Big XII Conference Recap- Week 9

Kansas was off this week. As for the rest of the Big XII, here’s a quick recap of all the games.

#10 TCU 82, Texas Tech 27

I’m not sure I can add anything insightful to the commentary on this game that has not already been said, so here’s a bunch of stats:

  • TCU’s 82 points are a Big 12 record for a conference game
  • TCU QB Trevone Boykin threw for 433 yards in just 22 receptions from his receivers
  • He threw 7 TDs which is equal to the total that KU quarterbacks have thrown this season
  • The Horned Frogs has 785 total yards
  • Both Aaron Green and Trevorris Johnson ran for 105 yards and together averaged 13 yards per carry

Next week, TCU travels to West Virginia for a monster matchup with the Mountaineers while Texas Tech looks to regroup at home against Texas.

#11 Kansas State 23, Texas 0

The one positive that Texas can take from their visits to the Sunflower state is that they come out of it exactly even. The Longhorns shutout Kansas 23-0 and lost by that exact score in Manhattan to the first place Wildcats. Again, not much to say here other than K-State is vastly superior to Texas in football, something that has been pretty much consistently true for the better part of 20 years. Next week, Kansas State hosts Oklahoma State while Texas takes a trip to Lubbock to face Tech.

#22 West Virginia 34, Oklahoma State 10

This was the tale of two teams heading in opposite directions. West Virginia is now bowl eligible while OSU continues its slide in the Big 12 standings. West Virginia needed this win to stay on pace to contend for the conference crown and Wendell Smallwood led the way on the ground with 132 yards rushing. QB Clint Trickett had a lackluster day by his standards but still managed 238 yards and two touchdowns on 21 of 30 passing. Next, the Mountaineers entertain TCU in what should be an electric atmosphere in Morgantown. OSU travels to K-State.
