Freshman sensation Baker Mayfield passed for 368 yards but was helped off the field with an apparent leg injury in the third quarter of No. 20 Texas Tech's 54-16 victory over Kansas on Saturday.

Mayfield, a true freshman walk-on who has started every game, was hurt at the end of the third quarter when tackled while passing. There was no penalty. He hobbled very slowly off the field with someone helping him under each arm.

He was 33 of 51 with one interception.

After falling behind in the first quarter 10-0, the unbeaten Red Raiders reeled off 54 straight points, going to 5-0 (2-0 Big 12) under first-year head coach Kliff Kingsbury for the first time since 2008.

It's the 22nd straight Big 12 loss by Kansas (2-2, 0-1), a span which coach Charlie Weis made a point of telling everybody all week would encompass 1,063 days by Saturday.
