Jim Grobe says he did not intend to go for it on fourth and 1 from the Baylor 24 late in the third quarter. "I was yelling, 'Punt the ball. Punt the ball,'" the coach said. The battery pack in his headset was off, so no one heard him -- and Baylor failed to get the first down on a direct snap to Terence Williams. That said, Grobe had confidence in his defense to make the fourth quarter stops that it did.

Baylor is 4-0 after a 35-24 win over Oklahoma State -- and the Bears won their league opener without big contributions from Shock Linwood or KD Cannon.

Orion Stewart's interception of Mason Rudolph on fourth and 15 all but secures victory for Baylor. The Bears are headed into October at 4-0 with two byes, Iowa State and Kansas on the schedule before visiting Texas in Week 9.

Baylor has been outplayed for most of the second half but turned away Oklahoma State twice inside the 4-yard line. Then the Bears went 99 yards, scoring on a third-and-15 pass from Seth Russell to Chris Platt. It's all about what you do with the opportunities, and the Bears have made the most of theirs. Not OSU. Baylor leads 35-24 with 5:14 to play.

Outstanding poise from Oklahoma State QB Mason Rudolph in directing a 16-play, 75-yard drive. The Cowboys converted five third downs on the march and they're 10 of 13 for the game. That's how you win on the road -- and why Rudolph is 6-0 in starts away from Stillwater since losing his debut here as a true freshman in 2014. Tied at 21 halfway through the third quarter.

You know it's going well when ... Baylor QB Seth Russell threw a pass through the hands of WR Lynx Hawthorne, but Ismael Zamora was there to snag it and race 38 yards for a TD. Bears go up 14-7.

Big play by Oklahoma State true freshman Tanner Morgan, the long snapper out of Ankeny, Iowa, who jumped on Tony Nicholson's fumble of a punt return at the 5-yard line. Before he fumbled, Nicholson made a poor decision to field Zach Sinor's punt at the 4. The damage? A touchdown for the Cowboys. All tied in Waco.

Players are returning to the field at McLane Stadium. The resumption is scheduled for 8:14 p.m. CT. Last week, Oklahoma State defensive coordinator Glenn Spencer leveraged a two-hour weather delay into success by adjusting his scheme. It might be more difficult tonight with less than two minutes expired in this game. Baylor leads 6-0.

Seven plays, 75 yards and a Terence Williams 23-yard touchdown run for Baylor on the opening drive. And before the extra point, there's lightning in the area. The players have left the field. A delay in Waco.

Coughlin picks Cowboys straight up

Can Baylor extend streak of 4-0 starts?

Entering 2016, Baylor was one of four FBS schools to start 4-0 every season since 2013, but the other three (Florida State, Oklahoma and UCLA) all failed to do so again this fall. With a win over Oklahoma State, the Bears will stand alone as the only team with an active streak of four straight 4-0 starts. Watercooler chatter (Insider)
