THE RUNDOWN
LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - Bryce Petty threw for 430 yards and three touchdowns in fewer than three quarters, Lache Seastrunk ran for 109 yards and a score and sixth-ranked Baylor routed Kansas 59-14 on Saturday night for its school-record 11th straight win.

The Bears (7-0, 4-0 Big 12) piled up 500 yards of offense in taking a 38-0 lead by halftime, and then relaxed as coach Art Briles pulled many of his starters in the third quarter.

The nation's highest-scoring offense still finished with 743 yards, and eight of its nine scoring drives took fewer than 2 minutes. Four different Baylor players had touchdown runs - Petty among them - while Tevin Reese hauled in two of his three TD tosses.

Jake Heaps was held to just 85 yards passing and a touchdown for Kansas (2-5, 0-4), which has now lost 25 consecutive Big 12 games.
