Texas won 58-14. (Photo by Brian Bahr/Getty Images)Texas is destroying No. 12 Baylor, 17-0, after the first quarter. The score is ugly, but not as ugly as the bench-clearing incident which just occurred. After Baylor reserve quarterback Lynx Hawthorne tossed an interception, the red-shirt junior chased down Texas DB Duke Thomas, who recorded the pick. Hawthorne slammed Thomas down near the Longhorns’ sideline, and some UT players took offense. In the videos below, you can see Texas safety Kevin Vaccaro (No. 18 in white) leave the bench and fall on top of Hawthorne. This resulted in a 15-yard penalty, but more significantly, served as the beginning of all hell breaking loose.Baylor players sprinted from the far sideline to join the fray. While it didn’t look like any punches were thrown, the two teams did scuffle and trade a lot of angry words. Some players had to be held back. 18 off the bench for Texas & PJ Locke shoving QB down after play standing over him. Almost got ugly in Waco. https://t.co/RjEkVxYco7— Cole Cubelic (@colecubelic) December 5, 2015Here is the Baylor-Texas (kinda) brawl. https://t.co/xdne86QhnJ— Dr Cork Gaines (@CorkGaines) December 5, 2015Amazingly, Vaccaro’s penalty was the lone one assessed after this near-melee. Things have since settled back to normal in Waco.last_img
