Dave Aranda explains reason for kicking controversial field goal

Larry Brown Sports

Baylor beat Oklahoma 27-14 on Saturday for a huge victory, one that involved some controversy. 

Baylor coach Dave Aranda kicked a field goal at the end of the game, even though his team was already up by two scores with hardly any time left. Sooners coach Lincoln Riley regarded the move as running up the score, but Aranda had his reasons for his actions.

Aranda made clear that he added the field goal specifically to earn margin of victory points, because that is an actual tiebreaker factor in determining the Big 12 champion.
