The Bears defeated UCLA in the Holiday Bowl.
It’s not too often we see a misprint on a championship ring on purpose. But that’s exactly the case with Baylor, as the Bears recorded their victory over UCLA as 49-19 on a bowl ring – not 49-26 as evidenced by the final scoreboard in San Diego in late December.
So why the misprint?
UCLA scored a touchdown in the game’s final seconds, and despite replay clearly showing the receiver did not score, the review was not overturned, which made the final score 49-26.
Considering the touchdown shouldn’t have been allowed in the first place, it seems only fair Baylor got the correct score on its bowl ring.
