ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Glasco Martin scored on a 4-yard run in overtime and Baylor overcame three missed field goals, including one on the last play of regulation, to become bowl eligible with a 52-45 victory over Texas Tech on Saturday.

Nick Florence threw for 396 yards and three touchdowns for the Bears (6-5, 3-5 Big 12), who didn't lead until Eddie Lackey's 55-yard interception return for a touchdown on the first play of a wild fourth quarter.

Lackey's second pick, with 1:46 left, set up Baylor at the Red Raiders 32. But Aaron Jones missed wide left on a 48-yard field-goal attempt.

After Martin's second TD run, Texas Tech (7-5, 4-5) started overtime with a holding call and two incompletions. After a 15-yard play set up fourth-and-5, Seth Doege's pass to a well-defended Eric Ward was incomplete, ending the game.

Doege threw for 359 yards with three touchdowns and three interceptions.
