The winningest football season in Baylor history ended with the Bears at No. 13 in both final college polls Tuesday.

Baylor (11-2), which won its first Big 12 championship but fell to Central Florida in the Fiesta Bowl, finished seven spots behind No. 6 Oklahoma (11-2) in The Associated Press and the coaches’ postseason polls. Oklahoma State (10-3) was 17th and Texas A&M (9-4) 18th.

For Baylor, the No. 13 spot in the final AP poll matched the placement of the 2011 team led by Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III. Only in 1951 (ninth), 1956 (11th), 1960 (12th) and 1986 (12th) has a Baylor team finished with a loftier final placement in the AP poll than the 2013 team.

Although unranked, Big 12 members Texas Tech (8-5) and Kansas State (8-5) earned votes in both final polls. North Texas (9-4) was unranked but received two votes in the final coaches’ poll.
