Chelf leads Oklahoma State past West Virginia

STILLWATER — Clint Chelf threw for 292 yards and four touchdowns in his first career start, and Josh Stewart had a career-high 172 receiving yards and scored three TDs as Oklahoma State handed West Virginia its fourth straight loss, 55-34 Saturday.

Chelf, a fourth-year junior, became the third starter at quarterback for the Cowboys (6-3, 4-2 Big 12) this season. Wes Lunt sat out after suffering an apparent concussion last week against Kansas State, and his backup, J.W. Walsh, is out with a season-ending knee injury.

Geno Smith was 36 of 54 for 364 yards and two touchdowns for the Mountaineers (5-4, 2-4)

Joseph Randle ran for 81 yards to go over the 1,000-yard mark, the sixth straight year an Oklahoma State back has done so.

Kansas State 23, TCU 10: Collin Klein and third-ranked Kansas State bolstered their chances in the national championship chase by doing what Alabama failed to do.

The Wildcats beat one of the newcomers in their conference.

Klein, the Heisman Trophy hopeful starting a week after an apparent head injury, ran for two touchdowns for No. 2 Kansas State in a 23-10 victory Saturday night at TCU, which is in its first season in the Big 12.

Klein’s third interception of the season came on only the fourth play against TCU. Freshman defensive end Devonte Fields was back in coverage when he made a diving grab for his first career pick.

Texas Tech 41, Kansas 34: Eric Stephens took the snap out of the wildcat formation, rolled to his right and threw a 3-yard jump pass to Darrin Moore for a touchdown in double overtime to lead No. 25 Texas Tech past Kansas.

Kansas quarterback Michael Cummings couldn’t connect with Tre’ Parmalee in the end zone on fourth-and-9 for Kansas to end the Jayhawks chances.

Texas 33, Iowa State 7: David Ash passed for 364 yards and two touchdowns and No. 19 Texas honored former coach Darrell Royal by whipping Iowa State 33-7 on Saturday.
