Oklahoma State 28, Missouri 23
The second-ranked Tigers (5-1, 1-1) were poised to take over No. 1 in the polls but the 17th-ranked Cowboys had other ideas. Oklahoma State (6-0, 2-0) made the big plays - its second-half touchdowns covered 30, 41 and 62 yards. Missouri quarterback Chase Daniel was 39-of-52 for 390 yards but was intercepted three times in the second half. The third pick came with 1:41 at the Cowboys' 31 and ended the Tigers' final drive.

Baylor 38, Iowa State 10
The Bears reached .500 on the season and in the Big 12 with a dominating victory over the Cyclones (2-4, 0-2). Freshman quarterback Robert Griffin completed 21-of-24 passing for 278 yards with two touchdowns to Kendall Wright; the second TD pass to Wright gave the Bears a 38-3 lead. Baylor (3-3, 1-1) had lost 13 consecutive Big 12 games.

Texas Tech 37, Nebraska 31 (OT)
The seventh-ranked Red Raiders (6-0, 2-0) were pushed to the edge until Jamar Well ended the game with an interception. The Cornhuskers (3-3, 0-2) twice rallied in the second half to force overtime. When Texas Tech's extra point was blocked, all Nebraska needed was a touchdown and an extra point. But as quarterback Joe Ganz tried to avoid a sack, his pass was picked off by Wall.

Kansas State 44, Texas A&M 30
The Wildcats jumped to a 27-3 lead and then held on. Kansas State (4-2, 1-1) quarterback Josh Freeman completed 21-of-26 passes and ran for four touchdowns. Aggies (2-4, 0-2) quarterback Jerrod Johnson was 29-of-41 for a school-record 419 yards). Texas A&M had a chance to tie the game but Kansas State's defense stopped Jorvorskie Lane twice at the goal line midway through the fourth quarter. The Wildcats responded with a 98-yard game-clinching TD drive.

Texas 45, Oklahoma 35
The fifth-ranked Longhorns (6-0, 2-0) trailed by 11 points twice in the first half and by eight points in the second half before pulling away for their upset of the top-ranked Sooners (5-1, 1-1). Texas quarterback Colt McCoy was 28-of-35 for 277 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions. His counterpart, OU quarterback Sam Bradford, tied the school record with five TD passes and his 387 yards passing is the the most by an Oklahoma QB in the rivalry's history.

Kansas 30, Colorado 14
Jake Sharp, who sparked the No. 16 Jayhawks' second-half comeback at Iowa State last week, continue to be productive. Sharp gained 118 yards on a career-high 31 carries and scored three touchdowns as Kansas (5-1, 2-0) handed the Buffaloes (3-3, 0-2) their third consecutive defeat. Colorado has lost 10 consecutive road games to ranked opponents.
