Mason had scoring runs of 7, 3 and 1 yards before bursting up the middle on a 13-yard TD that clinched the victory with 4:22 remaining. He carried the ball a staggering 46 times, an easy choice as the game's MVP. He celebrated by breaking out the familiar Heisman pose. Mason is now the Auburn single-season record-holder for all-purpose yards with 2,137; he broke the record set by Bo Jackson in 1985
Defensive back K.J. Morton notched his second and third interceptions of the season and seventh and eighth of his career in a 30-10 win against Texas to clinch the Big 12 title. The last time a Baylor player had two picks in a game was when Eddie Lackey did so on Nov. 24, 2012, against Texas Tech. Morton would've scored a touchdown on one return but officials wiped out his 60-yard return when he was penalized for celebrating before getting into the end zone.
