Baylor stuns Texas A&M

Bears clip No. 16 Aggies, 35-34 in OT

October 31, 2004


— Shawn Bell threw a 12-yard touchdown pass to Dominique Ziegler, and then they connected again for the game-winning two-point conversion, lifting Baylor to a 35-34 overtime shocker of No. 16 Texas A&M; on Saturday night.

After Texas A&M;'s Keith Joseph scored on a 16-yard touchdown run on the first possession of overtime, Bell and Ziegler led the Bears to the stunning finish.

Gold-and-green-clad students stormed the field, quickly taking down the goal posts in the south end zone and carrying them up and out of Floyd Casey Stadium.

A&M; players and fans watched the improbable scene in utter disbelief: The Aggies had won the last 13 games against their overmatched rival, including a 73-10 rout at College Station last year.

Baylor also ended an 11-game skid in the Big 12 and beat a ranked opponent for the first time since 1998, a 33-30 victory over 20th ranked North Carolina State. The Bears now are 38-143-5 against top 25 teams.

No. 2 Oklahoma 38, No. 20 Oklahoma State 35

Stillwater, Okla. -- Adrian Peterson rushed for 249 yards, and Oklahoma State kicker Jason Ricks missed a tying 49-yard field goal with 11 seconds left.

Mark Bradley caught a career-high three TD passes for the second-ranked Sooners (8-0, 5-0 Big 12), who have won two straight over the No. 20 Cowboys (6-2, 3-2) since losing two costly games in the Bedlam series in 2001 and 2002.

No. 8 Texas 31, Colorado 7

Boulder, Colo. -- Cedric Benson and Vince Young ran for a pair of touchdowns apiece, and the Longhorns (7-1, 4-1 Big 12) stayed in the running for a BCS bowl by winning their third straight since losing to Oklahoma. Colorado (4-4, 1-4) managed only one first down in the first half and didn't make it past the 50 until the fourth quarter.

Texas Tech 35, K-State 25

Manhattan -- NCAA passing leader Sonny Cumbie threw for 326 yards and two touchdowns. Cumbie, bidding to become the third quarterback for Texas Tech (5-3, 3-2 Big 12) in three years to pass for over 5,000 yards, was 27-of-39 and directed scoring drives on his first two possessions.
