The continuing comeback of Kenny Hill

Kenny Hill exploded onto the college football scene at Texas A&M and his crash was just as fast. After more than a year away, TCU's QB has begun to understand his fall and now his return to fame.

Baylor is good, and that could be a problem

The season at Baylor is uncomfortable and its scandal still simmers. On the field, the Bears are as good as ever. As they become Big 12 favorites, how will the college football world react?

Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury gave an initial update on QB Patrick Mahomes' right shoulder/arm injury to the school's radio broadcast right after the win over Kansas: "We'll see. Sounds like he should be OK, but we've got to go get him checked out."

Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury in postgame radio interview on injured QB Patrick Mahomes II: "Sounds like he could be OK, but we've got to get up there and check him out." Tech beat Kansas 55-19. The Red Raiders visit Kansas State a week from Saturday.

Updated Nic Shimonek stat line: 14 of 18 for 275 yards and four touchdowns. His passer rating is 279.4. That's two Tech quarterbacks tonight with four TD passes. Good night, Kansas.

Nic Shimonek is 11 of 14 for 190 yards and three scores in relief of Patrick Mahomes, who remains out after taking a shoulder hit late in the third quarter. No decline at all for Texas Tech, which leads 48-19. But make no mistake, this offense is built for Mahomes. Tech is a different team without him -- and the schedule grows more difficult from here. No word is yet available on the severity of the junior quarterback's injury.

Adding injury to insult, Kansas has knocked Texas Tech QB Patrick Mahomes II from the game. Mahomes was tackled hard after a 32-yard run. He has been taken to the locker room. Nic Shimonek is in for the Red Raiders. Tech leads 34-19.

Kansas defensive end Anthony Olobia is ejected for targeting against Texas Tech QB Patrick Mahomes. Big setback for the Jayhawks, who have played inspired defense after the first five minutes of this game.

Mitch Sherman ESPN Staff Writer 

How about that KU defense? Texas Tech lost a bit of its offensive edge with a 14-0 lead, but credit the Jayhawks -- big hits and they're getting after Mahomes. The Jayhawks got three consecutive stops, including an interception by Fish Smithson and a safety on a botched punt. It's 14-2 in Lubbock.

Mitch Sherman ESPN Staff Writer 

Only 40 passing yards for Patrick Mahomes II on Texas Tech's second touchdown drive. That's got to be disappointing. In all seriousness, Tech is meeting almost no resistance from the Kansas secondary in the first quarter tonight. Mahomes hit 9 of 10 throws for 120 yards as the Red Raiders scored twice in the first five minutes.
