Taylor Potts threw a pair of touchdown passes to Lyle Leong less than two minutes apart midway through the third quarter, and the defense made a goal-line stand in the final minutes, giving Texas Tech a 20-13 victory over Baylor on Saturday night.
Playing in front of a heavily pro-Tech crowd at Cowboys Stadium, the Red Raiders (8-4, 5-3 Big 12) scored their fewest points in a victory since beating Texas A&M 12-0 in November 2001. It was the third-fewest points in a victory in coach Mike Leach's 10-year tenure.
Baylor (4-8, 1-7) let senior quarterback Blake Szymanski start his final game and he nearly pulled off the upset. He kept the Bears close all game, then had them at first-and-goal from the 10 late in the fourth quarter, but Szymanski threw an incompletion on fourth down at the 5.
