BOBBY REID Oklahoma State

The sophomore quarterback threw five touchdown passes, ran for another touchdown and set a school record with 457 yards of total offense in leading visiting Oklahoma State to a 42-32 victory over Kansas.

Reid passed for 411 yards and rushed for 46 more, surpassing the record of 434 yards set by Cowboys Coach Mike Gundy in 1989 against the Jayhawks. His passing total was only 18 yards shy of Gundy's school record of 429.

Reid, 6-3 and 220 pounds, completed 23 of 35 as the Cowboys rolled up 603 yards against a defense ranked 110th nationally against the pass. Adarius Bowman was Reid's favorite target, with 13 catches for a school-record 300 yards and four touchdowns.

Oklahoma State trailed, 17-0, midway through the third quarter when Reid found Bowman on a crossing pattern that turned into a 54-yard touchdown play. The Cowboys then recovered an onside kick and scored again on a 29-yard run by Reid to make it 17-14.

After a three-and-out by the Jayhawks, it took Reid all of four plays to find Bowman on a 25-yard touchdown pass for a 21-17 lead -- giving the Cowboys three scores in a span of 3:41.
