Out Cold: Baylor Puts Horns' Title Hopes On Ice, Wins 1st Big 12 Championship

AP Sports Writer
   WACO, Texas (AP) -- Bryce Petty threw touchdown passes on the first two drives of the second half for No. 9 Baylor and the Bears won their first Big 12 title and a Fiesta Bowl berth with a 30-10 victory over No. 23 Texas on Saturday.
   The final game in frigid Floyd Casey Stadium became a de facto Big 12 championship game after No. 6 Oklahoma State's lost just before they kicked off.
   Baylor (11-1, 8-1 Big 12) had never even had a winning record in the Big 12 before coach Art Briles arrived six years ago. Now the Bears have their first 11-win season and their first outright title in any league since the 1980 Southwest Conference title when Mike Singletary called Floyd Casey Stadium home.
   Petty threw for 287 yards, with TDs to Antwan Goodley and Levi Norwood after a 3-3 halftime tie. Texas quarterback Case McCoy never found the magic that lead Texas on a six-game winning streak earlier in conference play. The senior threw for only 54 yards and had two interceptions.
   Malcolm Brown ran for 131 yards for Texas (8-4, 7-2).
