WACO, Texas (AP) – Bryce Petty threw for 412 yards, Johnny Jefferson had two touchdown runs and fifth-ranked Baylor claimed a share of its second consecutive Big 12 title with a 38-27 win over ninth-ranked Kansas State on Saturday night.
The Bears (11-1, 8-1 Big 12, No. 6 CFP) now have to wait and see if they will get a chance to be in the four-team playoff. TCU, which also grabbed a share of the conference title, but lost to Baylor earlier this season, also is in the mix.
TCU (11-1, 8-1, No. 3 CFP) has won seven in a row since its 61-58 loss to the Bears.
Petty completed 34 of 40 passes with a touchdown and an interception, a week after getting knocked out of the Bears’ last game with a concussion.
