Associated Press LONGHORNS FALL TO OKLAHOMA STATE -- (Wire Reports) - The Big 12 championship is still solidly in reach for No. 12 Oklahoma State, which showed Saturday just what No. 4 Baylor will be up against next week.

They did it by clobbering No. 23 Texas -- and in a fashion that no team has ever done here against Mack Brown.

Quarterback Clint Chelf ran for two touchdowns and threw for two more, and the Cowboys beat the Longhorns 38-13 to hand Brown his worst home loss in 16 seasons. It comes at a time when speculation about Brown's job security had just started quieting down following a bumbling start this season for the Longhorns.

But that's of no concern to the Cowboys (9-1, 6-1), who won in Austin for the third straight time. They've now pulled off six straight wins since an early stumble against West Virginia, and have kept looking like the Big 12 contenders that many predicted to start the season.

"We understand how big the game is. I'm not sure if at times everybody wants to say that that's a heck of a win, but it is what it is," Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy said. "You very seldom go on the road and win by more than three touchdowns with teams that are undefeated in conference play in the middle of November."

A resurgent Texas had won six in a row and this week returned to the Top 25 after a two-month absence. Now the Longhorns (7-3, 6-1) are almost certain to fall unranked again, but more costly in this blowout was relinquishing control of their destiny in the Big 12.

Texas and Oklahoma State still have yet to face undefeated No. 4 Baylor, which was playing Texas Tech later Saturday. The Cowboys host the Bears next week.

Chelf threw for 197 yards and an interception. He was also Oklahoma State's leading rusher, running for 95 yards that were largely piled up with long sprints from the shotgun that cut through the middle of the Texas defense.

Texas running back Malcolm Brown ran for 79 yards and a touchdown.

Texas' previous worst loss at home under Brown was a 34-12 defeat by UCLA in 2010. The Longhorns now have now been blown out at home twice this season after losing 44-23 to Ole Miss in September.

Brown bemoaned missed chances against Oklahoma State and said the Longhorns offense "didn't do anything" after the first drive of the second half. Yet he still tried to look ahead and didn't write-off the season.

"They're disappointed but they know their goals are still in place. They just don't control their own destiny," Brown said.

A close first half turned into a runaway behind two near-misses by Texas in a span of less than a minute. First up was Texas safety Adrian Phillips missing a would-be interception in the end zone, with the ball ricocheting off his hands and into the arms of Tracy Moore for an Oklahoma State touchdown.

Even more deflating for Texas was the ensuing Texas drive, when Cowboys safety Justin Gilbert picked off Case McCoy just 18 seconds before halftime and returned it 43 yards for another score.

McCoy finished 26 for 39 for 221 yards and would throw two more interceptions. Linebacker Caleb Lavey picked off one of them, running it back to Texas' 21 to set up a Chelf touchdown pass to Charlie Moore on the very next play.

"It's really exciting to know that we still have a chance. We're still behind Baylor, which is a great team. We'll definitely get started preparing for them tomorrow," Lavey said.

Charlie Moore led all Oklahoma State receivers with six catches for 83 yards.

Oklahoma State played without leading wide receiver Josh Stewart, who didn't make the trip after appearing to injure his left leg in a win over Kansas last week. Stewart is also the nation's leading punt returner, but aside from understudy David Glidden bobbling a few catches, the Cowboys hardly noticed his absence.

On hand to watch Brown's worst loss ever at Royal Memorial Stadium was new athletic director Steve Patterson, who was hired from Arizona State earlier this month to replace DeLoss Dodds. Patterson has said he doesn't intend to "make change just for the sake of making changes" as he takes over the nation's wealthiest athletic department.

Brown began the season talking about Texas being ready to compete for a national title again after a run of uneven seasons since losing to Alabama in the title game in 2009. But the Longhorns instead started out by losing badly to BYU on the road and getting blown out at home by Ole Miss.

Speculation about Brown's future intensified after revelations that the agent of Alabama coach Nick Saban had talked to University of Texas regents a few days after the Crimson Tide won the national championship last season.

2012 LONGHORN SOCCER SCHEDULE        2012 LONGHORN VOLLEYBALL SCHEDULE

UT News TEXAS VOLLEYBALL WINS NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP -- (UT Sports News) - Junior two-time All-America outside hitter Bailey Webster recorded 14 kills Saturday while hitting .500 (14-1-26) as the Texas Longhorns won the 2012 NCAA Division I Women's Volleyball national championship with a 3-0 sweep over the Oregon Ducks (25-11, 26-24, 25-19). The Longhorns won their third national championship for women's volleyball and second NCAA title (1988). With the win, the University of Texas now has 47 NCAA all-time championships and 50 overall titles.

Texas (29-4) earned the championship after rallying from a 2-1 deficit on Thursday against Michigan to advance to tonight's title match in front of 16,448 fans, the second-largest crowd for a championship match in tournament history.

The Longhorns hit .438 as a team with only four errors against 43 kills. Texas out-blocked Oregon by a 15-1 margin, holding the Ducks to a negative .083 in the first set. Haley Eckerman had 12 kills, five digs and one block while hitting .400 for Texas while senior Sha'Dare McNeal had eight kills with no errors, hitting .471. Molly McCage tied a season-high with eight blocks while Khat Bell chipped in six blocks. Junior setter Hannah Allison guided the offense with 35 assists and five blocks.

Liz Brenner and Katherine Fischer had 13 kills each for Oregon (30-5). Alaina Bergsma, who was named 2012 AVCA National Player of the Year yesterday, was held to a .000 hitting night with nine kills and nine errors. Lauren Plum had 41 assists and six digs for the Ducks, who finished with a .202 hitting percentage.

Texas raced out to a quick start in set one against Oregon with a 9-3 run. The Longhorns would hit .400 in the set and push the lead to a 20-7 score. Eckerman had two of the last kills as the Longhorns out-blocked the Ducks by a 7-0 margin to set the tempo. Oregon made the adjustments in set two as both teams worked to a 10-10 tie. Plum and Ariana Williams helped Oregon get to a 14-11 lead. After trailing 17-13 and taking a timeout, Texas scored four straight points to tie it. Oregon returned the favor with three straight points, but the Longhorns would answer after trailing by a 23-21 score. Eckerman and Webster went back-to-back to tie it as UO took its second timeout. Eckerman, who had not recorded a service ace for the entire postseason, used the break as good timing as her first service ace gave set point to Texas. Brenner tied it, but it was Webster who would score two straight kills to send Texas into the intermission with the 2-0 lead.

With a 4-4 tie in the third set, Texas broke away with four straight points and would not relinquish the lead. Oregon got within two at 17-15, but three blocks by the Longhorns would finish off the Ducks. The championship clincher came when Bell and Allison blocked Brenner to set off the celebration for the Longhorns.

Notes: Along with the .438 tonight, the Longhorns' .360 hitting percentage for both matches of the Finals set a new record (108 kills with 19 attack errors and 247 attempts)...this was the first national championship for Texas head coach Jerritt Elliott, who was named 2012 AVCA Division I Coach of the Year...Texas is now 3-1 all-time against Oregon...Bailey Webster's .370 hitting percentage for the Finals was the fourth-best in Finals history since 2008...Haley Eckerman finished the season with 504 kills, becoming just the ninth player in Texas history to register 500 or more kills in a season (finishes eighth on the single-season list)...Eckerman's 1,257 attempts for the season were the fifth-most in school history...Khat Bell finished the season with a 1.38 blocks-per-set average, the fifth-best in school history...the Longhorns' 3.04 blocks-per-set average is the eighth-best in school history...the Longhorns finished the season with a .325 hitting percentage, fourth-best in school history...looking towards next season, the Longhorns lose only Sha'Dare McNeal (senior-graduating).

UT News UT SOCCER WINS SPRING GAME -- (UT Sports Info) - The Texas Soccer team improved to 3-0 during its spring season with a 1-0 victory over North Texas on Saturday afternoon inside Mike A. Myers Stadium and Soccer Field. The lone goal of the match occurred just before the end of the first 30-minute period. Saturday's match consisted of three 30-minute periods.

The score came off a corner kick as Sharis Lachappelle served up a curling left-footed cross that found the head of the towering Lindsey Meyer on the back post. Meyer's header sent the ball into the near upper corner of the goal.

While the North Texas goalie was able to swat the ball out of her own goal, the referee ruled that the ball had crossed the line. Even if the ball had not been ruled to have crossed the line, Texas' Allison Smith was there to knock the rebound back into the goal.

Texas relied on its solid back line to hang on for the victory. Last year, Texas' defense was one of the best in the Big 12 Conference. With all of its back four returning, UT expects to be just as good if not better next year.

"I thought the back line was really good today, and I told them that after the game," head coach Angela Kelly said. "We just keep getting better and better as a team. I'm really pleased with the girls so far this spring."

Texas has two more exhibitions this spring. The next is at Texas State on March 23. The Longhorns wrap up their spring season at Rice on April 7.

HORNS EDGE TEXAS TECH -- (UT Sports News) - Junior catcher Jacob Felts hit a walk-off double in the bottom of the ninth inning as the Texas Longhorns defeated the Texas Tech Red Raiders, 2-1, Saturday afternoon at UFCU Disch-Falk Field. The win ties the weekend series with the Red Raiders after Texas dropped the opener, 1-0, Friday night. Texas (12-6, 1-1) has now won six of the last seven games.

In the final frame for the Longhorns, junior Madison Carter drew a one-out walk. Felts then belted a fly ball to deep center as Texas Tech center fielder Brett Bell was unable to make the grab on the run as the ball glanced off his glove to plate Carter. It was the third time this season at UFCU Disch-Falk Field that the Longhorns have earned a walk-off victory in the ninth.

Texas sophomore pitcher Dillon Peters struck out a career-high seven batters, allowing one run and five hits over 8 1/3 innings, earning a no-decision in the longest stint of his career.

Texas Tech (13-8, 1-1) pitcher Trey Masek struck out six Longhorn batters and allowed six hits and one run over eight innings. Freshman Johnathon Tripp (0-1) relieved Masek and earned the loss.

Junior closer Corey Knebel (2-1) earned the win after entering the game in the ninth with the bases loaded and one out and striking out Tim Proudfoot and Mason Randolph. Bryant Burleson hit a one-out double off Peters and intentionally walked Eric Gutierrez before Jarrard Poteete loaded the bases with a single.

UT center fielder Weston Hall hit Masek's first pitch in the bottom of the first into left field for a single. After stealing second, he scored on Erich Weiss' single up the middle and snapped Masek's consecutive scoreless innings streak to open the 2013 campaign at 32 1/3 innings. Weiss finished with a 3-for-4 game for the Longhorns.

Texas Tech catcher Mason Rudolph scored in the top of the third to tie it up 1-1. The Red Raiders had runners at first and second with no outs after Rudolph drew a leadoff walk and Jake Barrios was hit by a pitch. After a groundout by Zach Davis pushed the runners to second and third, Devon Conley grounded out to score Randolph from third.

In the top of the seventh, Gutierrez reached on an infield single and stole second with two outs. Proudfoot singled to center field, but Gutierrez was thrown out at the plate on a strong relay throw by freshman shortstop C.J Hinojosa.

The series concludes Sunday at 1 p.m.

Notes: Texas Tech starter Trey Masek had his streak of consecutive scoreless innings to start the 2013 season halted at 32 1/3 innings...Texas is now 6-2 in one-run games this season...the Longhorns have stolen 29 bases this season while only allowing four...C.J Hinojosa had his season-high hitting streak snapped at eight games today...the Longhorns' pitching staff has a 2.13 ERA in 15 games at UFCU Disch-Falk Field while opponents have hit only .212 against them...Dillon Peters has a 1.97 ERA this season with opponents hitting .222 against him...Peters' previous best for strikeouts was six, set last season against Texas A&M.

UT News MEN'S HOOPS FALL TO K.STATE -- (AP Sports) - Rodney McGruder scored 24 points and sparked an 11-0 run in the second half, lifting No. 11 Kansas State past Texas 66-49 on Thursday night in the quarterfinals of the Big 12 tournament.

Julien Lewis scored 13 points and Jonathan Holmes had 10 for Texas (16-17).

The Wildcats (26-6) held a 43-36 lead midway through the second half when McGruder's one-handed floater ignited the run that put the game out of reach.

Sheldon McClellan and Lewis hit back-to-back 3-pointers for Texas to cut the lead to 58-47, but that was as close as the Longhorns would get.

Longhorns point guard Myck Kabongo, who scored 24 points in Kansas State's 81-69 victory at Texas, had seven assists but was 0 for 5 from the floor and scored only two points. Since returning from a 23-game NCAA suspension, the 6-1 sophomore had led the Longhorns with nearly 16 points a game.

The Wildcats fell behind early but seized the lead when the Longhorns turned the ball over on three straight possessions and left Will Spradling all alone for a 3-pointer.

The Wildcats closed the game on an 8-0 run, including another bucket by McGruder.

TEXAS WOMEN DOWN OKLAHOMA -- (UT Sports Info) - Texas (5-7, 1-0 Big 12) won the doubles point and five of six singles matches on its way to a 6-1 win over Oklahoma (8-4, 2-1 Big 12) Friday afternoon at UT's Penick-Allison Tennis Center.

Texas won the doubles contests at the first and third positions to claim the doubles point. At first doubles, UT's 19th-ranked duo of Breaunna Addison and Noel Scott broke OU's 14th-ranked tandem of Hermon Brhane and Whitney Ritchie at four-all for a 5-4 lead. Texas took the next three games to close out the match, 8-4.

OU's Mia Lancaster and Abbi Melrose opened up a 2-1 lead at third doubles over UT's Lina Padegimaite and Juliana Gajic, but the Longhorns won each game thereafter and cruised to an 8-2 win to seal the doubles point. The Sooners won the remaining match at second doubles, 8-5.

Padegimaite, the reigning Big 12 Conference Freshman of the Year, picked up where she left off last season and started league play with a 6-0, 6-1 win over OU's Whitney Wofford at fifth singles. OU sliced the Texas lead to 2-1 when UT's Gajic retired in the first set at sixth singles, but UT asserted control seized the remaining four matches.

Texas' 42nd-ranked Ellis pushed the Longhorns' lead to 3-1 behind a 6-2, 6-2 win over OU's 106th-ranked Brhane at first singles. UT's Begley clinched the victory with a 6-2, 6-2 win over OU's Melrose at fourth singles.

The Longhorns' Addison was victorious in her first career Big 12 match, as the Floridian posted a 6-3, 6-4 win over Oklahoma's Ritchie at second singles. Texas' Scott trailed OU's Lancaster, 5-2 in the first set at third singles before capturing the ensuing five games to take the set, 7-5. Scott topped Lancaster in the second set, 6-4 only seconds after Addison's victory to close out the 6-1 Texas win.

MEN'S GOLF WINS NCAA CHAMPIONSHIP -- (UT Sports Info) - Texas senior All-American Dylan Frittelli sunk a dramatic 30-foot putt on the 18th green to clinch a 3-2 win over Alabama and claim the Longhorns' third national title in the match play final of the 2012 NCAA Men's Golf Championships at Riviera C.C. in Pacific Palisades, Calif., on Sunday.

Texas won its first men's golf national crown since back-to-back wins in 1971-72 thanks to a comeback victory after the Longhorns went down 2-0. The win today was also the Longhorns' eighth this season.

The University of Texas captures its 46th all-time NCAA Championship team title and 50th overall National Championship. It marks UT's first NCAA team title since Men's Swimming and Diving claimed its crown in March 2010.

The Crimson Tide, which finished first in the 54-hole stroke play tournament to qualify as the No. 1-seed in the eight-team match play field earlier this week, trailed much of the final round, save for its final pairing.

Alabama senior Hunter Hamrick quickly went out to a six-hole lead through nine holes against Texas junior Julio Vegas, but the rest of his Alabama teammates were in tight matches.

That was the case for the first pairing that became official. Alabama sophomore Bobby Wyatt had just gone down by a hole after 16 to Texas sophomore Toni Hakula, but eagled 17 and then birdied 18 to give Alabama a 1-0 lead. Shortly after, Hamrick finalized his own win, closing down Vegas, 6 & 5, with a par on 13.

Meanwhile, in the third pairing of Alabama junior Scott Strohmeyer and Texas junior Cody Gribble, the action ended on 17. Gribble never trailed throughout the match and his birdie on 17 gave him a 2 & 1 win and cut the Tide's lead in half.

The marquee matchup of two of the best amateurs in the country in freshmen Justin Thomas of Alabama and Jordan Spieth of Texas had been one-sided much of the day and Spieth had taken a 3-hole lead on 15.

Thus, all attention turned to the second pairing of Alabama sophomore Cory Whitsett and Texas' Frittelli. Whitsett birdied the par-5 17th hole to tie the match and send fans flocking to 18.

By the time Whitsett and Frittelli were on the 18th green, Spieth had wrapped up his win over Thomas, 3 & 2.

Back on 18, Whitsett whiffed on his chip from the fringe before sending his second attempt to within a makeable bogey distance. But Frittelli, needing only a two-put, erased any doubt by sinking his championship-clinching putt from the edge of the green.

WOMEN'S GOLF AT NCAA -- (UT Sports Info) - The Texas Women's Golf team saved its best for the final round of the 2012 NCAA Championship when it fired a 2-under-par 286 at Legends Golf Club to finish tied for 13th place at 39-over 1191 (297-295-313-286). The Longhorns entered Friday's fourth round in 20th place, but climbed seven places on the final leaderboard with a pair of under-par rounds by senior Nicole Vandermade (71) and junior Desiree Dubreuil (70).

Like Texas, Dubreuil went out with her best round of the competition at 2-under 70. She played her first eight holes at even before carding back-to-back birdies on nine and 10. As many bogeys on the next two holes pushed her scorecard back to even, but Dubreuil found two final birdie opportunities on the 14th and 15th holes and made three more pars to finish at -2. Dubreuil (81-75-81-70=307, +19) finished tied for 93rd on the individual leaderboard.

Vandermade (76-72-78-71) and freshman Bertine Strauss (74-76-74-72) also carded tournament-bests Friday morning. Strauss' even-par 72 gave her a 72-hole total of 8-over 296 for a team-best tie for 33rd place. Vandermade finished one stroke back to tie for 38th place in her final collegiate event.

Juniors Katelyn Sepmoree (71-76-80-76=303, +15) and Haley Stephens (76-72-83-73=304) rounded out the Texas squad in ties for 71st and 77th places, respectively.

Alabama (286-285-306-294) captured the team championship at 19-over 1171, besting Southern Cal (297-288-294-293) by one stroke. The Tide clinched the title when Brooke Pancake made a five-foot putt to save par on 18. Oklahoma's Chirpat Jao-Javanil took the individual title at 6-under (69-73-70-70=282). Pancake placed second with a 2-under 286 (68-70-75-73).
