WACO - Sophomore Dana Larsen scored the game-winning goal in the 104th minute to lead Baylor (9-3-1, 2-2 Big 12) to a 1-0 win in double overtime over No. 22 Colorado (5-6-1, 1-2-1 Big 12) at Betty Lou Mays Field on Sunday afternoon. With the win, the Bears are off to their best start since a recording a 10-win season in 2000.

"I am so proud of this team," head coach Marci Jobson said. "Every single player gave it everything they had and we never gave up. If you keep fighting, good things will happen and it did for us today."

The win was the first over a ranked team since a 2-1 victory over No. 22 Texas on Sept. 26, 2005. It also keeps Baylor's undefeated home mark in tact at 8-0-1 on the year.

Larsen's goal was her sixth on the season, while Lisa Sliwinski recorded her team-leading fifth assist.

Colorado controlled the first half, registering a 7-3 shot advantage, but Baylor's defense kept the game scoreless at the break.

The Bears picked it up in the second half, outshooting the Buffaloes, 9-7. Freshman Selby Polley nearly put BU ahead in the 69th minute when she found herself one-on-one with the goalkeeper, only to see Annie Brunner come up with the big save.

In the 79th minute, Hannah Dismuke's corner kick found Sliwinski's feet and she fired a shot that was blocked by a CU defender and cleared out, negating a near goal.

The two teams remained tied after regulation, and with 20 seconds left in the first overtime, Polley had another chance from seven yards out, but her shot was sent just wide.

With the game still scoreless, Sliwinski chased down a Colorado defender and flicked a pass towards the CU goal. Brunner hesitated coming out just enough to allow Larsen to get a foot on the ball, one-touch it around Brunner and slot the ball into the back of the net for the dramatic win.

Courtney Seelhorst made six saves on the night, tying her season high she set on Friday night. The junior now has six solo shutouts on the season, while as a team, the Bears have nine.

The win was just the fourth double-overtime victory in Baylor history and the second under Jobson. The last one came on Oct. 18, 2009 with a 2-1 result over Kansas.

The Bears will hit the road for a pair of rivalry games, beginning with No. 10 Texas A&M (9-3, 2-1) on Friday, Oct. 8 at 7:30 p.m. in College Station. BU will then face Texas (7-3-2, 0-2-1) on Sunday, Oct. 10 at 7:00 p.m. in Austin.
