ESPN college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit was on the call for Oklahoma's big comeback win at Baylor on Saturday night. The Sooners rallied from a 21-point halftime deficit to get a massive road win over the Bears in Waco.

Jalen Hurts played poorly early, but came on strong in the second half, leading Lincoln Riley's offense on several big touchdown drives late.

Oklahoma took the lead on a field goal and picked off a Baylor pass to seal the victory late.

Herbstreit took to Twitter shortly after the game ended.

"Congratulations to Oklahoma on an unbelievable comeback win tonight at Baylor. Down 31-10 at halftime-& they fight back to tie it at 31 and hit a late FG and get a pick to seal it. Total team effort led by the poise & playmaking ability of Jalen Hurts. What a game!" he wrote.

What a game, indeed.

Oklahoma stays in the College Football Playoff race as a result of the win. Baylor probably does, too, though the Bears were already ranked quite low despite being undefeated.

The new College Football Playoff rankings will come out on Tuesday night.
