Brewer TD with 7 seconds left, Baylor 35-31 over Oklahoma St
WACO, Texas (AP) — Baylor quarterback Charlie Brewer started the week in concussion protocol and didn't get his usual snaps with the first-team offense in practice. And he didn't play the first three quarters against the Cowboys on Saturday.
When Brewer finally got in the game, he helped the Bears rally to beat Oklahoma State.
"It was time," coach Matt Rhule said of the decision to put Brewer in the game.
Baylor quarterback Charlie Brewer was named Big 12 offensive co-freshman of the year by the league’s coaches.
Despite not playing in the first four games and only starting the last four, Brewer completed 68.1 percent of his passes for 1,562 yards and 11 touchdowns with just four interceptions. He was named co-freshman of the year with TCU receiver Jalen Reagor.

Denzel Mims was a four-sport athlete at Daingerfield High School, and most of the skills that made him exceptional were on full display in his breakout performance for Baylor last weekend against Oklahoma.
He showed his track speed when he got behind the Oklahoma secondary for a 71-yard bomb from Zach Smith. He unveiled one of the skills that made him a district MVP in basketball when he made several leaping catches against the Sooners.
