Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) -
BAYLOR: The Bears (3-0) came out of their bye week and dismantled ULM, 70-7,
to remain unbeaten. Bryce Petty had four touchdown passes and ran in a score
in the victory. Petty went 18-for-27 for 351 yards and Antwan Goodley caught
five passes for 156 yards and two scores for the Bears, who have won their
first three games of the season by a combined score of 209-23. They currently
lead the nation in total offense (751.3) and scoring offense (69.7), while
ranking second in scoring defense (7.7) as they have simply dominated on both
sides of the ball. Against ULM, Baylor piled up five first-quarter touchdowns
to grab a 35-0 lead after 15 minutes of play. The Bears totaled 781 yards,
despite controlling the ball for a little less than 27 minutes. Lache
Seastrunk finished the game with 156 yards on 10 carries. Baylor has off next
week and will start Big 12 action on Oct. 5 at home against West Virginia
IOWA STATE: The Cyclones (0-2) were idle this past weekend, their second open
date in a three-week span. After opening the season with narrow home losses to
Northern Iowa (28-20) and Iowa (27-21), they'll travel to Tulsa on Thursday
for their first road tilt.
KANSAS: It wasn't pretty, but the Jayhawks managed to notch a 13-10 win over
Louisiana Tech to improve to 2-1. Matthew Wyman's 52-yard field goal as time
expired was the difference in the contest. Kansas, which finished just 1-11 a
season ago with the lone victory coming against South Dakota State (31-17) in
the opener, was led by quarterback Jake Heaps who converted 28-of-46 passes
for 279 yards and a score, but he was also picked off twice in the decision.
Tony Pierson recorded nine catches for 82 yards. KU never led until Wyman's
last-second kick, which followed two Louisiana Tech fumbles inside the five-
yard line in the fourth quarter. The walk-off win was the Jayhawks' first
since 2005, and the 50-yard field goal was the school's first since 2009.
Kansas will take a break from game action this week and then will host Texas
Tech on Oct. 5.
KANSAS STATE: The Wildcats fell to 2-2 with Saturday's 31-21 setback at Texas.
Tyler Lockett had 13 catches for a school-record 237 receiving yards, but his
efforts were not enough to give K-State its sixth consecutive victory in the
head-to-head series with the Longhorns. Running back John Hubert scored twice
on the ground, although he finished with just 41 rushing yards on 12 carries.
Jake Waters completed 19-of-30 passes for 275 yards to go along with a rushing
TD, but he faced constant pressure in the pocket and was sacked four times.
Outside of Lockett, Waters had only 38 passing yards to other targets on the
day. The Wildcats fell behind 17-0 early, then trailed 24-7 after fumbling
away their opening possession of the third quarter. KSU will get a bye this
week and will have two weeks to prepare for its Oct. 5 road tilt at Oklahoma
OKLAHOMA: The No. 14 Sooners (3-0) were idle this week. They'll travel to
Notre Dame on Saturday for a nationally-televised showdown with the 22nd-
ranked Fighting Irish.
OKLAHOMA STATE: The 11th-ranked Cowboys (3-0) were off this week. Up next,
they'll face West Virginia on the road on Saturday afternoon.
TCU: The Horned Frogs got the weekend off. They fell to 1-2 with a loss to
Texas Tech on Sept. 12, and they'll try to rebound at home against SMU this
TEXAS: Johnathan Gray rushed for 141 yards and two touchdowns as the Texas
Longhorns earned a 31-21 win in the Big 12 opener against the Kansas State
Wildcats at Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium. The Longhorns snapped a five-game
losing streak in the series to beat the Wildcats for the first time since
2003. David Ash completed 14-of-25 pass attempts for 166 yards and a touchdown
for Texas (2-2, 1-0 Big 12). However, he was forced to leave the game at
halftime to be evaluated for a head injury and did not return. He also missed
the previous game with concussion-like symptoms. Case McCoy came on and threw
for 59 yards on 5-of-9 passing. Kendall Sanders caught Ash's lone touchdown
pass and finished with three catches for 80 yards. Marcus Johnson had five
receptions for 70 yards. Texas finished with 452 yards of total offense and
converted on 9-of-18 third down attempts. Texas had four sacks in the game
while Kansas State had just one. The Longhorns are idle this coming weekend,
and they'll travel to Iowa State on Oct. 3.
TEXAS TECH: The 24th-ranked Red Raiders improved to 4-0 with Saturday's 33-7
home win over Texas State. Davis Webb had two touchdown passes but was just
19-of-43 and was intercepted twice. Still, he did throw for 310 yards for the
Red Raiders (4-0), who have won every game by double digits and own the
nation's No. 4 passing offense (408.5). He took over for starter Baker
Mayfield early in the second quarter, although Mayfield did return late in the
fourth to finish 14-of-20 for 124 yards and an interception. Jace Amaro had
nine catches for 86 yards, while Bradley Marquez and Eric Ward each caught a
score in the win. By game's end, TTU had outgained Texas State, 552-240, to
take a 3-0 lead in the head-to-head series. Ryan Bustin had four field goals
and the Red Raiders defense allowed only 232 total yards. Tech has off next
week before a Big 12 matchup at Kansas.
WEST VIRGINIA: The Mountaineers dropped to 2-2 with Saturday's lopsided 37-0
setback at Maryland. Redshirt freshman quarterback Ford Childress, who was
quite impressive in his collegiate debut against Georgia State a week earlier,
struggled in this one. He completed only 11-of-22 passes for 62 yards and two
interceptions on the day. Along with those two picks, Ronald Carswell fumbled
a punt as WVU found itself trailing, 30-0, at the half. The Terrapins
effectively ran out the clock in the second half under steady rainfall to snap
the Mountaineers' seven-game winning streak in the head-to-head series.
Dreamius Smith finished with 74 yards on 12 carries for West Virginia, but
with Maryland building a comfortable lead and the weather impacting the game,
the ground game was essentially negated. WVU hosts Oklahoma State this
