Published

on

No. 21 Texas 17, WVU 13

Texas (5-2, 4-2 Big 12) stuffed the West Virginia (4-3, 3-3) rushing attack all game. Leddie Brown, the Big 12’s second-leading rusher, had just 47 yards on 15 carries. The Mountaineers also failed on two fourth downs inside the Texas 20-yard line in the fourth quarter. UT true freshman Bijan Robinsons ran for 113 yards.

WVU will host TCU next week, Texas is off.

No. 18 Oklahoma 62, Kansas 9

Oklahoma (5-2, 4-2 Big 12) ran for 200 yards and passed for 340 as Kansas (0-7, 0-6) allowed 45 or more points for the fifth time this season.

Both teams are off next week.

TCU 34, Texas Tech 18

The Horned Frogs (3-3 Big 12) scored 17 third-quarter points to get past the Red Raiders (2-5, 1-5 Big 12). TCU quarterback Max Duggan only passed for 73 yards but ran for 154 and three touchdowns. As a team, TCU rushed for 270 yards to TTU’s 77.

TCU will travel to Morgantown and Texas Tech will host Baylor next week.

No. 14 Oklahoma State 20, Kansas State 18

The Cowboys (5-1, 4-1 Big 12) scored all 20 of their points in the second half to get past Kansas State and just barely avoid a second-straight loss. The Wildcats out-gained Oklahoma State 370-256, but turned the ball over twice and had to settle for two field goals early in the game. OSU running back Chuba Hubbard carried the ball just six times and left the game early with an injury.

Both teams are off next week.

No. 17 Iowa State 38, Baylor 31

Baylor (1-4 Big 12) started the game strongly but ran out of gas early as Iowa State (5-2, 5-1 Big 12) scored 28 second-half points to get the win. Brock Purdy and Charlie Brewer threw five combined interceptions, but each also had three touchdown passes. ISU running back Breece Hall had another outstanding performance with 133 yards and two touchdowns on 31 carries. He leads the conference with 1,034 yards and 13 touchdowns.

Baylor travels to Lubbock next week and Iowa State is off.
