Big 12 Football Continues to Shift Following Week 10

While the Mountaineers collapsed to the No. 11 Cowboys over the weekend, there was also plenty of action elsewhere around the Big 12 conference which shifted the conference standings and outlook on the remainder of the season.

Today, we’ll take a look at what else transpired around one of the top conferences in the nation including a field storming ending in Fort Worth, Texas for the Horned Frogs as well as Iowa State again trying to prove why they deserve to be ranked in the top-25.

TCU 30, No. 12 Baylor 28

For the first time since 2000, TCU was without their long-time head coach in Gary Patterson after agreeing with the university to part ways during the week. Even after bringing in special assistant to the head coach Jerry Kill to serve as interim head coach, the Horned Frogs were able to snatch the upset victory.

The game didn’t begin very well for TCU as Baylor quarterback Gerry Bohanon did what he’s done a lot this year and found TyQuan Thornton for a seven-yard touchdown pass five minutes into the action. The Horned Frogs were able to benefit from a couple Chandler Morris passing touchdowns and a lone rushing touchdown as the quarterback collected 531 total yards of offense.

Kansas State 35, Kansas 10

This one was expected to go the way it did as the Jayhawks of Kansas have been just as bad as everyone predicted again this season now sitting at 1-8. The main offensive power that sparked the Wildcats on Saturday came from sophomore running back Deuce Vaughn who rushed for three touchdowns and also ran for a career high 162 yards.

The longest Vaughn touchdown rush of the day came on the first play of the second half on an 80-yard score in the 25-point drubbing. Kansas State has now won three straight games in the Big 12 and will host West Virginia next weekend in Manhattan, Kansas.

Iowa State 30, Texas 7

Matt Campbell’s Iowa State unit continued to prove why they should be viewed as one of the top dogs in the Big 12 conference this past weekend after scoring 21 points in the third quarter alone against Texas. For Cyclones running back Breece Hall, it was the sixth time in seven games the back has rushed for at least 100 yards while going for 136 yards on the ground and two touchdowns.

The Iowa State offense was propelled behind a pair of Hall touchdowns as well as a Tarique Milton to Xavier Hutchinson 49-yard second quarter touchdown pass. Besides the offensive side of the ball, the Cyclones defense was able to hold Texas’ offense to only one field goal in the first quarter.
