Texas Tech's Patrick Mahomes owns the best passing day of the season by a quarterback who doesn't play for Washington State.

Mahomes obliterated the Big 12 freshman record with his 598 yards passing in Saturday's 48-46 loss to Baylor. His teammate, Davis Webb, set the previous record of 462 yards against West Virginia last year.

In his last three outings — against Texas, Oklahoma and Baylor — Mahomes is 80 of 150 for 1,304 yards and 14 touchdowns, with two interceptions. Six of those TD passes came against Baylor.

His 598 yards passing were the most by a Texas Tech QB since Graham Harrell threw for 646 in 2007.

The only better passing performances this season were by Connor Halliday (734 yards) and Luke Falk (601), both of Washington State.
