Baylor vs. Kansas State recap: Bears dominate Wildcats in Big 12 showdown

Ronald Martinez

The Baylor Bears became bowl eligible by taking out the Big 12 leading Kansas State Wildcats in a game no one saw coming.

The Kansas State Wildcats had their chance. Unfortunately, the target on Bill Snyder's team was just too much against the Baylor Bears. In a result very few could have foretold, the Baylor Bears dominated the Kansas State Wildcats. 52-24. It was a score that was likely predicted the other way.

Bill Snyder's team had stepped into the No. 1 overall BCS Ranking just one week prior. Facing the Baylor Bears, Collin Klein and company had a chance to take the Big 12 title and start to think about national championship aspirations. It turns out that they now have to think about maintaining their hold on a BCS bowl game.

There's no denying the overall dominance by the Bears on Saturday night. K-State rushed for only 2.5 yards per carry. Kansas State had 7 penalties for 60 yards. They also forced 3 interceptions from Collin Klein. On the offensive side, the team rushed for an incredible 342 yards and 5 touchdowns, averaging an incredible 7 yards per carry. In short, the Bears held the line of scrimmage all night and did whatever they wanted.

Whether it was the big play, like Lache Seastrunk's late 80-yard run, or special teams, like Aaron Jones' 50-yard field goal in the 4th quarter, Baylor had this game in their sights all week long.

Now K-State faces a major drop in the rankings and must win against Texas next week to win the Big 12.
