LUBBOCK, Texas — David Ash threw for three touchdowns and 264 yards to lead Texas to a 31-22 victory against No. 20 Texas Tech on Saturday.
Mike Davis had a career-high 165 yards and a career-best two touchdowns on four catches, one a 75-yarder from Ash in the second quarter for the Longhorns (7-2, 4-2 Big 12). It was the third straight win for the Longhorns and keeps them alive in the Big 12 race.
Seth Doege completed 26 of 44 passes for 329 yards for one touchdown for Texas Tech (6-3, 3-3).
Freshman Johnathan Gray got his second straight 100-yard rushing game for Texas, with 106 yards on 20 carries.
Texas Tech was down three defensive backs to injuries, and Ash didn't let up on their backups. He completed 11 of 19 passes.
No. 3 Kansas State 44, Oklahoma State 30 —In Manhattan, Kan., Collin Klein piled up more than 300 yards of offense before leaving in the third quarter with an undisclosed injury, and No. 3 Kansas State (9-0, 6-0) remained unbeaten.
Klein had thrown for 245 yards and run for 64 more before sneaking in for his 50th career rushing touchdown with 9:47 left in the third quarter. The Heisman Trophy frontrunner didn't return to the field on the Wildcats' next offensive series.
Oklahoma State's Wes Lunt also left with an injury after throwing his third interception in the third quarter. The freshman, who earlier this year missed six weeks with a knee injury, threw for 184 yards and a touchdown before giving way to Clint Chelf.
Baylor 41, Kansas 14 — In Waco, Texas, Nick Florence threw for 367 yards and three touchdowns, running back Lache Seastrunk had 194 total yards and Baylor won its first Big 12 game of the season.
Baylor (4-4, 1-4) led, 20-14, at halftime before pulling away in the second half to snap a four-game losing streak.
Florence was 26 of 42 and surpassed 3,000 yards passing for the season. The senior had touchdown passes of 11, 68 and 40 yards.
James Sims had 126 rushing yards for Kansas (1-8, 0-6), which lost its eighth in a row and 18th straight Big 12 game.
No. 14 Oklahoma 35, Iowa State 20 – In Ames, Iowa, Landry Jones threw for 405 yards and a season-high four touchdowns and No. 14 Oklahoma beat Iowa State (5-4, 2-4), moving coach Bob Stoops into a second-place tie with Bud Wilkinson on the Sooners' career win list.
Stoops posted his 145th victory with Oklahoma. He is 12 wins shy of tying Barry Switzer for the most in school history.
Brennan Clay ran for a career-best 157 yards as the Sooners bounced back from a loss to Notre Dame. Oklahoma (6-2, 4-1) has won 20 straight following a defeat in the regular season.
Jones' 20-yard TD pass to Justin Brown to open the second half put the Sooners up 21-6. Oklahoma racked up 593 yards of offense, and put the game away when Jones' 31-yard TD pass to Kenny Stills made the score 35-13 with 10:59 left.
