Heading to Stillwater, the Baylor Bears possessed the No. 4 program in the nation. Looking to secure a spot in the final BCS National Championship, the Bears prepared to face the No. 10 Oklahoma State Cowboys. However, the home team quickly raced ahead of the visiting team to build a sizable fourth quarter lead.

Holding a 35-10 lead early in the fourth quarter, the O-State defense found themselves making a goal line stand. With the crowd noise rising, the ball was snapped towards Bryce Petty. Unable to secure the snap, the ball sailed several yards behind the quarterback. As a chase ensued, Petty proved unable to retain the loose ball. The failed opportunity led to the a scoop and score for Tyler Patmon.

Scooping up the ball, Patmon and a handful of other defenders ran the entire length of the field. The 78-yard fumble return put the game squarely out of reach as Oklahoma State went on to win the battle.
