There was once a dream that was The Big XII Championship. You could only whisper it. Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish... it was so fragile...
In the most bizarre half of football that Baylor has played in 2013, the story of the first half looked to revolve around penalties, defense, injuries, sloppy play and scores that more closely resemble a baseball game.

OU's offense, meanwhile, has...well...let's just say maybe we're returning Buffalo's Tuesday night gift of looking like a stronger opponent.
Let's keep it going, Bears. I want to see a re-enactment of this at the end of the night:
