Oct. 30, 2010
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- Robert Griffin III passed for two touchdowns and ran for another in leading No. 25 Baylor to a 30-22 win over Texas on Saturday night, the Bears' first over the Longhorns since 1997.
Baylor trailed 19-10 early in the third quarter before Jay Finley ran 69 yards for a touchdown. Griffin then scored on a 1-yard touchdown and hit Kendall Wright with a 30-yard scoring pass in the fourth.
Baylor (7-2, 4-1) got its first win in Austin since 1991 and stays in first place in the Big 12 South. Texas (4-4, 2-3) looked in control when Garrett Gilbert scored on a 20-yard run in the third, but Baylor then scored three consecutive touchdowns and the Longhorns were unable to hold on to the lead.
Finley rushed for 116 yards on 15 carries. Griffin passed for 219 yards and also had a 59-yard TD strike to Terrance Williams in the first half.
Justin Tucker tied a Texas record with five field goals.
Texas led 9-3 before Griffin hit Williams with the long TD strike in the second quarter.
Gilbert drove Texas to the go-ahead field goal before halftime and put Texas up by nine, 19-10, with his scrambling run for a touchdown on the first drive of the third.
But on Texas' next possession, a big hit on Greg Smith forced an interception by Antonio Johnson that set up Baylor inside the Texas 20. Baylor converted a fourth-and-1 on the Texas 2.
Griffin scored on the first play of the fourth quarter and then the touchdown pass to Wright put the Bears up 30-19 with 8:38 to play.
Justin Tucker added a late 21-yard field goal to make it 30-22.
