Week 2 Results

Kansas State 30 - UTSA 3

K-State scored 30 unanswered points, including 17 in the 4th, to out run the Roadrunners in San Antonio. UTSA, which scored 32 points on the road against #22 Arizona, was limited to 229 yards in their home opener.

Kansas State's backup turned starting quarterback, Joe Hubener, used the opportunity to throw for 243 yards and 0 interceptions. All three touchdowns were scored on the ground, with Huber as the leading rusher.

Liberty 17 - West Virginia 41

West Virginia's offense continues to tear apart opposing defenses. Skyler Howard threw three touchdowns behind a 21/26 - 263 yard day. Howard has yet to throw an interception this season.

UTEP 20 - Texas Tech 69

As predicted, defense was absent in Lubbock during this week 2 matchup as the two teams combined for 1088 total yards of offense. Patrick Mahomes II threw for 361 yards and 4 touchdowns against the Minors.

The Red Raider defense only surrendered 20 points in the contest, but UTEP running back, Aaron Jones, rushed for 139 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries.

Stephen F. Austin 7 - (3)TCU 70

Trevone Boykin threw for 4 touchdowns as TCU shook off the rust displayed during their week 1 road trip. The Horned Frogs, who also scored 4 touchdowns on the ground, seemed to score at will and provided plenty of playing time to their second string players.

Iowa 31 - Iowa State 17

A sprained ankle and sputtering offense sealed the Cyclones fate in a game that was much closer than the final score.

(19)Oklahoma 31 - (23)Tennessee 24

Oklahoma scored 17 unanswered points, including a 5 yard touchdown pass from Baker Mayfield to Sterling Shepard with 40 seconds left on the clock, to force overtime on the road.

Shepard also caught an 18 yard scoring pass in the second overtime to put the pressure on the Volunteers' offense. But a game winning interception by Zack Sanchez continued Oklahoma's dominance over the SEC.

No complaints here.

Memphis 55 - Kansas 23

Oh, Kansas.

Memphis had 651 yards of offense on 79 total plays and pulled away from Kansas after the Jayhawks scored the first 10 points of the game.

On the positive side, Kansas was able to run for 194 yards.

Central Arkansas 8 - Oklahoma State 32

Mason Rudolph threw for 401 yards and 2 touchdowns with an interception as the Cowboys outclassed the Bears of Central Arkansas.

Lamar 31 - (4)Baylor 66

A week after surrendering 21 first half points to SMU, Baylor's defense allowed 21 points in the first two quarters to a school named after a character in an 80's cult classic. I didn't see any of the game, but that can't be a good sign.

Rice 28 - Texas 42

Jerrod Heard completed just 4 passes in relief of benched quarterback, Tyrone Swoopes, but that is good enough when two are touchdowns. The new Texas starter also ran for 96 yards on 10 carries as the Longhorns cruised to victory.

However, all may not be well in Austin as the guys in burnt orange only managed 277 yards of total offense while surrendering 462 to Rice (228 rushing) who had five turnovers in the game.
