Early penalty sunk Baylor vs. OU

WACO, Texas — Baylor had just one penalty in the first half. But it was costly. At the Baylor 5, Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford stuck an interception into the chest of Bears linebacker Joe Pawelek early in the first quarter.

But officials flagged cornerback Antareis Bryan for pass interference on Juaquin Iglesias at the back of the end zone, giving OU the ball at the Baylor 2. Baylor fans didn't like the call, offering up their loudest boos of the game. DeMarco Murray scored on the next play to give OU a 14-0 lead.
