Baylor and West Virginia played a typical high-scoring, closely-contested Big 12 football game--which was decided in a very atypical fashion. West Virginia led 7-0 early but in the second quarter Baylor came back to take a 17-7 lead. The Bears then answered the next three Mountaineer' TDs with touchdowns of their own, the last on a 4-yard Qualan Jones run, pushing the score to 37-31, setting up the PAT attempt which decided the game. John Mayers' kick was blocked and Jacoby Spells returned it for a rare 2-point defensive score, producing the three point difference in WVa's 43-40 win over Baylor. 

On the GridCard, maryalene (42) continued her hot streak, putting up a TallBoy and edging out the TB by EricCinTexas (40). Only six other players posted Qualifying Scores: btalkington20 (34), Heart of a Hooligan (33), KLC (32), MW (32), Kara (31), and ProGrid Tour winner Ricco1947 (38). KLC (69) won his first King Kong of the year.

And the LFL took the PGT to the limit 70-70, but lost on the TB, Ricco1947 (38) and MW (32) leading the way.
