Baylor Ends Regular Season with Win Over Kansas State

ThinkStock(WACO, Texas) -- The Baylor Bears earned a share of their second straight Big 12 Championship with a 38-27 win over ninth-ranked Kansas State on Saturday. The win also keeps number six Baylor (11-1) in the running for a spot in the inaugural College Football Playoff.

The Bears opened the game with a pair of rushing touchdowns from Bryce Petty and Shock Linwood that immediately gave them the upper hand. The Wildcats (9-3) got on the board in the second quarter as Charles Jones scored from 1 yard out, but the defense was unable to stop Baylor's high-octane attack. Baylor answered every Kansas State score with a scoring drive of their own, holding a 24-14 lead at halftime.

Baylor added two more touchdowns in the third and went up 38-20 before the Wildcats made a run in the fourth quarter. Jake Waters hit Tyler Lockett for an 8-yard touchdown pass to get Kansas State within 11, but they were unable to get any closer. 

The Bears now hope they are part of the four-team playoff, which currently has TCU in ahead of Baylor, when the final rankings are announced Sunday at noon. Baylor defeated the Horned Frogs in their only head-to-head meeting while TCU clinched a share of the conference crown with a blowout win over Illinois State on Saturday.

Big 12 Title Preview

iStockPhoto/Thinkstock(WACO, Texas) -- The Baylor Bears will have to win on Saturday against Kansas State to keep their College Football playoff hopes alive.

Baylor sits on the outside looking in at No. 5 in the rankings, and winning the Big 12 title could boost their chances of getting one of the top four spots.

"Down to a one games season. That's the way we're looking at it," Baylor head coach Art Briles said this week. "We're going to try and win every possession Saturday and take care of business."

Baylor is going for back-to-back Big 12 titles.

"Making history is about winning football games," Briles said. "We're winning games and trying to create a consistency in the program; trying to prove that we belong with the nation's elite in college football."

Baylor quarterback Bryce Petty is set to play despite suffering concussion-related symptoms from a hit he took last weekend.

Still, Kansas State head coach Bill Snyder is ready for the game.

"They're obviously a very talented well coached football team," he said.  "It is a great challenge."

Gary Patterson Says Kansas State Will Be a 'Tough Task'

Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(FORTH WORTH, Texas) -- The sixth-ranked Horned Frogs (7-1) will host seventh-ranked Kansas State (7-1) on Saturday in a Big 12 showdown.

TCU head coach Gary Patterson is preparing his team for a battle against the Cougars.

"They're always good at special teams. Tyler Lockett is averaging almost 20 yards a return on punts. They've been getting up early, especially at home," Patterson said. "We've been playing well at home, but they've been getting after people. They play well against the run. It's definitely a tough task."

Patterson has a lot of respect for K-State head coach Bill Snyder. He's led the team to a 5-0 record in the Big 12.

"He's won big ball games. He's done just about everything. He's one of those guys who thinks about it 24 hours a day," Patterson said. "That's what he loves to do."

Synder knows his team will get all they can handle on Saturday. "They're always going to be a good physical defensive football team," he said. "They're very sound with their special teams."

No. 11 Kansas State Blanks Texas

Ed Zurga/Getty Images(MANHATTAN, KS) -- The Kansas State Wildcats rolled over the Texas Longhorns with a 23-0 victory Saturday.

The Wildcats remain undefeated in Big 12 play and pushed thier overall record to 6-1.

Quarterback Jake Waters threw for 224 yards and trusty receiver Tyler Lockett caught eight passes for 103 yards. Kansas State scored both of their touchdowns on the ground on the legs of DeMarcus Robinson and Charles Jones.

The Longhorns continue to adjust under the new regime of head coach Charlie Strong.  With a now 3-5 record, inconsistency continues to be the bane of Texas football. Quarterback Tyrone Swoopes was 13-25 for only 106 yards.

(14) Kansas State Holds Off (11) Oklahoma

Ed Zurga/Getty Images(NORMAN, Okla.) -- A blocked extra point and a pair of missed field goals helped the 14th-ranked Kansas State Wildcats knock off number 11 Oklahoma, 31-30, on Saturday. Sooners kicker Michael Hunnicutt missed a field goal that would have given Oklahoma the lead with less than four minutes to play.

"I feel for Michael," Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops said. "He's been an excellent kicker for us and a great young man. We all love him. I feel that for him, because unfortunately, the kicker, that just kind of sticks out."

"The youngster that missed the field goal, he will go another hundred years without missing another field goal," said Kansas State head coach Bill Snyder. "So we were just lucky. That happens."

The contest went back-and-forth throughout, with the Wildcats (5-1) taking a 21-17 lead into halftime. Hunnicutt's first missed field goal, a 32-yard try that went wide left, came at the end of the first half. Kansas State come out of the locker room and added to their lead, a 27-yard field goal to make it 24-17.

Both squads traded touchdowns in the third quarter, giving Kansas State a 31-24 lead heading into the final period. Oklahoma (5-2) was able to drive the ball and score Trevor Knight touchdown pass to Durron Neal. However, Hunnicutt's extra point was blocked by Travis Britz.

The Sooners eventually got the ball back and reached the Kansas State 1-yard line. After not being able to put the ball in the end zone for the win, Hunnicutt's 19-yard chip shot missed and the Wildcats were able to run out the clock.

K-State Upends (15) Texas, 74-57

Joe Robbins/Getty Images(MANHATTAN, Kan.) -- Marcus Foster came through in a big way for Kansas State (16-7) on Saturday in their 74-57 win over Texas (18-5).

Foster scored a career-high 34 points and snapped the Longhorns' seven-game winning streak.

''Texas is a team that makes a lot of runs,'' Foster said. ''I just felt like they were making their run in trying to come back. I was in the right spot to make plays and my teammates found me.''

Kansas State led 39-18 and Foster's 34 points were the most for a Kansas State freshman since Michael Beasley scored 39 in 2008.

''They beat us any way you can get beat,'' Texas head coach Rick Barnes said. ''Right from the beginning whether you want to talk loose balls or from turning the ball over, you are not going to win with turning the ball over 18 times. Some of it had to do with them, but a lot of it had to do with what we were doing, too.''

Isaiah Taylor had 17 points for the Longhorns in the loss.

Angel Rodriguez Transfers to Miami

Jamie Squire/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Kansas State point guard Angel Rodriguez has transferred to the University of Miami.

The 5-foot-11 point guard, averaged 11.4 points and 5.2 assists last season, Rodriguez's sophomore, with the Wildcats.


“Angel is an exceptional point guard,” Miami head coach Jim Larranaga told The Miami Herald. “When you watch him you immediately notice his ball-handling and passing skills. He can also hit the open shot…He has a pass-first mentality, but if he sees an open lane, he won’t hesitate to attack. We feel very, very good about Angel joining our program.”

Rodriguez went to high school in Miami and a reason for the move is to be closer to his family in Puerto Rico. The Miami Herald reports Rodriguez will receive a hardship waiver from the NCAA so he doesn't have to sit out a season.
