Big 12 Weekend Recap | Longhorns Figure Out How To Score, Kansas State Rolls In San Antonio

New, 2 comments

It was a weekend of Big 12 football that didn't highlight many marquee match-ups, so it shouldn't be much of a surprise to anyone that the conference fared well. Oklahoma and Iowa State were the teams with the biggest games while the remainder of the schools lined up to play college football's stepchildren.

Kansas State 30 - Texas San Antonio 3 | Credit the Wildcats for actually taking to the road to play this game and while UTSA may not be a household name, they aren't the pushover that you'd think them to be either. The Roadrunners lost at #22 Arizona by a final score of 42-32 last week so kudos go to the KSU defense for holding them to just three points at home. The bigger story here is the continued success of junior quarterback Joe Hubener who was the #2 guy on the depth chart as the Wildcats kickoff the season last weekend.

Texas Tech 69 - UTEP 20 | This game was close midway through the second quarter but Patrick Mahomes and the Red Raider offense were way too much for the Miners to handle. The Big 12's co-Offensive Player of the Week passed for 361 yards and 4 touchdowns while also running for two more scores.

West Virginia 41 - Liberty 17 | After six quarters of shutout football the Mountaineers finally gave up a touchdown to an opponent in the third quarter of their game against Turner Gill's Flames on Saturday. If you haven't seen quarterback Skyler Howard yet then you'll want to check him out before your team has to play WVU. Not sure how Dana Holgorsen keeps reloading at the quarterback position but he does.

TCU 70 - Stephen F. Austin 7 | New rule - If a team like TCU schedules an opponent like SFA and doesn't lose, or score a hundred points in the win, then we're not gonna talk about it.

Iowa 31 - Iowa State 17 | Heartbreak city for the Cyclones who led 17-10 at the half but were shutout over the final 30 minutes of the game. ISU only managed 63 rushing yards in the game and quarterback Sam Richardson was sacked four times.

Oklahoma 31 - Tennessee 24 | I wonder what kind of motivational quote Butch Jones is going to tape all over the locker room and football facilities as the Vols get ready to play Western Carolina?

Memphis 55 - Kansas 23 | Basketball is coming, Jayhawk fans. I promise!

Oklahoma State 32 - Central Arkansas 8 | Mason Rudolph passed for 401 yards and David Glidden was on the receiving end for 145 of them. Perhaps Mike Gundy can place a phone call to Bill Snyder before the Cowboys host Texas San Antonio this weekend.

Baylor 66 - Lamar 31 | See new rule posted with the TCU score. Thirty-one points though?

Texas 42 - Rice 28 | Hey, look everyone, Texas figured out how to score points. Also to their credit, they led 42-14 before Rice scored two fourth quarter touchdowns. Five Rice turnovers aided the Texas effort as did a punt return for a score and a defensive score off a fumble.
