Season summaryEdit

Nov. 29 vs. TCUEdit

"The game [that] decided the local championship and was witnessed by the largest crowd ever seen on Carroll field" began with a first half that "was the most spectacular ever played on a local gridiron." In that twenty-minute first half, each team's defense held the other's offense scoreless. The game began with TCU receiving the kickoff and advanced from their 20-yard line to Baylor's 15 when the latter recovered a fumble. Baylor's own drive advanced to TCU's 40-yard line, but likewise fumbled. TCU's next possession brought them to the Baylor 2, but they couldn't convert and Baylor got a turnover on downs. Baylor also could not convert and TCU got the ball forty yards back by a punt, but returned it to the Baylor 5 before fumbling again; Baylor again had to punt, as did TCU, and the half ended scoreless. In the 30-minute second half, TCU scored three touchdowns and made the first and third tries, for seventeen points, while Baylor struggled on defense and offense.
