Last week’s scores

More from Big 12 News

Oklahoma State 45, Texas Tech 35

Texas Tech had nearly 30 more pass attempts and 20 more completions, but both teams had nearly 400 yards because Oklahoma State had bigger catches. Cowboys QB Daxx Garman helped himself by pulling away to a 45-28 lead in the middle of the 4th quarter with an 8-yard run. The Red Raiders’ defense continues to be a abysmal, but it was one hell of a fun game to watch.

Baylor 49, Iowa State 28

The Bears had no problems heading into Jack Trice Stadium and pouring it on the Cyclones. You can read more about it here.

Texas 23, Kansas 0

Montell Cozart was a pure disaster under center for Kansas, but the biggest storyline of the weekend happened on Sunday when head coach Charlie Weis was fired. It’s surprising to see it happen the way it did, but Weis probably shouldn’t have come back this season and he was clearly on thin ice entering this year. With how bad they’ve looked these past couple years, it’s a move that simply had to happen.

Kansas State 58, UTEP 28

The game wasn’t even that close. Kansas State had a 52-7 lead after the first three quarters, then the scrubs made the game closer. Kansas State is good — damn good — and were a lot sharper than their disappointing performance against Auburn.

TCU 56, SMU 0

SMU could very well be the worst team in the FBS. They’re atrocious, and Cyclones fans would love nothing more than to have them on future schedules instead of playing a much better team. Like Northern Iowa.
