Tostitos Fiesta Bowl 2014: Baylor Bears score again thanks to Levi Norwood TD (GIF)

Early on in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, it was looking like the Baylor Bears were going to be on the wrong side of a blowout by the UCF Knights. But after Storm Johnson got two quick touchdowns out of the way and Blake Bortles decided to start throwing interceptions to everyone, the Bears are back in the game and have nearly tied things up before halftime.

Baylor’s first score of the game came thanks to a Bryce Petty quarterback sneak and the second came courtesy of the gunslinger’s arm as he hooked up with Levi Norwood to tie things up 14-14.


Or so you’d think. Rather than try for the game-tying extra point, the Bears attempted a two-point conversion that was unsuccessful and are now down 20-13 in a game they’re making more complicated than it has to be. The game is far from over, but the Bears continue to shoot themselves in the foot over and over again.
