Keep a lid on it: With five minutes left in the second quarter both offenses were posting similar numbers, with OU averaging 3.1 yards per play and Baylor averaging 3.5 yards per play. This stat was posted right after a wide crowd-panning shot that showed a Baylor fan sign reading “We’re going to win.” To that point at least the game was playing into OU’s low-scoring hands.
What are you supposed to be? With 11:45 left in the third, there was a nice costumed fan sighting. A Baylor fan sported a suit of orange pom poms from head to toe, capped off with metallic Oakley-style sunglasses and a green pom pom top. I don’t know what he was supposed to be, but he did end up on TV.
Bounce pass celebration: The Bears made it 31-5 with 8:14 left in the third quarter on a touchdown pass. Afterwards there was an awkward touchdown celebration between two Bears that involved a fake jumpshot, bounce pass and a sheepishly casual handoff to the referee. No flag.
End game: With 10:25 remaining in the fourth quarter and Baylor leading 34-12 the writing was on the wall. The camera hit a wide shot of the Baylor fans in unison at what looked like jazz hands but surely was the Baylor Bear claw.
