ARLINGTON, Texas -- Patrick Mahomes had another stellar game for Texas Tech in an NFL stadium. Jordan 4s For Sale . The Red Raiders now wait to find out if the dual-threat quarterback stays for his senior season or leaves early for the NFL draft.In what might have been his last college game, Mahomes threw for 586 yards and matched a career high with six touchdown passes as Texas Tech won its season finale 54-35 over Baylor on Friday night.Im just focused on we got the win and celebrating with my teammates, Mahomes said. Ill get a little bit of a break to go home and enjoy my family and friends, and then Ill talk with Coach Kingsbury, talk to my family, and figure out whats the best decision.Mahomes completed 30 of 46 passes in the season finale and finished the season with 5,052 yards passing -- a national-leading 421 per game for the Red Raiders (5-7, 3-6 Big 12). He became only third FBS player with multiple seasons of more than 5,000 total yards,Red Raiders coach Kliff Kingsbury said the next step is determining Mahomes potential draft process and that they would submit this weekend to begin that process.I know what Id like to tell him, Kingsbury said, with a smile. If the money is right and he needs to go, do that. If its not, if theres some way we can improve and improve his skill set and his talent, then hell come back and well do it again.The two teams combined for 1,300 total yards (666 for the Red Raiders, 634 for the Bears). Both had two 100-yard receivers, and Baylors Terence Williams ran for 147 yards and two touchdowns.Mahomes also threw six TDs against Baylor in the Dallas Cowboys stadium two years ago.Baylor (6-5, 3-5) has lost five in a row since starting 6-0 to get bowl eligible and reaching No. 8 in the AP poll.When we were 6-0, I didnt feel comfortable going into the last half of the season, acting head coach Jim Grobe said. Because I knew we had a lot of things going on and swirling around outside the program that could affect us.Bears freshman quarterback Zach Smith was 30-of-46 passing for 377 yards with three touchdowns and an interception in his second start since senior Seth Russells ankle surgery.Texas Tech led 34-7 midway through the second quarter after Mahomes 80-yard pass to Keke Coutee, who finished with eight catches for 221 yards. Coutee made the catch near midfield and spun away from the grasp of a defender.Mahomes had thrown an 81-yard TD to Quan Shorts on his previous pass, and earlier, a 40-yard score to Dylan Cantrell immediately after a Bears fumble. The 80- and 81-yard TDs both came on the first plays after Baylor had been stopped on fourth down.He can keep the plays alive, and he always keeps his eyes downfield, Baylor linebacker Aiavion Edwards said. If you give you any time at all, hes going to find an open target, and most likely deep.And fast.THE TAKEAWAYBaylor: The Bears now have their longest losing streak since dropping nine in a row. They lost their last eight games of the 2007 season and former coach Art Briles debut in 2008 against Wake Forest, when Baylor acting head coach Jim Grobe coached the Demon Deacons.Texas Tech: The strong finish to end a three-game losing streak at least eases the sting of going into a long offseason, especially after that woeful 66-10 loss at Iowa State the previous week.MAHOMES 5KMahomes joined former Texas Tech QB Graham Harrell (2007-08) and former Houston QB Case Keenum (2008-09, 11) with over 5,000 total yards more than once. Mahomes had 5,337 yards this season while accounting for 53 TDs (41 passing, 12 rushing).BAYLOR NOTESBaylor had two receivers with at least 10 catches for the first time in school history. Ishmael Zamora (155 yards, one TD) and KD Cannon (132 yards, two TDs) each had 12 catches. ... The Bears had four turnovers (three lost fumbles and an interception).

CHICAGO -- Fans hoping to see the Cubs play in the World Series for the first time since 1945 are finding a seat could cost them more than what their grandparents paid for their houses.The euphoria from Saturday nights victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers gave way Monday to the realization that history doesnt come cheap.Wrigley Field box seats on ticket-selling sites such as StubHub were $50,000 and up, with one seller asking $100,000 for a seat and another asking for just under $1 million. But there are lots of box seat tickets in the $5,000 to $10,000 range. Tickets to just get into the park and stand behind those with actual seats were going for more than $2,200 each. List prices for World Series tickets at Wrigley range from $85 to $565, according to Major League Baseball figures.World Series tickets are costing a lot more in Cleveland, too -- well above the $83 to $750 list price range that MLB provided for Progressive Field -- but are not as expensive as those in Chicago. And there are indications that Cubs fans, getting a look at what they would pay at Wrigley versus Progressive, are buying two tickets: one for a plane and one for a game.Ticket brokers were being flooded with calls from fans looking for tickets and, as of Monday, they were willing to pay as much as $12,000, said Dan Makras of Classic Tickets in Chicago. But he said prices might climb because Cubs fans are proving to be reluctant to sell no matter how much money theyre offered.People have waited so long for this, he said.How long? Well, the last time the Cubs were in the World Series, a ticket in the upper grandstand was $6.That pent-up desire might explain why more than 2.6 million people -- about the population of Chicago -- signed up for a drawing for a chance to buy the few thousand tickets the Cubs are now selling themselves.Fans with more creativity than luck or money are making some unusual pitches to pry tickets from the hands of theirr owners.

Rental for a week is about $9,000, said Coffman, who grew up near Chicago. Not only that, but her sister owns a ski cabin near Lake Tahoe and would be willing to sweeten the offer.If someone wants to make it a whole tour of California, we could do that, Coffman said.Jesse Altig, a firefighter in Portland, Oregon, who grew up watching Cubs games on television with his dad in the 1980s, also took to Craigslist. He placed an ad offering to take whoever gives him a ticket on a tour that includes Mt. Hood, the coast of the Pacific Ocean and the fire station where he works.I am a regular guy with a family and mortgage and these prices for tickets are kind of astronomical, Altig said. Maybe theres somebody looking for an experience versus a monetary gain.Some Chicago fans apparently are going with Plan B and heading to Cleveland.Cameron Popp of StubHub said a quarter of the tickets being sold on the site for Game 1 in Cleveland on Tuesday are being paid for with credit cards associated with Illinois ZIP codes. In comparison, only about 2 percent of the sales to Game 3 at Wrigley are coming from Ohio.No wonder. Papp said the average ticket price for Game 1 is about $1,000.Such a bargain does not tempt Tom Wilbeck of Chicago.Tickets to Wrigley are three times as much and I asked myself if the experience is three times as cool, said Wilbeck, who is willing to go as high as $20,000 for two Chicago at-home tickets. And the answer is yes. So many people died wishing the Cubs would win the World Series at Wrigley and you cant let this pass you by.---Associated Press writer Mark Gillispie contributed to this report from Cleveland.
