Baylor tallied 668 yards of total offense compared to Vanderbilt's 573.

The Bears finished with a record of 7-6. Their six-win improvement from 2017 is among the best one-year turnarounds in college football, joining Florida and Syracuse, who each improved by five wins but have yet to play their respective bowl games.

Baylor improves to 4-0 all-time in games played on December 27 (1985, 2012, 2016).
