ARLINGTON - Art Briles doesn't want to fight a man living out of his car - a desperate man, a dangerous man. The Baylor coach said he'd prefer a fight with a man who seemingly has it all, a nice house, nice cars and three children at home.

ARLINGTON - All through this stinker of a season, a lot of Texas Tech football fans clung to one thought to console themselves. Not wait 'til next year. Wait 'til next year with Jarrett Stidham.

Texas Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes has wrist injury

Texas Tech freshman quarterback Patrick Mahomes has a left-wrist injury that is still being evaluated, according to Texas Tech spokesman Blayne Beal. 

According to multiple reports, Mahomes injured the wrist against Oklahoma. Beal would not confirm if the wrist was broken and said that there is currently no plan of action and no surgery has been scheduled. 

The injury did not seem to bother Mahomes against Baylor. The freshman was 30 of 56 passing for 598 yards and six touchdowns in the 48-46 loss to the Bears.

First quarter fumbles

Baylor didn’t even have to fight in a scrum for the ball.

 

It popped right over to them – twice.

After Texas Tech running back Kenny Williams picked up a first down on fourth and 2, he tried to plow his way past the first down marker the ball popped loose.

Terrell Burt caught the ball as it came out of the senior running back’s hands. 

Petty says he expects to play next week after getting knocked out of Tech game

ARLINGTON -- Baylor quarterback Bryce Petty said he felt good after the Bears' 48-46 victory Saturday against Texas Tech, but he was diagnosed with a mild concussion after a hit from Sam Eguavoen forced him out of the game in the third quarter.

“Everything went black when I tried to open my eyes,” Petty said. “Everything was kind of blurry.”

Robertson, who hit Petty under the chin, was flagged for roughing the passer. Petty’s health is key for Baylor, which finishes the regular season Saturday hosting No. 11 Kansas State.

For Bustin, a record-setting day but a costly miss

ARLINGTON -- Senior kicker Ryan Bustin took over the Texas Tech career record for field goals by making his 49th and 50th on Saturday in a 48-46 loss to Baylor. He came into the game sharing the top spot with Alex Trlica.

However, Bustin missed a 50-yard field goal off the left upright just before halftime, which was costly in a 48-46 loss.

In the last month of the season, Bustin missed two extra points and a 29-yard field goal, as well as field-goal tries from 48 and 50 yards.

Makeshift secondary a bright spot in Tech loss

IRVING -- Texas Tech starting safeties J.J. Gaines (shoulder) and Keenon Ward (head) both missed Saturday's season finale against Baylor, as did top backup Jalen Barnes (head).

Usual cornerback starter Justis Nelson, himself returning from injury, started at Ward’s free safety spot and Derrick Dixon made his second start in a row at strong safety.

Linebacker Sam Eguavoen said Nelson had a full week of practice at safety, the position at which he started his Tech career.
