The Big 12 Championship Game appeared to be controlled by Oklahoma for much of the first half. Yet it was Baylor that carried a 13-10 lead into halftime.
Baylor starting quarterback Charlier Brewer was forced to leave the game due to injury and has yet to return. In his place, backup QB Gerry Bohannon has had varying results.
Bohannon has completed just 3-of-11 passes, but two of them have gone for big plays. One of them even tied the game at 10-all.
Facing a long third-and-20 play late in the first half, Bohannon danced around in the pocket while looking downfield. He eventually got the ball off and somehow found Tyquan Thornton for a 33-yard score.

Bohannon would use another long passing play to get Baylor in position for a field goal with time winding down in the first half. That put the Bears up 13-10 at the break. Can Matt Rhule’s squad finish it off in the second half?
