Big 12 scoreboard:

No. 2 Kansas State 44, Oklahoma State 30: Bill Snyder's mistake-free football won again. The Wildcats (9-0, 6-0 Big 12) forced five turnovers -- and didn't give it away once -- in a game that their defense bent a little more than usual. Allen Chapman had three interceptions and ended any chance at an OSU comeback by picking off Clint Chelf in the final two minutes. Oklahoma State (5-3, 3-2) even outgained Kansas State 504-481, but freshman Wes Lunt's three interceptions, including one that was returned for a touchdown by Chapman, were too much to overcome. Collin Klein finished his day midway through the third quarter because of an injury, and it didn't matter. Klein still passed for 245 yards and ran for 65 and a touchdown, and the KSU offense kept moving.  (For more on the game, check out's Eye on College Football blog)

TCU 39, No. 21 West Virginia 38, 2 OT: TCU's chances did not look good. The Horned Frogs had the ball on their 6-yard line on second-and-19 when somehow the Mountaineers allowed Josh Boyce to break open. Trevone Boykin hit Boyce with a perfect pass for a 94-yard touchdown that sent the game to overtime. After the Horned Frogs (6-3, 3-3 Big 12) fell behind in the second OT, Brandon Carter threw a reverse touchdown pass and Gary Patterson decided to go for two and the win. Once again, the Boykin-to-Boyce combination ruined what looked like it would be a bounce-back day for West Virginia (5-3, 2-3).

No. 23 Texas 31, No. 18 Texas Tech 22: David Ash bounced back after getting benched last week at Kansas by throwing for 264 yards and three touchdowns. Mike Davis caught four of Ash's 11 completions for 165 yards and two touchdowns. Texas (7-2, 4-2 Big 12) beat a ranked opponent for the first time since 2010. The Red Raiders (6-3, 3-3) had a chance to move into a tie for first place in the Big 12 a week ago but have lost two straight.

No. 12 Oklahoma 35, Iowa State 20: Landry Jones was intercepted on back-to-back drives in the second quarter, keeping the Cyclones in the game. Jones responded by leading the Sooners to four touchdowns in their next five possessions. He threw for a season-high 405 yards and four touchdowns as Oklahoma (6-2, 4-1 Big 12) remained in contention for the Big 12 title. Jones got some help from RB Brennan Clay, who ran for a career-best 157 yards and a TD as the replacement for Damien Williams, who was limited because of an ankle injury. Iowa State (5-4, 2-4) has lost three of its past four games. (For more on the game, check out's Eye on College Football blog)

Baylor 41, Kansas 14: Baylor finally found an offense it could stop. The Bears' offense, meanwhile, was its usual self, racking up 666 yards. Nick Florence threw for 367 yards and three touchdowns. Terrance Williams had another big game, catching 11 passes for 137 yards and a touchdown. Baylor (4-4, 1-4 Big 12) led only 20-14 at halftime. A lightning delay apparently helped the Bears figure out KU's run-first offense. The Jayhawks (1-8, 0-6) have yet to score more than 17 points in Big 12 play.

Play of the day: West Virginia's Tavon Austin came in motion and caught a touch pass from Geno Smith. From there, Austin ran around the left corner, did a few jukes, reversed field and went 43 yards for a touchdown.

He said what?: West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen on his offense: "They tackled a lot better than we blocked. They whipped us up front. I thought our O-line played bad, receivers didn't make big plays, and Geno was probably as bad as he's been since he's been here and it falls on me. We'll look at it and see what we have to do to get better."

RapidReports defensive star of the day: Chapman. This was a pretty easy pick. Chapman's three interceptions ruined any chances Oklahoma State had at the upset. 

Runner-up: S Tony Jefferson, Oklahoma. Mike Stoops' use of Jefferson has been one of the major reasons for the Sooners' defensive improvement. He led the team with nine tackles and also had an interception and a pass breakup.

RapidReports offensive star of the day: TCU's Boyce. He had the two biggest catches of the day and his statline wasn't bad either: 6 receptions for 180 yards and two touchdowns. 

A possible spot on the bench for: Iowa State's receivers. Steele Jantz was 20 of 40 but he didn't get much help from his receivers, who had several drops. Coach Paul Rhoads has said he wants his quarterbacks to have a better completion percentage, but it's tough to put this one on Jantz. 

Why you care about these three stat lines: 

  1. Smith was 32 of 54 and had an interception. Next time a player gets off to a hot start, let's go ahead and wait on the Heisman talk. We'll call it the Geno rule. Smith had his best game in almost a month, but he wasn't nearly as sharp as he was early in the year. West Virginia's defense wasn't as inept as early on in the year, even giving its offense a chance to win the game in the first OT. Smith didn't come through, throwing three straight incompletions. 
  2. Texas held the Red Raiders to 112 rushing yards. The Longhorns, troubled by tackling issues all year, had allowed 259.8 rushing yards per game in Big 12 play. The accomplishment isn't as great when you consider Texas Tech has had the conference's worst rushing offense. 
  3. Oklahoma WR Justin Brown had 107 receiving yards, his first 100-yard receiving game as a Sooner. The OU receivers made some nice plays on jump balls that helped Jones have a big day. 

Key number: 2.2. That was West Virginia's average per rushing play against the Horned Frogs. The Mountaineers' inability to run has put a lot of pressure on Smith.
