Live Blog: Baylor 35, K-State 36

K-State stopped Baylor on four straight plays to clinch the game.

Arthur Brown intercepted a pass from Robert Griffin III and then Anthony Cantele connected on a 31-yard field goal to give K-State its first lead of the fourth quarter 36-35. Baylor has 3:10 to answer.

Collin Klein ran in a one-yard touchdown to pull Kansas State within 35-33 with 5:37 to play. If K-State’s defense can hold the Bears to a field goal or less it will have a chance to win the game on its final drive.

Robert Griffin just connected with wide receiver Kendall Wright for the best touchdown catch you will see all day. The throw, coming from the 35-yard line, was over Wright’s head. He dove for it, caught it, and kept both feet in bounds.

The Bears now lead 35-26.

Gameday Preview: Baylor at Kansas State

Here are five things to keep an eye on today when Baylor takes on Kansas State at 2:30 p.m. at Bill Snyder Family Stadium:

1. Robert Griffin III. It’s not often a white-hot quarterback comes to Manhattan, so enjoy watching this guy. Griffin, a Heisman Trophy contender, is off to a ridiculous start. Baylor is 3-0, ranked 15th nationally and he has thrown 13 touchdown passes compared to 12 interceptions. Craziest stat you’ve seen in a while, right?

2. Arthur Brown. We’ve already seen the drastic difference he has made on K-State’s defense, but today we will REALLY get to see it. A year ago, Griffin and Baylor’s offense chewed up K-State for 683 total yards and 47 points. The Bears put on a clinic. Despite all that, the Bears only won by five points. With Brown leading the way at linebacker, the Wildcats are a totally different group. How much less yardage will they allow today?

3. John Hubert. The sophomore running back is coming off a breakout game. Now we find out what he has in store for an encore. Last week’s 166-yard effort at Miami was impressive. Today he will take on his home-town college. Growing up in Waco, he always wanted to play for a Big 12 school, and accepted a scholarship from K-State the day it offered. There will be extra emotions for him today. Will that help or hurt his performance?
