Iowa State 9, Nebraska 7
(AP)--Nebraska all but gift-wrapped this upset for Iowa State.
And first-year coach Paul Rhoads and his upstart Cyclones will gladly take it.
The Cornhuskers matched a school record by committing eight turnovers, including four inside the Iowa State 5, and the Cyclones posted a 9-7 upset Saturday for their first victory in Lincoln since 1977.
"I feel really blessed to get this win, and I know that's the way the rest of the team feels," defensive tackle Nate Frere said. "Whacky game, but that's how it goes sometimes."
The 18 1/2-point-underdog Cyclones (5-3, 2-2) ended a 15-game Big 12 losing streak in games played away from Ames, Iowa, and now have their most wins since going 7-5 in 2005. They need just one more win to become bowl eligible.
Kansas State 20, Colorado 6
(AP)--Daniel Thomas ran for 145 yards and a touchdown, and Emmanuel Lamur had two interceptions to lead Big 12 North-leading Kansas State to a 20-6 win over Colorado on Saturday.
Humbled by an early loss to Louisiana-Lafayette and a 66-14 beatdown by Texas Tech, Kansas State (5-3, 3-1) is alone atop the Big 12 North after impressive wins over Texas A&M and Colorado. The Wildcats forced four turnovers and held Colorado to 244 total yards for their first 3-1 start in the Big 12 since 2000, during coach Bill Snyder's first tenure.
Colorado (2-5, 1-2) looked nothing like the team that traded big plays with Kansas last week, scoring on its first drive and doing little else to lose its 10th-straight road game. The Buffaloes are 2-17 away from Boulder in coach Dan Hawkins' three-plus seasons.
Kansas State's running game has been a big part of its recent success. The Wildcats have been consistent on the ground all season, ranking third in the Big 12, and even better the past two games, getting 204 yards against Colorado after a 232-yard day against Texas A&M.
Texas A&M 52, No. 21 Texas Tech 30
(AP)--Cyrus Gray scored four touchdowns to lead Texas A&M past No. 21 Texas Tech 52-30 Saturday night, snapping a three-game losing streak for the Aggies.
Texas A&M (4-3, 1-2 Big 12) hadn't won in Lubbock since 1993.
It was quite a turnaround from A&M's 62-14 loss last week to Kansas State. The Aggies had 334 total yards in the first half against the Red Raiders a week after they had 301 for the entire game.
Jerrod Johnson completed 19 of 28 passes for 238 yards and a touchdowns, and added 71 yards and another score on 10 carries.
The Red Raiders (5-3, 2-2) went to Seth Doege at quarterback after Taylor Potts fumbled in the third quarter.
No. 3 Texas 41, Missouri 7
(AP)--Colt McCoy had been off his game in recent weeks. He got it all back together against Missouri.
McCoy completed his first 11 passes and produced touchdowns on No. 3 Texas' first three drives, helping to put the Tigers away early in a 41-7 victory on Saturday night.
McCoy matched his season best with three touchdown passes, two of them to Jordan Shipley, while Texas' defense blocked a punt for a score in a nearly flawless first half that produced a 35-7 lead.
"Colt has had a very tough year," coach Mack Brown said. "He's been sick, he's been hurt, but he's tough. We've got the Colt of old back now and ready to make the stretch run."
McCoy's on-target performance helped Texas win its 11th in a row overall and he's 39-7 overall at Texas, tying Tennessee's Peyton Manning for second in career victories.
No. 14 Oklahoma State 34, Baylor 7
(AP)--Zac Robinson completed 23 of 27 passes for 250 yards with three touchdowns and No. 14 Oklahoma State stretched its winning streak to five games with a 34-7 victory over Baylor on Saturday.
The Cowboys (6-1, 3-0 Big 12), who have won their last four games without injured running back Kendall Hunter or suspended receiver Dez Bryant, led 10-0 after their first two possessions. They made it 24-0 on Robinson's 19-yard TD to Cooper Bassett that capped an 87-yard drive to open the second half.
Baylor (3-4, 0-3), which has a 20-game losing streak to ranked teams, has scored only 24 points in its Big 12 games. The Bears are 1-3 since standout sophomore quarterback Robert Griffin tore a ligament in his right knee a month ago.
Oklahoma State, which plays No. 3 Texas at home next weekend, was again just fine without its top running back and top receiver from last season.
Robinson's 85-percent completion percentage was the best-ever for an Oklahoma State quarterback with at least 20 attempts, breaking the record his coach, Mike Gundy, set by hitting 27 of 35 passes (77 percent) against Kansas in 1989.
No. 25 Oklahoma 35, Kansas 13
(AP)--Chris Brown scored three touchdowns, and No. 25 Oklahoma throttled Todd Reesing and the nation's second-leading offense en route to a 35-13 victory Saturday over No. 24 Kansas.
The Sooners (4-3, 2-1 Big 12) intercepted Kansas' career passing leader on the Jayhawks' first three possessions. Dominique Franks set the defensive tone with an 85-yard touchdown return of the second interception of the NCAA's fifth-leading passer.
Landry Jones, starting for injured Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Sam Bradford, threw two touchdown passes and had little trouble with a Kansas defense that has been undergoing a midseason overhaul. Kansas (5-2, 1-2) hurt itself with penalties as well as turnovers and had only two field goals until Reesing's 5-yard TD run with 4:27 left.
Oklahoma's powerful defense held Kansas almost 200 yards below its season average of 503 yards. The Jayhawks had hoped for a victory that would elevate them to Big 12 contender status, but it was another Oklahoma domination, the Sooners' sixth straight victory over them.
Kansas' Dezmon Briscoe, the nation's leading receiver with 134 yards per game, was held to 60 yards on seven catches - 209 fewer yards than he had in a record-breaking day against the Sooners last year.
