PHOTO: Baylor Holiday Bowl ring shorts UCLA final touchdown
Baylor's Holiday Bowl rings include a score that omits Brett Hundley's final touchdown pass for UCLA.
According to the Baylor football Twitter account, the jewelry below appears to be the commemorative ring from Baylor's 49-26 victory over UCLA in the Holiday Bowl. As you can see, the score on the ring is 49-19. It could be a mistake, but ignoring the Bruins' final touchdown could be the Bears' way of protesting a controversial call that was ruled a score in the final seconds of play.
With eight seconds remaining, trailing 49-19, UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley completed a 29-yard pass to Logan Sweet at the five-yard line. Sweet then fought through two tacklers and stretched for the goal line as he fell to the ground and time expired. Officials ruled the play a touchdown, but Baylor fans argue he was down at the one-yard line.
It's an arrogant move, for sure. But it is the kind you can get away with after rushing for 306 yards in a rout of the Pac-12 runner-up.
