Baylor defeats Red Raiders 35-24

Charlie Brewer threw for 308 yards and three touchdowns and also scored a rushing TD as the Baylor Bears became bowl-eligible with a 35-24 win over Texas Tech Saturday afternoon at AT&T Stadium.
         
The Bears (6-6, 4-5) also had a potent rushing attack, with John Lovett picking up 125 yards on 28 carries and Trestan Ebner adding 64 yards on 10 totes.

         
Trailing 17-14 at halftime, Baylor took the lead for good with a seven-play, 75-yard drive to begin the third quarter, with Brewer sneaking in from the 1-yard line. Lovett scored on a three-yard run on the Bears' next series, and then Brewer capped the scoring with his second TD strike to Denzel Mims, who finished with five catches for 65 yards.
         
Brewer was 22-of-30 for 308 yards and three TDs, and Chris Platt had his fourth career 100-yard day with 114 yards on six receptions.
         
Baylor's defense also came up big, holding the Red Raiders (5-7, 3-6) to 347 yards total and picking off passes on Tech's last two series with interceptions by Raleigh Texada and Blake Lynch to seal the deal.

Still-gimpy McLane Carter, making his first start at quarterback for Texas Tech since an ankle injury in the first half of the season opener, was 21-of-37 passing for 247 yards with two touchdowns, and two interceptions in the fourth quarter.

Carter was grimacing and walking gingerly after getting sacked on the opening drive on the game right before hitting Ja'Deion High for a 54-yard TD pass.

Soon after that, Carter left the field with a trainer but never missed a play after Baylor used more than 9 minutes on its opening 19-play drive that ended with the first of two TD catches by Denzel Mims.
