LUBBOCK, Texas -- Baron Batch rushed for 123 yards and four touchdowns to help Texas Tech beat Kansas 42-21 on Saturday.
The Red Raiders scored 28 consecutive points in the fourth quarter to hand the Jayhawks their third consecutive loss. Batch had three of his four scores in the period.
Dezmon Briscoe had nine receptions for 110 yards and a touchdown for Kansas (5-3, 1/3 Big 12), which lost four of its five fumbles. Todd Reesing completed 20 of 35 passes for 181 yards, his worst outing since he got 162 yards last year against Kansas St.
Reesing's 6-yard toss to Briscoe gave the Jayhawks a 21-14 lead with 5 seconds left in the third but Texas Tech (6-3, 3-2) dominated the fourth.
Batch had TD runs of 1 and 17 yards to give the Red Raiders a 28-21 lead with 8:49 remaining. LaRon Moore returned a fumbled snap 31 yards for another touchdown before Batch's 11-yard run capped the scoring with 2:05 left.
The two offenses started slowly, with neither team crossing the 50 in the first quarter. Each team punted five times in the first half.
One-time starter Taylor Potts replaced Doege in the second half and finished 11-for-19 for 94 yards.
