Baylor started the year 6-0 and was ranked No. 17 in the initial College Football Playoff rankings. The Bears went 0-6 the rest of the way. They still intend to accept a bowl bid Sunday despite that brutal finish.

Bizarre ending to Baylor-West Virginia. The Bears were driving to tie or win the game, but QB Zach Smith was stripped and OL Ishmael Wilson tossed the ball forward, which WVU recovered. Officials determine Wilson never had possession of the ball and give it to WVU for the 24-21 win.

Baker Mayfield posted a 95.7 Total QBR against Oklahoma State, his FBS-leading ninth game this season with a QBR above 90. Mayfield enters bowls with the top QBR in the nation, and notably his return means the top 4 in Total QBR are likely coming back to school next season.

Isaiah Ford is the only 1,000-yard receiver in Virginia Tech history, and he'll have back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons with 51 yards tonight. The Hokies might need more than 51 from him to pull off the upset, however, as they'll have to make a few a big plays in the passing game. That's not easy against Clemson's Cordrea Tankersley.
