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.
