AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Jerrod Heard threw an 84-yard touchdown pass to John Burt on Texas’ first offensive play and D’Onta Foreman ran 93-yards for a third quarter score as Texas routed winless Kansas 59-20 Saturday night.

Tyrone Swoopes ran for four touchdowns for Texas, two in the fourth quarter. He also threw a 40-yard touchdown in mop-up duty in the Longhorns’ highest-scoring game in two seasons, a week after being shut out by Iowa State.

Foreman’s run was the third-longest touchdown run in Texas (4-5, 3-3 Big 12) history.

Kansas (0-9, 0-6) has lost 37 in a row away from home. The Jayhawks have given up at least 58 points in three straight games

Kansas was within 24-14 late in the first half but had a drive end at the Texas 1 and the Jayhawks missed a short field goal on the final play.
