Robert Griffin III passed for two
touchdowns and ran for another in leading No. 25 Baylor to a 30-22
win over Texas on Saturday night, the Bears' first over the
Longhorns since 1997.
Baylor trailed 19-10 early in the third quarter before Jay
Finley ran 69 yards for a touchdown. Griffin then scored on a
1-yard touchdown and hit Kendall Wright with a 30-yard scoring pass
in the fourth.
Baylor (7-2, 4-1) got its first win in Austin since 1991 and
stays in first place in the Big 12 South. Texas (4-4, 2-3) looked
in control when Garrett Gilbert scored on a 20-yard run in the
third, but dropped its third consecutive home loss.
Finley rushed for 116 yards on 15 carries. Griffin passed for
219 yards and also had a 59-yard TD strike to Terrance Williams in
the first half.
Justin Tucker tied a Texas record with five field goals.
