The Baylor Bears Holiday Bowl Championship ring was unveiled and the score that appears on it is different from the final score. Due to some horrific officiating, the final score was 49-26 after the final play was ruled a UCLA touchdown.
As you can see, Bruins wide receiver Logan Sweet is clearly down before the end zone, but the referees decided to call it a touchdown. I love the trolling job done by the Baylor Bears and head coach Art Briles. Nothing like taking a shot at some brutal officiating and being able to pass it off as a “mistake” so you don’t get in trouble.

The Baylor Bears took on the UCLA Bruins in the 2012 Holiday Bowl, and the Bears trampled all over the Bruins, winning the game 49-26.
But the Bears’ bowl championship rings tell a different story. If you didn’t watch the December game, you might think that Baylor won the game 49-19 based on the inscription on the rings. The entire team’s rings have an incorrect score on them...
They say that history is written by the victors. At Baylor, that includes bowl games.
Baylor won last years Bridgepoint Education Holiday Bowl over UCLA by the official score of 49-26.
But the bowl rings Baylor ordered are inscribed with 49-19 as the final score. One of the rings is pictured on the football programs official Twitter account, @BUFootball.
