Texas Trucks Kansas, 35-13

Updated: Sunday, November 3 2013, 04:26 PM CST

Malcolm Brown ran for 119 yards and four touchdowns and defensive tackle Chris Whaley scored his second touchdown of the season as Texas beat Kansas 35-13 Saturday for the Longhorns' fifth win in a row.

Brown scored twice in the second quarter, and Whaley's 40-yard fumble return in the third quarter broke open what had been a surprisingly close game. Whaley, who was initially recruited as a running back, also scored on a 31-yard interception return against Oklahoma.

Brown's touchdown runs covered 2, 3, 1 and 30 yards for Texas (6-2, 5-0), which remains in a tie for first place in the Big 12. Case McCoy passed for 196 yards with two interceptions in Texas' first home game since Sept. 21. The Longhorns held Kansas to 306 total yards.

Kansas dropped its 26th consecutive loss in the Big 12. Jake Heaps passed for 160 yards for the Jayhawks (2-6, 0-5).

Texas lacked the early spark it had in its previous two games in dominant wins over Oklahoma and TCU. McCoy threw his third interception in two games on Texas' first drive, and the Longhorns were held scoreless in the first quarter for the first time since the season-opener.

Since the first half against Oklahoma back on Oct. 12, McCoy, who took over the starting job for injured David Ash, has five interceptions against two touchdown passes.

But Kansas had the sort of misfires that come with a losing streak. The Jayhawks had three drives inside the Texas 15 that accounted for just six points, and the fumble that set up Texas' touchdown return came just when the Jayhawks had a chance to seize momentum in the third quarter.

After snagging the early interception, the Jayhawks missed a chance for a surprise lead in the first when Matthew Wyman missed a 31-yard field goal. A penalty for running into the punter also let Texas keep the ball in what would end up as a 92-yard scoring drive when Brown scored his first touchdown 12 plays later.

Brown's second touchdown put Texas ahead 14-0 before a long pass from Heaps to Rodriguez Coleman set up Ron Doughty's 21-yard field on the last play of the first half.

Kansas started the third quarter with a drive that stalled at the Texas 10. Doughty cut the Longhorns lead to 14-6 with a 27-yard field goal that bounced in off the right upright.

The Jayhawks had quieted the home crowd until Whaley's fumble return. Heaps, who had started for BYU against Texas in 2011, was flushed out of the pocket and hit hard by Cedric Reed. The ball bounced once and popped up nearly waist high for Whaley to snag it and run untouched to the end zone.

Brown closed the third with his third touchdown of the day for a 28-6 lead. His fourth came a few minutes later when McCoy stumbled and barely made the handoff before his knee hit the ground.
