Heaps transferred to Kansas after that season and sat our last year due to NCAA transfer rules.

Jayhawks coach Charlie Weis said Monday morning that he hadn't yet talked to Heaps about his previous experience against Texas.

“We're far away from that conversation,” Weis said. “That's a Monday-night conversation, that's not a Sunday, the day after the game conversation.”

SNYDER'S KEYS TO SLOWING BAYLOR

Kansas State has been about the only team this season to hold Baylor's offense down, giving up “only” 35 points to the Bears.

Baylor has scored 59 or more points in each of its other six wins.

Wildcats coach Bill Snyder said Monday that the key to their success was controlling the clock with a strong run game and good play up front defensively.

Kansas State ran for 327 yards and limited Baylor to 114 yards on the ground.

“I thought we played well with our front seven against the run game,” Snyder said. “I think that was first and foremost.

“It was probably the best game that we played with our front seven during the course of the year.”

WVU: ‘IT'S NOT WINNING OFFENSIVE FOOTBALL'

Dana Holgorsen's offenses have usually been among the top in the country, much less the conference.

But in West Virginia's second year in the Big 12, the Mountaineers are ninth in scoring offense in the league.

“It's been challenging,” Holgorsen said. “I've never dealt with it before, never dealt with this many guys that are new.”

More than halfway through the season, the Mountaineers are still adjusting to new players and coaches.

“I just want to continue to show improvement,” Holgorsen said. “Is it winning offensive football? No, it is not winning offensive football. It hasn't been all year. I take full responsibility for that.”

QUOTABLE

Texas coach Mack Brown on wanting to avoid delays after his Longhorns went through a three-hour delay in the second quarter of their Saturday game at TCU. Texas' game against BYU earlier this season was delayed as well:

“I would suggest that we all play indoors from now on after Saturday night.”
