Conditions in Fort Worth for last night’s Baylor-TCU game were less than ideal. The wet, windy and cold elements facilitated a scoreless second half and sent the two high-scoring teams to overtime knotted at 14-14. The Horned Frogs would go on to win, 28-21, in overtime to eliminate any hope for a Bears’ national-title.
But things could have played out differently had TCU punter Ethan Perry not averted potential disaster in the fourth quarter. After dropping a snap, Perry was forced to make lemonade out of lemons — all while Baylor’s 6-foot-9 wrecking ball Shawn Oakman beared down on him.
Certainly an unenviable task.
