RG3 was the first to congratulate TCU on big win

Baylor and TCU are locked in one of the most intense rivalries in college football, and Friday night’s 28-21 double-overtime thriller was a statement win for the Horned Frogs.

So it’s great to see a Baylor legend such as Robert Griffin III put his rooting interests aside and give credit where credit is due. In an outstanding display of sportsmanship, RG3 instantly congratulated TCU on its huge win in Fort Worth:

Griffin III won the Heisman Trophy for the Bears in 2011, a year in which Baylor beat TCU by a score of 50-48 in Waco. The schools have now split four meetings since RG3’s departure for the NFL.
