WACO, Texas -- Bryce Petty threw for 347 yards with two touchdowns and had one of Baylor's eight rushing TDs as No. 17 Bears kept up their big-scoring ways in the Big 12, beating West Virginia 73-42 on Saturday night.

The Bears (4-0, 1-0 Big 12) had 864 total yards, breaking the Big 12 record. They had 468 yards rushing and 396 passing.

Petty completed 17 of 25 passes while playing only one drive into the second half.

Lache Seastrunk had his eighth consecutive 100-yard rushing game, coinciding with Baylor's winning streak. He ran 15 times for 172 yards and two touchdowns, including an 80-yard score as Baylor had 28 points in the first quarter for the fourth game in a row.

The Mountaineers (3-3, 1-2) made their Big 12 debut with a 70-63 win over Baylor last year in the league's highest-scoring game ever. They couldn't keep up in the rematch.

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. -- Rakeem Cato threw for 279 yards and two touchdowns and Marshall's defense intercepted three passes in a 34-10 victory over UTSA on Saturday.

Marshall (3-2, 1-0 Conference USA) had no turnovers on the day and the Thundering Herd capitalized on the costly mistakes of UTSA, allowing them to go ahead 17-0 in the first quarter. Cato was 22-for 32 passing, with touchdown passes to Demetrius Evans and Devon Johnson.

UTSA's (2-4, 1-1) Eric Soza had two interceptions in the first quarter that set up Marshall's first 10 points of the game. The Roadrunners were down 27-3 when Soza scored on a 1-yard run, their only touchdown.

A.J. Leggett's third quarter interception was the ninth for Marshall this season, matching its mark for all of the 2012 season.

Marshall's defense held UTSA to 254 total yards and limited them to 16 first downs.
