(Stillwater-AP) -- The Oklahoma State Cowboys remain winless in the Big 12 Conference.

The Cowboys lost to Number 11 Texas 45-to-17 yesterday afternoon.

Chris Simms tied a school record with five touchdown passes in the game. The Longhorns scored 31 points in the second quarter to erase an early 10-to-nothing deficit.

Two of Simms' T-D passes went to Roy Williams in the final 25 seconds of the first half.

Texas tailback Cedric Benson ran for 131 yards, the first 100-yard game by a Longhorn player since Ricky Williams in 1995.

Texas is now 5-and-1 overall, 2-and-1 in the Big 12.

Oklahoma State falls to 2-and-4 and 0-and-3.
