WACO, Texas (KWTX) - Baylor narrowly defeated Texas Tech 27-24.

Redshirt freshman Blake Shapen started at quarterback for the Bears, starting QB Gerry Bohanon suffered a hamstring injury in the Kansas State game.

The Bears lead 17-10 at the half. After a scoreless third quarter, both teams added points on the board in the fourth.

With the win, Baylor went 7-0 at home for the first time since 2013.

If Oklahoma State defeats OU tonight, the Bears will be in the Big 12 championship game.
