Baylor Defeats Kansas State; 17-3

The Baylor Bears moved to 1-0 in Big 12 play as they defeated the Kansas State Wildcats, 17-3 on Saturday night.

The Baylor Bears (2-3, 1-0) defeated the Kansas State Wildcats (3-2, 0-1) at Floyd Casey Stadium on Saturday night. The Baylor victory marks the first time in the two teams' 6 meeting that the Bears have come out victorious.

The Bears struck early with a 75 yard touchdown pass from Shawn Bell to Trent Shelton. The Bears never trailed, and the Baylor defense took control holding the Wildcats to only 3 points. The Baylor defense shutout the Wildcats in the 2nd half of action, while the Bears' Shawn Bell continued to move the Baylor Bears offense threw the air. Bell found Dominique Zeigler for an 11 yard touchdown in the 3rd quarter.

Baylor safety, Dwain Crawford, snagged two interceptions on the game, and the Baylor secondary stopped nearly everything thrown in their direction. The bigger story may be the fact that the Baylor defensive line held the Kansas State running backs to only 45 yards on the night on 21 carries.

The Baylor Bears take on the Colorado Buffaloes next week in Boulder.
