WACO, Texas (AP) — Baylor quarterback Blake Shapen threw for a touchdown and scored on a fourth-down run as the 17th-ranked Bears beat Texas State 42-7.

True freshman Richard Reese ran for 156 yards and three touchdowns for Baylor.

The Bobcats thought they had a fourth-down stop just before halftime, but Shapen faked the handoff to Reese and took off untouched for a 35-yard score. That gave the Bears a 21-7 lead right after the Bobcats had gotten within a score. Texas State is 0-10 against Top 25 teams since becoming an FBS team in 2012.
