Week 7 Top Performers: Baylor's Petty, UW's Thompson, OK State's Hill
Baylor’s McLane Stadium was bedlam Saturday as quarterback Bryce Petty connected with Corey Coleman for a 25-yard play-action pass to tie the game at 58 in the fourth quarter. The touchdown capped a 21-point rally as the Bears entered the final minutes of play against TCU. Petty’s job was done and the victory now rested on the legs of kicker Chris Callahan, who chipped a 28-yard field goal to seal the victory for the Bears. A sea of Baylor green and gold flooded the field as the celebration ensued.

Linebacker Shaq Thompson continued to display his versatility Saturday scoring Washington’s first touchdown of the game on a 100-yard fumble return against California. Thompson led the defense, which held Cal to only one score after averaging 42 points per game this season. He now has four touchdowns on the season including one rushing.
Oklahoma State escaped a late Kansas comeback as Tyreek Hill sped to the end zone for the game’s final touchdown with six minutes left in the fourth quarter. Hill’s 99-yard kickoff lifted the Cowboys to a 27-20 win against the Jayhawks. He also led the team with four receptions for 52 yards. Hill returned a 97-yard kickoff against Iowa State last week.
