As Baylor prepares for a rare national television shot tonight at Connecticut, here are a couple of notable events that happened on this day earlier in Big 12 history. 

Sept. 19. 1964 - No. 2 Oklahoma 13, Maryland 3 (College Park, Md.) - After struggling most of the game, the Sooners struck twice in the final quarter to claim Coach Gomer Jones' debut with the team. Third-string QB John Hammond hooked up with Lance Rentzel on a 90-yard TD pass with less than 4 minutes remaining to give the Sooners the lead for good. And QB Mike Ringer iced the victory with another TD run.

Sept. 19, 1970 - No. 9 Nebraska 21, No. 3 USC 21 (Los Angeles) - Clarence Davis' 9-yard run with 6:44 remaining pulled the Trojans into a tie that would be the only blemish for the Cornhuskers during this season. QB Jerry Tagge passed for 140 yards and a TD despite being hospitalized most of the week before the game with a broken vein in his leg.
