In recent years, the gap between Baylor and Texas State seemed insurmountable. Baylor has enjoyed rankings in the AP Top 10 for three of the past five seasons, while Texas State has struggled, tallying only four wins in each of their last two seasons. However, Saturday night told a different story. The team that emerged as the superior Texas-based squad was none other than the underdogs from San Marcos. Texas State pulled off a stunning 42-31 victory over Baylor in Waco, marking their first triumph over a Power 5 team since their transition to the FBS in 2012. Baylor, even after a lackluster 6-7 season, entered the game as overwhelming favorites with a 27.5-point advantage. Yet, the Bobcats defied the odds, seizing a memorable win.
