Baylor set a school record for most points in a conference game as they collected their fourth straight victory in conference play and surpassing their win total from last season (7-6). Terrance Ganaway rushed 42 times for 246 yards and two touchdowns, giving him a school-record 14.
Seth Doege led Texas Tech in passing going 41-55 for 355 yards with three touchdowns and two picks. Jacob Karam, normally the backup quarterback, wore a different jersey number and threw a 44 yard touchdown pass to Darrin Moore.
Texas Tech (5-7, 2-7) finished with its first losing record since 1992 when Spike Dykes was head coach in Lubbock.
