TCU and Baylor football could be facing disciplinary actions following a second-half scuffle between the two teams on Friday in Fort Worth.
According to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram’s Mac Engel, Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby said the Big 12 Conference will conduct a review of the incident that resulted in an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for everybody on both sidelines.

While Baylor’s season has come to an end, any punishments issued by the league could have major implications for TCU — which is set to face Oklahoma in the Big 12 Championship Game in Arlington, Texas, on Dec. 2.
TCU defensive tackles Chris Bradley and Ross Blacklock and safety Nick Orr were among several Horned Frogs engulfed in the middle of the incident that delayed the game for several minutes. TCU coach Gary Patterson said on Friday that he apologized to Baylor coach Matt Rhule for his players’ actions after the game.
TCU defeated Baylor 45-22 for its third straight win over the Bears. The Horned Frogs now lead the Big 12 series between the two schools 4-2.
