OKLAHOMA CITY, Sporting Alert – College football scores from the Big 12 this past weekend – Oct. 10 – and it seems as though things are slowly shaping up to be a two-horse race.
No. 2 TCU and No. 3 Baylor stayed undefeated in college football after Week 6, but did so in contrasting styles.
At the same time, No. 10 Oklahoma were shocked by Texas, and Sooners head coach Bob Stoops took a beating on social media.
Trevone Boykin Does It Again
It took another monster performance from Heisman Trophy candidate Trevone Boykin to pull the second ranked Horned Frogs out of deep trouble and earned a 52-45 win over Kansas State.
TCU (6-0, 2-0 Big 12) scored the opening touchdown of the game, but found itself trailing 35-17 at halftime, as the Wildcats scored 28 points in the second quarter.
Boykin threw for 301 yards and two touchdowns and ran for another 124 yards and two more scores to help stop what looked like a major upset.
With his team down 42-37 and 7:55 left in the game, Boykin ran for two scores, including a 69 yard TD to put his team ahead 45-42.
Kansas State used a field goal to tie up the score at 45-45, but Boykin found Josh Doctson from 55-yards with 1:10 left in the game to finally put the game out of reach from the visitors, much to the disappointment of their fans.
Too Easy For The Baylor Bears
It was more straightforward, however, for Baylor (5-0, 2-0 Big 12) which flattened a hapless Kansas side 66-7 in Lawrence, Kansas.
This certainly wasn’t a fair battle on the day, as even the 410 lbs tight end LaQuan McGowan found a way into the end zone during the rout.
Quarterback Seth Russell passed for three touchdowns and ran for another score for the Bears, who rattled up 644 total yards in the game.
Russell went 18 of 27 in threw for 246 yards, while Jarrett Stidham also got involved after completing 9 of 10 on passes for 117 yards and two touchdowns.
Shock Linwood ran for 135 yards and a score and Corey Coleman had seven catches for 108 yards and two touchdowns for Baylor which faces West Virginia next time out.
The Jayhawks (0-5) are yet to win a game this season, which is not really surprising, seeing that they are allowing 45.4 points per game and scoring just 19.0 per game.
Meanwhile, Week 6 saw No. 10 Oklahoma (4-1, 1-1 Big 12) staggering to a big 24-17 defeat to the unranked Texas (2-4, 1-2) in the Red River Showdown.
No. 21 Oklahoma State (6-0, 3-0 Big 12) squeezed out a 33-26 win over West Virginia for its sixth straight win on the season, while improving to 3-0 in Big 12 standings.
Texas Tech battered Iowa State, 66-31 in another league battle.
