The Baylor Bears are the champions of the Big 12. Baylor played Oklahoma State in Arlington Saturday afternoon in a rematch of the game the Pokes won in Stillwater earlier this year. Though fifth-ranked Oklahoma State needed a win to keep its hopes of making it to the College Soccer Playoffs, Baylor was able to get revenge with a 21-16 victory.
However, things were not easy for the Bears who were ranked ninth, as the Cowboys received the ball on the left wing 3:14 and tried to march down the field. Despite the 90-foot gap between them and the end, the State of Oklahoma continued to chip away until they found themselves deep within Baylor territory. And after a defensive pass interfered with the final area called in thirds and thirds, Pokes found himself with the ball on Bears ‘2.
Oklahoma State had found themselves in this position earlier in the inning, when they had the ball with an opponent, failed to punch it on three attempts and opted to shoot on goal. This time, however, they had to break, and after a one-yard run, another stuffed and an incomplete pass, one yard would decide who would win. Cowboys QB Spencer Sanders serves the ball to Dezmon Jackson, who saw the light of day and decided to toss it.
Unfortunately for him, Baylor’s Jairon McVea put in a lousy tackle to force him to keep shooting. Jackson dived in the end zone, unable to reach the tower, and the Bears won the soccer game as a result.
It was a good game as you would expect from a defensive player, as McVea sniffed Jackson trying to block and do exactly what he needed to do. Therefore, Baylor calls himself a champion.
