Baylor takes down Texas, wins first Big 12 title
Waco, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Bryce Petty threw touchdown passes to Antwan Goodley and Levi Norwood in a decisive third quarter, as No. 9 Baylor earned a trip to the Fiesta Bowl with a 30-10 decision over No. 23 Texas in the regular-season finale for both schools at a windy and frigid Floyd Casey Stadium.
Petty ended up 21-of-37 for 287 yards for the Bears (11-1, 8-1 Big 12), who needed some help to gain the conference crown and a BCS berth in the form of Oklahoma topping Oklahoma State earlier in the day and got it when the Sooners shocked the Cowboys in Stillwater.
Glasco Martin carried the ball 22 times for 102 yards and a late touchdown, while Goodley led all receivers with 114 yards on eight receptions.
Case McCoy was limited to 54 yards on 12-of-34 efficiency for the Longhorns (8-4, 7-2), who are still bowl bound but finished the regular season with losses in two of their last three.
Malcolm Brown totaled 131 yards on 25 carries, and recorded Texas' lone TD with a 2-yard catch.
