LINCOLN, Neb. - Cody Glenn scored from a yard out in the first overtime to help No. 21 Nebraska to a 39-32 win over Kansas on Saturday.

It was Nebraska's 19th straight win over Kansas in Lincoln and payback for last season's 40-15 loss, which ended a 36-game Cornhuskers' win streak in the series.

The Huskers led 24-7 at halftime. But Kansas scored twice in the last 6:32. Adam Barmann, gave Kansas a one-point lead with a 1-yard pass to Derek Fine.

Zac Taylor's fourth touchdown pass, a 75-yarder to Frantz Hardy with 4:13 left, and two-point conversion pass put the Huskers up 32-25. But Barmann threw a 26-yard touchdown to Brian Murph with 46 seconds left to cap an 81-yard drive.

Nebraska got the ball first in overtime. Taylor hit Nate Swift along the sideline for 21 yards to the 1. Glenn then bulled into the end zone. Kansas moved to the 9 but Barmann overthrew Marcus Henry in the end zone on fourth down.

No. 7 Texas 56, Sam Houston St. 3

AUSTIN, Texas - Colt McCoy passed for two touchdowns and Henry Melton ran for two for the Longhorns. Texas blocked the Bearkats' first punt for a touchdown and led 21-0 after the first quarter.

McCoy completed his first nine passes and sat out a series when freshman Jevan Snead directed the Longhorns to their fourth touchdown, his 8-yard run.

Melton scored from the 1 before Limas Sweed's acrobatic catch for a 42-yard touchdown and 42-0 halftime lead.

No. 25 Missouri 28, Colorado 13

COLUMBIA, Mo. - Chase Daniel threw four touchdowns as the Tigers reached 5-0 for the first time since 1981.

Down 14-6 late in the first half, Colorado punter Matt DiLallo allowed a snap to slip through his hands. He recovered but was tackled at the Colorado 14. Six plays later, on third and goal from the 1 and out of timeouts, Daniel hit Martin Rucker to make it 21-6.

Texas Tech 31, Texas A&M 27: Graham Harrell threw three touchdowns to Robert Johnson, including the winner with 26 seconds left, for the visiting Red Raiders. The Aggies took a 27-24 lead on Layne Neumann's 32-yard field goal with 2:12 left and appeared to seal it on the Raiders' third play on Mark Dodge's interception. But replays showed the ball hit the ground first. Five plays later, Johnson, who earlier caught touchdowns of 21 and 5 yards, made an acrobatic catch in the front corner of the end zone.

Baylor 17, Kansas St. 3: The host Bears have won consecutive conference games for the first time since the Big 12 formed in 1996. They beat Oklahoma State 44-34 in last season's finale. Late in the first quarter, Trent Shelton ran past a defender along the left sideline and caught Shawn Bell's pass in stride for a 75-yard score. In the third, Bell, under pressure, threw a floater toward Dominique Zeigler, who made a leaping catch for a 7-yard score.

Iowa State 28, N. Iowa 27: Bret Meyer hit Jon Davis for a 16-yard score with 1:05 left for the host Cyclones. Brian Wingert's 32-yard field goal with 2:20 left put the I-AA Panthers up 27-21. But Iowa State needed only 1:05 to drive 74 yards in six plays, capped when Davis beat a defender to the left side of the end zone. Wingert missed a 51-yarder with six seconds left.
