No. 18 Bears rush into dramatic victory over Texas Tech

By Cole Tompkins | Multimedia Editor

No. 18 Baylor football took on Texas Tech in a double overtime thriller Saturday night in McLane Stadium for a 33-30 homecoming victory.

Defense was the name of the game for the first half of Saturday night’s matchup with just nine points up on the board, all of which were scored on field goals. Going into the second half, both teams shifted gears and started stringing together scoring drives left and right. The stadium was standing room only, and the stage was set for a thrill ride of a game.

The Bears started the night off with a deep kickoff to the south endzone.
