CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — Ben Finley threw for 271 yards and two touchdowns in his first career start, and North Carolina State held on to beat Drake Maye and No. 18 North Carolina 30-27 on Friday when Noah Burnette duck-hooked a 35-yard field goal try in the second overtime.
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Bijan Robinson wouldn't say if he played his last college game on Friday. But if he did, the Texas junior made it a memorable one.
Robinson rushed for 179 yards and two touchdowns, Jaylan Ford made his fourth interception of the season, and No.
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas coach Steve Sarkisian laid out to his players the realistic, though somewhat out-of-their-control, scenario about how the 24th-ranked Longhorns can still get into the Big 12 championship game.

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — TCU was far from pretty against Texas, yet the Horned Frogs are still undefeated and playing for a Big 12 championship.
And maybe even bigger things to come.
Kendre Miller rushed for 138 yards, including a 75-yard touchdown in the third quarter that broke open a tense defensive struggle, and No.

WACO, Texas (AP) — If quarterback Blake Shapen and the Baylor Bears want a realistic chance to defend their Big 12 title, they'll need a fourth consecutive victory when No. 23 Kansas State visits Saturday night.

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The big picture is laid out before No. 4 TCU, and the Horned Frogs have everything to play for.
They are undefeated and in striking range of clinching a berth in the Big 12 title game.
Some things to watch during Week 11 in the Big 12 Conference:
GAME OF THE WEEK
No. 4 TCU (9-0, 6-0 Big 12, No. 4 CFP) at No. 18 Texas (6-3, 4-2)
No. 4 TCU has a chance to wrap up a spot in the Big 12 Conference championship game, but who would play the Horned Frogs for the title could remain very much in question.
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Gary Patterson could now play a key role in spoiling what has been a perfect season so far for fourth-ranked TCU.
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Stetson Bennett threw two touchdown passes and ran for a score and No. 1 Georgia shut down No. 2 Tennessee’s high-powered offense, dominating the Volunteers 27-13 on Saturday in an SEC showdown of the nation’s top-ranked teams.
MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Two weeks ago, Texas let a game against Oklahoma State slip away in the fourth quarter.
The Longhorns weren't about to let it happen again.

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Will Howard could have sulked when he lost the starting quarterback job at Kansas State to Adrian Martinez, the transfer from Nebraska who had never thrown a pass for the Wildcats.
Some things to watch during Week 10 in Big 12 Conference:
GAME OF THE WEEK
Texas (5-3, 3-2 Big 12, No. 24 CFP) at No. 13 Kansas State (6-2, 4-1, No. 13 CFP).
MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Kansas State hopes to know late in the week whether it will have Adrian Martinez under center when the No. 22 Wildcats play ninth-ranked Oklahoma State in a game that could help decide who plays in the Big 12 championship game.
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas coach Steve Sarkisian apologized Monday for not staying on the field to sing "The Eyes of Texas” after the Longhorns' loss to Oklahoma State and promised it would “never happen again.”
STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — Spencer Sanders fought through pain to deliver a key win for Oklahoma State.
The senior threw for 391 yards and hit Bryson Green with the game-winning touchdown pass with just over three minutes left, and the 11th-ranked Cowboys defeated No.

Line: Texas by 6 1/2, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
Texas coach Steve Sarkisian believes things have really changed for the Longhorns.
Last week's game showed why he feels that way. Texas rallied to beat a tough Iowa State team and remain well positioned in the Big 12 race.
Iowa State coach Matt Campbell has seen the final minutes of four Big 12 games play out in wildly different fashions.
None of them good.
There was the conference opener against Baylor, when a failed onside kick kept the Cyclones from having a chance in a 31-24 loss.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Chase McGrath made a 40-yard field goal as time expired to give No. 6 Tennessee a 52-49 victory over No. 3 Alabama on Saturday.
As soon as the kick knuckle-balled through the uprights, some of the more than 100,000 fans stormed the field to celebrate the Volunteers (6-0, 3-0 Southeastern Conference) ending a 15-game losing streak to the Crimson Tide (6-1, 3-1).
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas believes it's a tougher, more resilient team that last season — and the Longhorns are showing it so far this fall.
The latest evidence came Saturday as No. 22 Texas, trailing struggling Iowa State in the fourth quarter, rallied to win 24-21.

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — No. 22 Texas doesn't expect offensive production to come as easily as it did last week when Iowa State visits Saturday.
“They play great defense, probably the best in our conference,” coach Steve Sarkisian said.
Some things to watch in Week 7 of the Big 12 season:
GAME OF THE WEEK
No. 8 Oklahoma State (5-0, 2-0 Big 12) at No. 13 TCU (5-0, 2-0). The Big 12 will be down to one undefeated team after Saturday's game between its highest-ranked and highest-scoring teams.
Beating Oklahoma has been a way to get ranked in the Big 12 — which is odd considering how poorly the Sooners have played lately.
No. 22 Texas became the third Big 12 team in the last three weeks to defeat Oklahoma on Saturday and end up in the AP Top 25 presented by Regions Bank on Sunday.
STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — Oklahoma State had more than enough stamina to keep up with Texas Tech's up-tempo offense.
Spencer Sanders ran for two touchdowns and passed for another and No. 7 Oklahoma State beat Texas Tech 41-31 on Saturday.
DALLAS (AP) — Quinn Ewers never really considered whether he would be rusty after missing the last three games for Texas because of a collarbone injury that took him out against the nation's top-ranked team.
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — The party is over for Brent Venables.
Oklahoma’s new football coach was welcomed at the Norman airport like a conquering hero when he arrived to replace USC-bound Lincoln Riley in December.
Texas (3-2, 1-1 Big 12) vs Oklahoma (3-2, 0-2) in Dallas, Saturday, noon ET (ABC)
Line: Texas by 7 according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Recent meetings between Texas and Oklahoma have been shootouts.
Both teams have scored at least 40 points in four of the past six regular-season meetings, with Oklahoma breaking 50 in victories the past two years.
Adrian Martinez, Dillon Gabriel, Quinn Ewers and JT Daniels understandably topped the preseason lists of players transferring to Big 12 schools. They're quarterbacks, after all.
While Kansas State's Martinez might be the conference's most celebrated transfer after the first month of the season, it's been lesser-known transfers who have been big difference-makers for the surprise teams at the top of the Big 12 standings.
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia running back CJ Donaldson is in concussion protocol and will miss next week's home game with Baylor after he was injured in a loss to Texas, coach Neal Brown said Tuesday.
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Two rivals, two quarterback injury conundrums.
Texas and Oklahoma are preparing for this weekend's annual matchup in Dallas with big questions at the most important position on the field.
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Hudson Card passed for three touchdowns, including two to Xavier Worthy, to lead Texas to a 38-20 win over West Virginia on Saturday night.
Card, who has started three straight games but may be replaced next week week if freshman Quinn Ewers returns from a clavicle injury, finished with 303 yards passing.
The new world of college athletes getting paid for endorsements has created a rapidly expanding pop-up industry: Brand new nonprofit "collectives” that pay athletes to promote charities.
The collectives are pitched as feel-good partnerships, but they also raise questions.
There was a common conversation this week within the walls of the Football Training Facility at Texas Tech and the Vanier Family Football Complex adjacent to Bill Snyder Family Stadium at Kansas State.

An eye-opening win by Kansas State over Oklahoma and strong starts by Kansas and other Big 12 teams on the road have thrown the early conference standings into an unfamiliar heap.
Perennial basement dweller Kansas is 4-0 and on the cusp of its first ranking in 13 years.
IRVING, Texas (AP) — Texas Tech was fined $50,000 and reprimanded Monday by the Big 12 Conference because fans stormed the field following an overtime victory against rival Texas, a celebration during which a video showed one of them shoving a Longhorns player.
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Kansas State quarterback Adrian Martinez ran for 148 yards and four touchdowns, and the Wildcats stunned No. 6 Oklahoma 41-34 on Saturday night.
Martinez also passed for 234 yards and a score and Deuce Vaughn rushed for 116 yards for the Wildcats (3-1, 1-0 Big 12).
