South teams pick up statement wins over North opponents

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) _ So much for the rise of the Big 12
North.
Wins by Kansas State and Colorado over Oklahoma and Texas had
fueled thoughts that the North had finally caught up to the South.
It certainly didn't look that way on Saturday.
Oklahoma State and Texas picked up road wins over North division
opponents by a combined total of 84 points. And Oklahoma knocked
off previously unbeaten Missouri in a potential Big 12 title game
preview.
When the dust was settled, only Kansas remained unbeaten in Big
12 play. The surprising Jayhawks pounded cellar-dwelling Baylor
58-10. Kansas improves to 6-0 for the first time under coach Mark
Mangino.
But Kansas was the only North team to beat a South opponent, as
the division went 2-4 on the day. Kansas State was the other
winner, thumping Colorado 47-20.
