Bryce Petty threw three touchdowns and ran for two more as No. 4 Baylor stayed undefeated, overcoming its first double-digit deficit of the season in a 63-34 victory over Texas Tech on Saturday night.
The Bears (9-0, 6-0), even without several key offensive players, stretched their school-record winning streak to 13 games. They are the outright Big 12 leader after No. 23 Texas suffered its first conference loss earlier in the day, and are one of six undefeated FBS teams.
Shock Linwood, effectively the Bears' third-string running back, ran 29 times for 187 yards and a touchdown while Devin Chafin, another redshirt freshman, had 11 carries for 100 yards and two TDs. Levi Norwood had TD catches of 40 and 58 yards, and also returned a punt 58 yards for a score.
Texas Tech (7-4, 4-4) lost its fourth straight game since a 7-0 start for first-year coach Kliff Kingsbury.
