Baylor Captures First Big 12 Title After Win Against UT
Baylor safety Ahmad Dixon seized the postgame moment, arriving for his interview with two bags of tortilla chips made by the Fiesta Bowl sponsor as well as a sign emblazoned with Baylor logos that read “2013 Big 12 champs.”
The Waco native placed those items at the dais before answering questions about the Bears’ 30-10 victory over No. 25 Texas that made the sign’s message a reality in front of a stadium-record crowd of 51,728 in the final game played at Floyd Casey Stadium.
“This is one of the greatest things I’ve ever been a part of in my life,” Dixon said, summing up the emotions of a town and fan base that spent much of Saturday night pinching themselves after the Bears’ big win. “It was like a dream. All the seniors were up there telling each other, ‘Wow, this really happened.’ That dream became reality.”
