K-State’s clear run to title blocked

(Continued)

WACO, Texas —

Klein threw two touchdowns and ran for another, but his three interceptions matched his total for the first 10 games. He was sacked twice, hit countless other times and couldn’t get in the end zone on four consecutive carries after first-and-goal from the 6, the last two attempts from the 1.

“They thought they were going to come down here and just roll over us, but we weren’t about to let that happen,” Baylor nickleback Ahmad Dixon said. “We wanted to jump on them early and see how they would respond. They haven’t been behind all year, so it was good to score on the first drive.”

Bears defensive coordinator Phil Bennett was once Snyder’s defensive coordinator at Kansas State.

Baylor led less than 2 minutes into the game when Nick Florence threw a 38-yard TD pass to Tevin Reese. After K-State responded with a quick touchdown, the Bears overcame a 95-yard kickoff return being nullified by a penalty with Florence’s 12-yard keeper that put Baylor ahead to stay.

Kansas State, which hadn’t trailed by more than seven points all season, was down 28-7 when Glasco Martin had the first of his three TD runs with 2:54 left in the first half.

“We just didn’t handle the environment as well as we should. We had six penalties in the first half, all on defense. Four offside penalties. Just lining up offsides. That’s discipline,” Snyder said. “Without discipline, you can play hard and want to and all that, but then you make those kind of mistakes. We made mistakes across the board. Couldn’t move the ball on offense.”

The Wildcats did score 10 points in the final 1:47 before halftime, and had the ball to start the second half.

Klein had a 13-yard run on the first play of the second half, then had two incompletions before being picked off in the middle of the field. After Baylor needed only four plays for a touchdown, Klein missed on three more passes before a punt that pinned the Bears at their own 1.
