Charlie Brewer threw three touchdown passes and Baylor opened Big 12 play with a 26-7 victory over Kansas on Saturday to end a rare winning streak by the Jayhawks.

Brewer completed 19 of 27 passes for 221 yards and added 56 yards rushing for the Bears (3-1, 1-0 Big 12), who have already tripled their victory total from last year when their only win in coach Matt Rhule's first season came at Kansas.

Baylor had a 23-0 halftime lead after Brewer had TD passes to three different receivers.

Brewer took every snap against Kansas until graduate transfer Jalan McClendon came in with less than four minutes left for the final drive, the two quarterbacks had shared time more extensively the first three games.

Kansas (2-2, 0-1) entered the game with consecutive wins for the first time since a 2-0 start in 2011.

A 31-7 victory two weeks ago at Central Michigan ended the second-longest road losing streak in college football history, 46 games since 2009.

Kansas got its only touchdown late in the third quarter when Jeremiah Booker caught a 10-yard score from Peyton Bender.

The Jayhawks still haven't won a Big 12 road game in nearly 10 years.

They have lost 41 true Big 12 road games in a row since a 35-33 win at Iowa State on Oct. 4, 2008.

The Jayhawks will play host to Oklahoma State next Saturday.
