Baylor moves to 5-0, dominates Kansas State

K-State tries to rebound from rare Klieman loss vs Baylor

K-State tries to rebound from rare Klieman loss vs Baylor

Baylor didn't win a conference road game last season, but had success in its first attempt this season on Saturday, beating Kansas State 31-12 to remain undefeated. Hubbard led Oklahoma State rushing with 296 yards in the 26-13 win over Kansas State. It came in his first Big 12 matchup and ended a flawless start to his career in the Flint Hills. Their loss to Oklahoma State last weekend was the first time they failed to score at least 31 points in a game, and they gained just 242 yards of offense.

Known in the past for offense, the Bears have actually been led by an impressive defense. The Bears scored on a 98-yard touchdown drive 2 minutes, 28 seconds later, but it was a lovely punt.

Klieman opened Tuesday's press conference by mentioning the explosive plays and offensive struggles on third down as two big factors in the loss. "We can't allow that to happen", K-State senior defensive tackle Jordan Mittie said.

"Obviously it was a tough loss", Kansas State quarterback Skylar Thompson said, "but the energy and spirit in our team is nothing is changed". I've got to be better and make sure to push the right buttons.

K-State forced Baylor into a third-and-22 on the following drive, and it seemed like the Wildcats might still make things interesting trailing 17-6 early in the fourth quarter, especially when Gerry Bohanon came on for an injured Baylor quarterback Charlie Brewer. Unbeaten Baylor will travel to Kansas State, and TCU will face Iowa State in a critical game for both. "It was 3-3 and both defenses were playing well", K-State head coach Chris Klieman said. "The seniors have to be better, everybody's got to get invested a little bit more so that we can get this thing turned". The first time, the Bears responded with a six-play, 98-yard touchdown drive in the second quarter to go up 10-3.

The Jayhawks have looked good only once this season, and are now 1-4 ATS in their last five home games. They have scored a total of 25 points in Big 12 play. Given the problems Baylor had last week kicking, I give the edge in a tight game to the home side. The Wildcats did a lot of things right against the Bears, but they also made big mistakes.

Not while Baylor churned out 426 yards behind a balanced attack that featured 230 yards from Brewer and 50-plus yards from five different skill players.

Wildcat punter Devin Anctil twice pinned Baylor inside its on 10-yard line. Baylor is coming from a hard-fought 23-21 triumph over Iowa State. It takes more than that to win games in this league.

Finding solutions on offense will nearly certainly be Klieman's primary task as the Wildcats get two weeks to prepare for their next game, against TCU.

Kansas State has their second bye week before hosting TCU on October 19.

While the Kansas State Wildcats surprised us all to start the season, we're now seeing K-State show more of what we expected. It doesn't get much bigger than the game against Oklahoma next week, so if the Longhorns are able to get ahead by a wide margin early, they might rest starters earlier than normal.
