WACO, Texas – BYU linebacker Payton Wilgar picked off Baylor quarterback Gerry Bohanon in the end zone to prevent the Bears from scoring a first quarter touchdown.
The Bears hosted the No. 19 Cougars at McLane Stadium in Waco, Texas on Saturday, October 16.
With 6:55 remaining in the opening quarter, Bohanon and the Bears went for it on 4th & 4 from the BYU six-yard line rather than kick a short field goal.
Bohanon tossed a ball into the end zone before Wilgar leaped into the air for the interception.
I'm shocked this is Baylor's 1st pick! Terrible decision to throw this ball! Horrible.
