FORT WORTH, Texas -- The Big 12's top offenses were no match for Mother Nature.
Playing in a relentless rainstorm throughout, TCU defeated Baylor 28-21 in double overtime at Amon G. Carter Stadium on Friday night.
Here's how it happened:
How the game was won: TCU freshmen Julius Lewis and Ty Summers came up huge on Baylor's fourth-down attempt in the second overtime, stopping Bears running back Devin Chafin for no gain on fourth-and-1 at the TCU 16-yard line. The Horned Frogs' defensive stand came after quarterback Trevone Boykin found a wide-open KaVontae Turpin to give TCU the winning points with an 8-yard touchdown to start the second overtime.
Player of the game: Summers' crucial play in overtime capped an outstanding night. The linebacker finished with 23 tackles (seven solo), including 1.5 for loss, in the victory. With Baylor forced to lean on its running game in the downpour, Summers continually put himself in the right place at the right time to stop the Bears for short gains.
What the win means for TCU: The gutty performances from Gary Patterson's team continue. Considering all the injuries the Horned Frogs have dealt with this season, it's quite remarkable to see them reach 10 wins. TCU has back-to-back 10-win campaigns after winning 11 combined games during its first two seasons in the Big 12. The Horned Frogs finish the regular season at 10-2 and could be in contention for a New Year's Six bowl if things fall just right on the rest of the college football landscape.
What the loss means for Baylor: The Bears saw their Big 12 title hopes dashed -- Saturday's Bedlam battle between Oklahoma and Oklahoma State will now decide the conference crown -- and their College Football Playoff dreams were washed away with the loss. The wet conditions really took Baylor's explosive deep passing game out of the equation, resulting in a run-heavy approach and erasing the big plays that make the Bears tough to stop.
