time outs, so the Bears obliged by advancing the ball to midfield with 28 seconds to go.

Kendall Wright grabbed a first down inside of Aaron Jones' field goal range, which proved unnecessary -- Robert Griffin III fired a 34-yard touchdown to Terrance Williams in the end zone, making it 45-38 with eight ticks to go. The Bears recovered a squibbed kickoff, and that was that.

Griffin finished with a school-record 478 yards passing, plus 86 on the ground. OU's title hopes are done, Bedlam is just another football game now, and everything is completely broken.

The nuttiness, other than Oklahoma's time out call:

With a 38-31 lead, Baylor had a chance to put the game away, but punted it back at the 3:31 mark. All that time allowed OU to keep feeding Roy Finch, who approached the 100-yard mark early in the drive. A strike from Landry Jones to Jaz Reynolds put the ball inside Baylor's 30, followed by another Reynolds catch.

A screen to Trey Franks earned a first down, but as the one-minute mark approached, the Sooners found themselves stuck with a third down in the red zone. Brennan Clay grabbed the ball in the flat for an easy conversion.

Alliterative bruiser Blake Bell took over for Jones, forcing a Baylor time out. The Belldozer powered for a touchdown, giving Stoops a decision. Send Bell up the middle again for the likely win, or kick and hold for overtime?

Stoops sent Bell right back out, in the same formation, to boot. Baylor called another time out after getting a look at the arrangement. Same quarterback, same set, and Oklahoma lineman Adam Shead jumped. OU was forced to kick.

This weekend was supposed to be the worst of the college football season. But do you realize that even before this game, almost half of the top seven lost? Hail Corso.

Oklahoma Vs. Baylor Score: Kendall Wright Touchdown Ties It, Was Inexplicable

The Oklahoma Sooners and Baylor Bears are finally scoring up to their reputations, even if they're having to pull out magic tricks to do it. OU led Baylor, 24-17, in the third quarter, until Robert Griffin III found Kendall Wright for an 87-yard touchdown, the longest of the year for the Bears.

Stay tuned here for Oklahoma-Baylor score updates and discussion.

The ball bounced off an Oklahoma defender, hurtled through the Waco air forever, and landed in Wright's arms. To say Griffin "found" Wright is not accurate. The ball found him, and would not be denied in its quest.

The Sooners were forced to punt from deep in their own territory on the next drive, and we could be going full #UPSETALERT if another one of those touchdowns occurs -- one nearly did, but Griffin missed a wide open 85-yarder. Eighteen minutes remain.

Oklahoma Vs. Baylor Halftime Score: Robert Griffin III Delivers 17-10 Lead

The Baylor Bears and the Oklahoma Sooners had a mini explosion of offense during the middle of the second quarter, leaving the Bears in the lead, 17-10, at halftime. Terrance Ganaway and Robert Griffin III powered the Bears to two touchdowns and the lead.

Griffin continued to be the spark plug for the Bears offense. His 55-yard pass to Kendall Wright eventually led to Terance Ganaway scoring on a 15-yard rush up the middle. Griffin then followed on his next drive with a 69-yard strike to Tevin Reese, scoring a touchdown in just 15 seconds. Griffin is 8-of-13 for 197 yards.

Wedged in between the Baylor scores was an Oklahoma touchdown by Blake Bell, who found the end zone on a three-yard rush. A 14-yard Roy Finch run and a Kenny Stills 20-yard reception were the key plays on that drive.

Oklahoma Vs. Baylor Score: Bears, Sooners Knotted At 10

The Baylor Bears could spoil the Oklahoma Sooners' season by delivering a second loss, but they'll need to hold on to that through the second half. The Bears, after being tied at three at the end of the first quarter, took a 10-3 lead midway through the second quarter. However, they quickly saw the game tied once again.

Robert Griffin III sparked the Bears offense with a 55-yard pass to Kendall Wright that put the Bears at the Sooners' 28-yard line. Running back Terrance Ganaway picked up the remaining 28 yards on two rushes, including a 15-yard rush up the middle of the field for the touchdown. Aaron Jones connected on the extra point to put the Bears ahead by a touchdown.

Oklahoma countered with a Blake Bell three-yard touchdown run on the next drive. The Bears are going to need to slow down the Sooners in the second half to win this one.

Oklahoma Vs. Baylor Score: A Field Goal Battle, Of Course

The Oklahoma Sooners and Baylor Bears! Millions of points! Never any defense! How could it happen any other way? It is happening, so far at least.

Stay tuned here for Oklahoma-Baylor score updates and discussion.

After one quarter, your score was 3-3. Landry Jones has already thrown for 103 yards, but a Trey Franks somersault fumble killed an OU drive. Sparked by the turnover, Robert Griffin III and friends drove near midfield, but had to punt. It was a small spark.

This game had looked like an upset threat coming in. After the Oklahoma St. Cowboys were downed last night, you had to wonder whether at least one Bedlam participant was caught looking ahead. Too early to say whether that's the case here, but the Sooners certainly have their work cut out against an offense that might be just as talented, with Ryan Broyles out.
