WACO, Texas, Oct. 27 (UPI) -- Ricky Williams for a 153 yards and a career-high four touchdowns Saturday as Texas Tech cruised to a 63-19 Big 12 Conference victory over Baylor.
Williams, who carried 19 times, had touchdown runs of two, 37 and five yards in the first half, during which the Red Raiders (4-3, 2-3 Big 12 South) raced to a 49-6 lead.
Kliff Kingsbury tossed a 33-yard touchdown pass to Carlos Francis to give the Red Raiders a 21-0 lead after the first period.
The special teams and the defense accounted for the Red Raiders' next four scores.
Wes Walker's 59-yard punt return set up Williams' five-yard scoring run that made it 28-0 just 1:25 into the second quarter. The Red Raiders scored four touchdowns before Baylor even managed a first down.
Kevin Curtis' 15-yard interception return set up on Kingsburry's three-yard TD pass to Cole Roberts with 8:23 left in the half.
Things continued to get worse for Baylor (2-5, 0-5) as Ryan Aycock's 19-yard interception return put the Red Raiders up 42-0 and Paul McClendon recovered a fumble and raced 21 yards for a touchdown with 1:53 left in the half.
Baylor finally got on the board five seconds before the intermission on Reggie Newhouse's 40-yard reception.
Williams' final touchdown came from two yards out late in the third quarter.
He recorded his first 100-yard game since the final contest of 1998, his sophomore season. He missed 1999 with a knee injury and struggled last season with just 421 yards.
Kingsbury completed 27 of 44 passes for 245 yards for the Red Raiders, who posted their highest point since the formation of the Big 12.
Baylor, which suffered a 33-17 loss to Oklahoma last week, has dropped 26 consecutive conference games. Its last Big 12 win was on Oct. 10, 1998, a 31-24 victory over Kansas.
