Baylor stuns No. 1 K-State
Waco, TX (Sports Network) - Baylor came into this weekend against No. 1 Kansas State ranked last in the country in defense. The Bears exited Saturday's game with one of the biggest upsets of the season, and stopped Heisman Trophy candidate Collin Klein in a 52-24 victory, and sent a devastating blow to the Wildcats' national championship hopes.
Baylor (5-5, 2-5 Big 12) headed into this week ranked second in total offense in the nation, but last in yardage given up at 520 per game. The Bears picked off Klein three times, including two from Joe Williams.
At the end of the game, Floyd Casey Stadium was a sea of green and gold.
The first loss for the Wildcats (10-1, 7-1) will drop them from No. 1 in the Bowl Championship Series standings with the likely outcome Sunday moving Notre Dame into one of the top two positions. Notre Dame dismantled Wake Forest, 38-0 Saturday.
Oregon, which held the No. 2 BCS ranking, lost in overtime against Stanford, 17-14, Saturday night. Alabama, which was No. 4 in the BCS, pounded Western Carolina, 49-0.
The duo of Lache Seastrunk and Glasco Martin shredded K-State's defense. Seastruk had 185 yards and a touchdown and Martin 113 yards and three TDs. Nick Florence completed 20-of-32 passes for 238 yards with two scores and a pair of interceptions.
Klein ended 27-of-50 for 286 yards with a pair of touchdowns, but the Wildcats came up short in their bid to clinch a share of the Big 12 title.
