Baylor ousts 14th ranked TCU in a shootout

Robert Griffin III went 21-27 with 359 yards and 5 TDs as the Baylor Bears shocked the 14th ranked TCU Horned Frogs in a 50-48 upset. The game proved to be an exciting shootout as Griffin III, Kendall Wright, and TCU's Casey Pachall threw for a total of 10 TDs in the game. RG3 led Baylor to a 47-23 lead at the start of the 4th quarter, but Pachall would start a TCU rally as they scored 25 unanswered points to take a brief 48-47 lead with 4 minutes 31 seconds left in the game. Griffin III would lead Baylor on the ensuing drive to set up the go-ahead 37 yard field goal. This is Baylor's first victory over a ranked team since beating 16th ranked Texas A&M seven years ago so you can bet they'll be partying in Waco. As for TCU, the Horned Frogs will not go to a BCS bowl this year after two consecutive berths.
