BIG 12 ROUNDUP
No. 9 Oklahoma 52, TCU 27: Kyler Murray threw four touchdowns, Kennedy Brooks and Trey Sermon both had 100-yard rushing games with scores and Oklahoma rebounded from its only loss this season by beating host TCU for the third time in 11 months.
The Sooners (6-1, 3-1 Big 12) won their 18th consecutive true road game, never trailing after scoring touchdowns on each of their first four drives in their first game since losing to Texas two weeks ago.
Brooks ran for 168 yards on 18 carries with an early 21-yard TD.
Sermon ran 17 times for 110 yards and scored twice before walking gingerly off the field after being tended to by trainers with about 8½ minutes left.
This was a rematch of the Big 12 Conference championship game last December.
Oklahoma won three weeks after beating TCU in the regular season.
The Sooners have scored at least 38 points in their last four meetings against Gary Patterson’s defense, which entered this game tops in the league allowing only 20 per game.
TCU (3-4, 1-3) trailed 28-7 midway through the second quarter when former Penn transfer Michael Collins replaced ineffective starter Shawn Robinson.
Texas Tech 48, Kansas 16: Alan Bowman threw for 408 yards and three touchdowns while playing for the first time since suffering a partially collapsed lung three weeks ago as host Texas Tech beat Kansas.
Bowman completed 36 of 47 passes while showing accuracy on short and deep passes, with only one interception. The true freshman was the nation’s leading passer when he got crushed between two West Virginia defenders in Texas Tech’s last home game Sept. 29, and was released from the hospital four days later.
Antoine Wesley had nine catches for 155 yards and a touchdown. T.J. Vasher and Seth Collins also had TD catches for the Red Raiders (5-2, 3-1 Big 12), who had 553 total yards despite three turnovers.
