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 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 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 Dante 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.
