LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — The Big 12 is heading into its second week of conference play. A high-profile matchup between third-ranked Kansas and No. 4 Baylor on Saturday could set the stage for the rest of the season. The other big game Saturday features No. 17 West Virginia against Texas Tech. On the women's side, sixth-ranked Baylor is flying high into the weekend after routing No. 1 Connecticut, ending the Huskies' 98-game home winning streak.

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Texas Tech receiver Seth Collins is getting an extra season to play in college. Red Raiders coach Matt Wells said Friday that the NCAA has granted a waiver for Collins to have a sixth year of eligibility. Collins missed last season because of a shoulder injury. Collins started his career at Oregon State, where he started seven games at quarterback as a true freshman in 2015 before moving to receiver at the end of that season. He had 32 catches in his first season for Texas Tech in 2018, but got hurt late in spring practice last year.
