Big 12

October 15, 2006|From the Associated Press

at No. 6 Texas 63, Baylor 31: Colt McCoy set a Texas record with six touchdown passes, and the Longhorns (6-1, 3-0) recovered from an early 10-point deficit to roll over the Bears (3-4, 2-1) at Austin. McCoy's sixth scoring pass, a 50-yard strike to Limas Sweed in the fourth quarter, broke the school record of five held by James Brown (1994) and Chris Simms (2001). McCoy finished with a career-high 275 yards. Sweed and Billy Pittman each caught two touchdowns.

No. 21 Nebraska 21, at Kansas State 3: The Cornhuskers (6-1, 3-0) converted two fourth-down plays, one on a fake field goal, to spark them to victory over the Wildcats (4-3, 1-2) at Manhattan. Nebraska ended a four-game road losing streak to Kansas State and won the 800th game in the program's history. Kansas State had not lost at home to Nebraska since a 39-3 defeat on Oct. 5, 1996. Nebraska's defense gave up only 19 rushing yards.

at Colorado 30, Texas Tech 6: The Buffaloes (1-6, 1-2) ended a 10-game losing streak, and Coach Dan Hawkins earned his first win after defeating the Red Raiders (4-3, 1-2) at Boulder. Mason Crosby had three field goals, including 56- and 53-yarders. Crosby has 12 field goals from 50 yards or more in his career, and it's the third time he has kicked two of that distance in the same game.

Oklahoma State 42, at Kansas 32: Bobby Reid threw five touchdown passes, ran for another score and set a school record with 457 yards of total offense in leading the Cowboys (4-2, 1-1) over the Jayhawks (3-4, 0-3) at Lawrence. Adarius Bowman was Reid's favorite target, with 13 catches for a school-record 300 yards and four touchdowns.
