Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) -
BAYLOR: A week after putting up 69 points in their season-opening win over Wofford, the 22nd-ranked Bears cruised to a 70-13 win over Buffalo this past weekend. Through two games, Baylor leads the nation in total offense (736.5 ypg) and ranks second in scoring offense (69.5 ppg). Bryce Petty racked up 338 yards and two touchdowns, while Lache Seastrunk rushed for three scores against the Bulls. Petty completed 13-of-16 passes and Seastrunk carried 17 times for 150 yards and his three scores. Shock Linwood gained 76 yards and two touchdowns on the ground, while Tevin Reese and Antwan Goodley each had four catches and a touchdown, gaining 130 and 124 yards, respectively. The Bears gained a school-record 781 yards and extended their winning streak at home to six games dating back to last season. They'll get a bye this coming weekend before hosting ULM on Sept. 21.
IOWA STATE: The Cyclones were idle this past Saturday. They lost to Northern Iowa in the season opener and will host intrastate rival Iowa this weekend.
KANSAS: The Jayhawks opened their 2013 schedule with a 31-14 win over FCS foe South Dakota on Saturday. KU fell behind early but then scored 24 unanswered points to take control. The Jayhawks found some success with the ground game as they churned out 280 rushing yards as a team. James Sims headlined that effort with a game-high 94 yards and two touchdowns, while Darrian Miller chipped in with 72 yards on 14 carries. Junior quarterback Jake Heaps, a transfer from BYU, completed 10-of-20 passes for 110 yards and a TD in his KU debut. Victor Simmons led the defense with eight tackles. The defense held USD to 286 total yards and just a 3-of-13 success rate on third downs. The Jayhawks hit the road this week to take on Rice.
KANSAS STATE: The Wildcats rebounded from their season-opening loss to FCS power North Dakota State with a 48-27 victory over Louisiana on Saturday. John Hubert scored twice and finished with 56 yards on the ground. Daniel Sams added 63 yards and a touchdown on eight carries as part of a two-quarterback rotation. Jake Waters completed 22-of-31 pass attempts for 278 yards but was also intercepted twice. Tyler Lockett caught eight passes for 111 yards as one of eight players to record at least one reception for the Wildcats. Defensively, Dante Barnett led the way with nine tackles and two pass breakups. Ryan Mueller had eight stops (seven solo) and a sack. K-State finishes up its non-conference slate at home against Massachusetts this Saturday.
OKLAHOMA: The Sooners improved to 2-0 with Saturday's tough 16-7 win over West Virginia. Freshman Trevor Knight threw for 119 yards and a touchdown in the victory. Despite throwing Oklahoma's lone touchdown, Knight completed just 10- of-20 passes, threw a pair of interceptions and lost a fumble before he was removed in the fourth quarter in favor of Blake Bell. Bell did not complete a pass, but rushed for 21 yards on two carries. Brennan Clay carried the ball 22 times for a career-high 170 yards and Damien Williams added 95 yards on 21 carries for the Sooners (2-0, 1-0 Big 12), who face Tulsa this week. All told, the Sooners racked up 316 yards on the ground as a team to improve to 2-0 against WVU since the Mountaineers joined the Big 12 in 2012. They scored the game's final 16 points after trailing 7-0 in the first quarter.
OKLAHOMA STATE: The 12th-ranked Cowboys are 2-0 after traveling to Texas-San Antonio and coming away with a 56-35 victory in the first-ever meeting between the two programs. In fact, Oklahoma State was the first ranked team ever to play at the Alamodome against the Roadrunners. J.W. Walsh threw for 326 yards and four touchdowns while adding another score on the ground. The sophomore was named the starting quarterback after taking over for senior Clint Chelf in last week's 21-3 win over Mississippi State. Josh Stewart headlined the receiving corps with five catches for 97 yards and a score as OSU piled up 605 yards of total offense and did not commit a turnover on the day. The Cowboys scored on five of their six first-half possessions and never looked back. They'll host Lamar this Saturday and will be idle the following weekend before opening Big 12 play against West Virginia on Sept. 28.
TCU: A week after falling to LSU in their season opener, the Horned Frogs broke into the win column with a 38-17 triumph over SE Louisiana on Saturday. However, quarterback Casey Pachall injured his left forearm late in the second quarter when Southeastern Louisiana's Justin Church fell on him. He left the field holding his arm and did not return. TCU coach Gary Patterson said in a televised interview on the field that Pachall's injury was serious, then stated after the game that he would definitely miss the Big 12 opener Thursday against Texas Tech and could be out for the foreseeable future. Trevone Boykin took over and led the Horned Frogs to the go-ahead field goal on his first series and 21 straight points in the second half. He finished 9-of-13 for 133 yards with two touchdowns passing and ran for 35 yards on five carries, while catching a trio of passes for 25 yards.
TEXAS: The Longhorns were tripped up at BYU over the weekend, 40-21. As a result, they tumbled from No. 15 out of the top-25 altogether. Defensively, the Longhorns simply had no answer for a BYU ground attack that churned out a school-record 559 yards. In particular, Cougars running back Taysom Hill gave the UT defense fits with 259 yards and three touchdowns on 17 carries. For Texas, David Ash was 19-of-34 for 251 yards and two touchdowns, but left in the fourth quarter with an injury. Johnathan Gray turned 13 carries into 90 yards for the Longhorns (1-1), who were coming off a 56-7 blowout of New Mexico State last week. The start of the game was delayed for nearly two hours due to a thunderstorm that passed through the area. UT, which fired defensive coordinator Manny Diaz on Sunday and brought back former DC Greg Robinson, will look to rebound at home against Ole Miss this coming weekend.
TEXAS TECH: The Red Raiders scored early and often in Saturday's 61-13 rout of Stephen F. Austin to improve to 2-0. A 45-minute delay at the scheduled start time because of lightning was unable to slow the Red Raiders' potent offensive attack, as they came out and scored on each of their first four possessions. The team's 28 first-quarter points tied a program record for the most in an opening period. Walk-on freshman Baker Mayfield threw for three touchdowns and 367 yards -- all in the first half -- while Kenny Williams ran for two more TDs. Mayfield completed 21-of-30 passes on the day, and his touchdown tosses covered 25, 42 and 60 yards. Jace Amaro headlined the receiving corps with eight catches for 142 yards and a TD. All told, Texas Tech finished with 731 yards of total offense; 237 rushing and 494 passing. Next up, the Red Raiders host TCU in the Big 12 opener on Thursday night.
WEST VIRGINIA: The Mountaineers were on the wrong end of Saturday's 16-7 defensive slugfest at Oklahoma. They could not contain an OU rushing attack that accumulated 316 yards and was a key factor in the outcome. WVU was limited to its lowest scoring output in coach Dana Holgorsen's three-plus season coaching tenure at WVU. Special teams miscues by the Mountaineers led to 10 first-half points for the Sooners, another key factor. The Mountaineers had only five first downs in the opening half. Paul Millard went 21-of-41 for 218 yards and an interception in his first career road start. Dreamius Smith rushed for 77 yards and a touchdown for the Mountaineers (1-1, 0-1), who will host Georgia State this Saturday.
