Gerry Bohanon had a hard time finding the words to describe just how he felt after 18th-ranked Baylor ran over Oklahoma, ending the fourth-ranked Sooners’ nation’s-best 17-game winning streak.

The hard-nosed quarterback does know what it means going forward for the resurgent Bears.

“I know we’ll keep going,” Bohanon said. “I know that was just motivation for what we can do, and we can be as a team.”

Bohanon threw a touchdown pass and ran for two scores in the fourth quarter and Baylor’s defense harassed both Oklahoma quarterbacks in a 27-14 win Saturday that kept the Bears in contention for a spot in the Big 12 championship game, a week after an unexpected loss at struggling TCU.

“It’s controlled confidence. You know, we put in the work and we expected results,” said linebacker Terrel Bernard, who had nine tackles and two sacks for Baylor (8-2, 5-2 Big 12, CFP No. 13). “We didn’t play up to our standard last week. And, we corrected some things on tape. We put in a great game plan and came out here and executed.”
