Waco was a hornet’s nest to the Sooners. Just look at the Baylor meetings for the past decade | OU Sport Extra
Oklahoma 44, Baylor 34: A confident Baker Mayfield snapped the Bears on a three-game losing streak by throwing 270 yards and three touchdowns. Samaje Perine added 166 rushing yards and two touchdowns.
Oklahoma 49, Baylor 41: A Baylor team with a win terrified what was arguably the best team of the Riley era. The Bears took the lead at 31:28 at the end of the fourth quarter before OU bounced back. Caleb Kelly’s fiddly fourth quarter recovery would seal victory.
Oklahoma 34, Baylor 31: Magic used to appear after the Bears took a quick 28-3 lead. After 31-10 at halftime, OU rallied behind quarterback Jalen Hurts. Gabe Brkic’s 31-yard field goal with 1:45 minutes remaining, crowned by Nik Bonitto’s interception while diving, secured the road win.
The 2019 game will not be forgotten anytime soon. Oklahoma fought and fought its way back for the biggest comeback win in school history.
The words “Sooner Magic” were said more than once that November evening.
“You just don’t get a chance to do that very often. And having the biggest in the history of this school was very special, ”said Riley. “It was obviously a very meaningful game back then, and yes, I think it set a precedent for us to never get out of the fight.
