Halftime in Norman: Baylor 24, Oklahoma 14

New, 504 comments

After going down 14-3 in the first quarter, Baylor responded with 21 points in a row to take a 10-point halftime lead. The Bears will get the ball to start the second half.

When the game seemed lost early, the Bears responded by taking over the second quarter and roaring back from a 14-3 deficit to take a 24-14 lead into halftime.

The most impressive drive of the game so far, for me, was definitely Baylor's last after the missed OU field goal.  Baylor took over the ball at the opposing 20 yard line and then went 80 yards on 16 plays in 4:40.  Sure, it was assisted by a roughing the kicker penalty on OU, but that was only after the refs missed an obvious defensive holding call that would have given the Bears a first down, anyway.

After starting out a bit shaky on Baylor's first drive, Bryce Petty finished the half 16/25 for 181 yards and 1 TD.  At this point, I'd say he looks better than at any time since the fourth quarter against TCU, and that's clearly a good thing.

Baylor gets the ball to start the second half after winning the coin flip and deferring, and it would be huge for the offense to come out and increase our lead straightaway.
