WACO, Texas (AP) - Bryce Petty threw for three touchdowns and ran for two more, Shock Linwood ran for 182 yards and fifth-ranked Baylor stayed undefeated, passing its first big test with a 41-12 victory over No. 12 Oklahoma on Thursday night.

Baylor (8-0, 5-0 Big 12) scored twice in the final minute before halftime and stretched its school-record winning streak to 12 games since a loss at Oklahoma last November. The Bears are 8-0 for the first time.

Even though Baylor came in leading the nation in scoring (64 points per game) and total offense (718 yards per game) - and was outscoring opponents by an average margin of 48 points - many questioned how good the Bears were after getting into November without playing a ranked team. They have now, and they responded with an impressive victory against a team that used to routinely overwhelm them.
