WACO, Texas — Robert Griffin III ran for two touchdowns and passed for two more to lead No. 19 Baylor to a 48-24 win over Texas, capping the Bear's best regular season in 25 years and perhaps doing enough to persuade Heisman Trophy voters he's the best player in college football.

Baylor's defense, ranked among the worst in nation, gave up a 14-0 lead but forced also forced six turnovers, three of them setting up Baylor touchdowns.

Baylor fans will now wonder if Griffin has played his last home game for the Bears (9-3, 6-3 Big 12). Griffin, a fourth-year junior who has already graduated, must decide if he will leave for the NFL.

Case McCoy passed for 356 yards and three touchdowns for Texas (7-5, 4-5) but had five turnovers.
