Live Blog: Baylor 35, K-State 36

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

3:10 FOURTH QUARTER
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.

5:37 FOURTH QUARTER
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.

3:08 THIRD QUARTER
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?
