Baylor 28, Texas 7

Credit the Bears’ defense in this one. This was an even bigger battle of defensive stops than ISU-Okie State with the lone touchdown coming off of a blocked field goal by Baylor. The first touchdown came three plays after a successful fake punt by the Bears on a 30-yard bomb to Antwan Goodley. It was all but over after that as Baylor had less trouble moving the ball.

Bryce Petty had just 7-of-22 with 111 yards and 2 touchdowns, but Shock Linwood saved the day with 148 yards on 28 carries and a touchdown.

TCU 37, Oklahoma 33

Without question the best game in the Big 12 and one of the best in the nation. TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin edged out the competition with a 20-for-38 day in the air for 318 yards, 2 touchdowns, and a pick. He also added 77 yards on 22 carries. Honestly, both teams mirrored each other offensively (TCU, OU passing: 318, 309; TCU, OU rushing: 151, 152).

TCU overcame 12 penalties and an additional turnover, but they held on after back-and-forth action, break into the AP’s top 10, and will play Baylor for a shot at real contention for the College Football Playoff.

West Virginia 33, Kansas 14

The Mountaineers had a 26-0 lead at halftime. How offensively hapless is Kansas? They went 3-for-17 on third downs, were held to 9 first downs and 176 total yards, were outrushed 255-65, suffered 11 penalties, and even had the aid of 3 turnovers by West Virginia.

Kansas State 45, Texas Tech 13

How great is Jake Waters? He completed 24-of-31 passes for 290 yards and 4 touchdowns, and had another score going 105 yards on 17 carries. If there was any fairness in the world, Waters deserves a serious look at Heisman contention.
