No. 2 Kansas State, Klein upset 52-24 at Baylor
BAYLOR 52, KANSAS ST 24

By STEPHEN HAWKINS
AP Sports Writer

WACO, Texas (AP) -- Collin Klein and second-ranked Kansas State
can still get to a BCS game. Getting to the BCS championship
game is all but lost.



"Anger, frustration, obviously disappointment," Wildcats tight
end Travis Tannahill said as he described his feelings after a
52-24 loss at Baylor on Saturday night. "Confused. We just don't
know what went wrong. We had a good week of practice. We felt
prepared, everything we've done the last 10 games."



Except win.



"It's a hard one," Klein said.



Glasco Martin ran for three touchdowns, Lache Seastrunk had 185
yards rushing with an 80-yard score and the Bears again upset
the BCS picture with a late-season victory.



A week after the Wildcats (10-1, 7-1 Big 12) took over the No. 1
spot in the BCS standings following defending national champion
Alabama's loss, it now looks like it's going to somebody else's
turn at the top.



Maybe Notre Dame, which could get its championship shot after
Kansas State and No. 1 Oregon both lost. And the Crimson Tide
suddenly is back in the title picture, along with a couple of
other SEC teams.



Also, K-State quarterback Klein may be a Heisman Trophy
front-runner no more after throwing three interceptions and
getting sacked twice while being pressured and harassed all
night. He threw for 286 yards and two touchdowns, but had only
39 yards on 17 carries with a score.



On first-and-goal from the 6 in the fourth quarter, Klein had
four straight carries and couldn't score - twice trying from the
1.



"I don't know if I would call it getting smacked in the mouth,
but they took it to us," coach Bill Snyder said. "I really
thought we prepared well, but as we found out, we didn't. I
don't think we handled the situation as well as we should have
been able to."



Nick Florence, Baylor's successor to Heisman winner Robert
Griffin III, completed 20 of 32 passes for 238 yards, and ran
nine times for 47 yards. Both of his passing touchdowns came in
the first half when the Bears (5-5, 2-5) jumped out to a 28-7
lead.



"All week we believed we were going to beat them and if we did
we weren't going to be surprised when it happened," Florence
said.



It was on the same weekend last November, on another Saturday
night in Waco, when Griffin and Baylor upset then fifth-ranked
Oklahoma after two teams ahead of the Sooners had already lost
that day.



Kansas State has plenty of time for this loss to simmer. The
Wildcats have Thanksgiving week off before playing their regular
season finale Dec. 1 at home against No. 18 Texas.



If the Wildcats beat Texas, they will be guaranteed at least a
share of the Big 12 title and get the league's automatic BCS
spot.



That may be the only solace after such a crushing loss against
Baylor, which still needs to win another game to be bowl
eligible.



The Bears hadn't beaten an opponent ranked so high since a 13-7
win over No. 2 Tennessee in the Sugar Bowl on New Year's Day
1957. They tied No. 1 Texas during the 1941 season.



Students and fans dressed in gold swarmed the field to celebrate
when Saturday night's game ended.



Klein, who finished 27 of 50 passing, had thrown only three
interceptions the first 10 games.



After Martin's 2-yard TD put Baylor up 28-7 with 2:54 left in
the first half, Kansas State scored 10 consecutive points before
the break - and then got the ball to start the second half, only
to have Klein throw his second interception.



Martin finished with 113 yards rushing.



There was a classic 13-yard run by Klein to start the second
half, then two deep incompletions before he was picked off by
Sam Holl, who returned it to the Kansas State 38. Four plays
later, after a Florence 13-yard keeper, Martin scored on a
4-yard run to make it 35-17.



"We gained a little bit of momentum and we just couldn't sustain
anything consistently over time," Klein said. "We definitely
knew we were going to have to play well to win. They just played
better than we did."



The Wildcats then got a 50-yard kickoff return from Tramaine
Thompson, but Klein had three consecutive incompletions leading
to a punt that pinned Baylor at its 1.



Florence threw an interception, Randall Evans grabbing the ball
at the 1 but immediately getting dragged down by intended
receiver Terrance Williams. Klein plunged in from a yard out on
the next play, but that would be the last score for the
Wildcats.



On the first play after Klein was picked off by Joe Williams in
the end zone late in the third quarter, Seastrunk took a handoff
and raced 80 yards for the score.



Chris Harper had 11 catches for 123 yards for the Wildcats.



Baylor scored less than 2 minutes into the game on Florence's
38-yard TD to Tevin Reese after completing passes to different
receivers on each of the first four plays.



The Bears then tried a short kickoff that K-State recovered. To
make it worse, a 15-yard penalty for interfering with the
returner set the Wildcats up at the Baylor 38 and led to Klein's
8-yard TD run.



A holding call wiped out a 95-yard return by Antwan Goodley on
the ensuing kickoff, but the Bears regrouped to go 75 yards in
11 plays for Florence's 12-yard TD run that made it 14-7.



Early in the second quarter, Klein was picked off by Williams on
a deep throw.



K-State had a fumble recovery nullified by an offside call. The
Wildcats jumped again on a third-and-9, and Florence took off
running for a 10-yard gain, plus an additional 15 yards when
Dante Barnett was flagged for unnecessary roughness for lowering
his shoulder and a hard hit on the Baylor quarterback, who threw
an interception two plays later.



About the only stretch that Klein really looked like himself was
that closing 2 minutes of the first half.



On the first play after Martin's score, Klein threw a 36-yard
pass to Harper and 5 yards to Tyler Lockett. After a pass
interference penalty against Baylor in the end zone put the ball
at the 7, Klein threw a TD to Harper,



Baylor then went three-and-out, with Barnett preventing a first
down with his open-field tackle of Reese on third down.



The Wildcats then had a 10-play drive in 51 seconds, capped by
Anthony Cantele's 23-yard field goal on the last play of the
half, right after Thompson's 22-yard reception.
