Baylor coaches disagree with regents on what Briles knew

And the stand featured black shirts with #CAB across the chest.

Before the game started, there also was a social media backlash directed against Baylor after an ESPN reporter tweeted that Bears players were wearing all black uniforms to protest Briles' termination.

WACO, Texas (AP) - Kyle Hicks spun away from two tacklers, and broke away from another while weaving through defenders.

And for TCU, well, we're still not sure if we can get a read on the Horned Frogs.

TCU got the ball back to start the second half and produced yet again, opening up the third quarter with a 95 yard drive that ended with the fourth Hicks score of the afternoon.

That's in stark contrast to what the regents say Briles told them.

TCU RB Kyle Hicks (No. 21) had five touchdowns vs. Baylor.

Former Baylor coach Art Briles is supported by his assistant coaches. "We came out kind of firing and let off the gas a little bit".

While TCU (4-4, 2-3 Big 12) is still trying to get bowl eligible, the Bears (6-1, 3-1) are still in control of their Big 12 fate despite coming off their first loss of the season. The tweets were not a move that head coach Jim Grobe said he was aware of beforehand, but he would not want to "step in the way" of his coaches speaking their minds. "But, obviously not. I didn't think we played good in any aspect defensively, run or pass". Foreman has rushed for at least 124 yards in each of the eight games he's played for the 5-4 Longhorns after running for the third-most yards in a game in school history.

Both teams scored touchdowns in the first minute of the game, evoking thoughts of a sequel to the 61-58 game two years ago when Baylor handed TCU its only loss that season.

The Horned Frogs are feeling just fine right now, though, walking away with a 62-22 W and giving the Bears their second loss.

Ranthony Texada returned an interception 28 yards for a score to make it 31-7 early in the second quarter.

Added Grobe: "I do think that these last two weeks have not been good on the field". That's just the bottom line. The much-maligned Brandon Hatfield went 2-2 on field goals, though his struggles last week certainly played into a more aggressive play-calling style on the Baylor side of the field - which few fans complained about. The Bears have more yards rushing than passing with the RB trio of Terrance Williams, Shock Linwood and JaMycal Hasty, and QB Seth Russell. He collapsed on the sidelines a short time later, was put on a stretcher, and carted off. The Bears also had a number of inopportune penalties-three unsportsmanlike conduct calls, a facemask, and a pass interference-all gifted TCU 15 yards.

The Bears will fall hard in the AP Top 25 following their second consecutive loss since peaking at No. 8, and could conceivably drop all the way out of the poll. Rival Oklahoma State is setting up a showdown with the Sooners in the season finale and picked up its fifth straight win.

While all hope seems to be lost on Baylor - and that seemed to be the theme of the press conference's questions - that's not how the team is taking this loss before heading to Norman, Oklahoma for its next game against the Sooners.
