K-State used a pair of quick-strike drives to maintain the lead. Howard found the end zone from 24 yards out following a 49-yard pass play to Briley Moore. Vaughn added a 38-yard rushing score for the Cats.
Leading by two, K-State went three and out to give the ball back to Baylor with 2:32 remaining in the game. The Bears marched 57 yards in 10 plays to set John Mayers up for the game-winning field goal as time expired.
Baylor finished with 420 yards of offense on the evening. K-State managed 344 yards. Howard finished 9-of-18 through the air for 88 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions. Defensively, K-State finished with seven sacks.
