Cedric Benson scored five touchdowns and Vince Young had a strong passing game to help No. 6 Texas overcame a 35-7 first-half deficit for a 56-35 victory over No. 19 Oklahoma State (6-3, 3-3) in the Big 12. It was the biggest comeback in school history.

Young passed for 278 yards and a touchdown and ran for another score, and Benson's fourth TD gave Texas its first lead at 42-35 early in the fourth quarter.

In 111 years of playing football, the biggest deficit the Longhorns (8-1, 5-1) had ever overcome to win was 19 points three seasons ago in a Holiday Bowl win over Washington.
