COLLEGE STATION, Texas (Ticker) -- Courtney Lewis rushed for 120 yards and one touchdown as Texas A&M avoided its second three-game losing streak of the season with a 45-33 victory over Kansas in a Big 12 Conference contest.
Texas A&M (4-5, 2-3 Big 12) snapped a 14-14 halftime tie with a 24-point third quarter. Aggies defensive back Jaxson Appel returned a fumble by Derrick Mills five yards to make it 21-14 just 15 seconds into the second half.
Lewis added a 25-yard TD run and Derek Farmer added a two-yard score with 1:36 left in the third quarter for a 38-20 advantage.
Kansas' Adam Barmann had a spectacular debut, setting a school record for passing yards by a freshman with 294. Barmann was 25-of-37 and threw for four touchdowns and ran for another.
Reggie McNeal was 11-of-18 for 259 yards and one touchdown for Texas A&M, which racked up 547 yards of total offense. The Aggies managed just 22 points in losing their last two games to Nebraska and Oklahoma State.
Kansas (5-4, 2-3) lost for the third time in four games and has surrendered 87 points in its last two contests. The Jayhawks have lost six straight meetings with the Aggies since capturing the inaugural matchup in 1974.
