K-State came out and did what they have done all season inside of Bill Snyder Family Stadium, blew out the opponent on the other side of the field. K-State took the opening kickoff so the offense could get the bad taste of last week out of their mouths. Drove down the field and capped off the drive with an 18-yard touchdown pass from Will Howard to DJ Giddens. Baylor then drove down the field themselves and capped off the drive with a 13-yard Blake Shapen touchdown pass.


Turning point:


After K-State scored again to go up 14-7 in the game Baylor had the ball back but the Kansas State defense came up big with a Cody Stufflebean forced fumble and a Desmond Purnell 'scoop and score' to take a 21-7 lead and Kansas State would not look back winning 59-25.


Kansas State History Made:


Will Howard with a 2-yard pass to Christian Moore in the second quarter, became the all-time Kansas State touchdown pass leader with 45 in his career.


Game MVP:


Another almost equally important award for Will Howard. Throwing for 235 yards and 3 touchdowns as well as adding another rushing touchdown. He showed that he is still the leader of this Kansas State team and will be for the foreseeable future.


Going the Wrong way


The Baylor Bears have had a rough season this year and currently sit at 3-7 overall and 2-4 in Big 12 play. Dave Aranda said after this game that this is "rock bottom." After winning the conference in 2021 Baylor finished last year 6-7 and is going the wrong way. Dave Aranda has a lot of work to do in Waco and the rest of this season might be used to look towards 2024.

What is next?


Kansas State travels to Lawrence Kansas to face the Kansas Jayhawks in the Sunflower Showdown.


Baylor travels to Ft. Worth to face TCU.
