KU falls to Baylor, K-State beats Tech in OT
The Kansas Jayhawks were feeling a little better about themselves after competing against rival Kansas State on Oct. 28, losing 30-20. But this past Saturday showed that these two programs are not within 10 points of each other.  

With freshman Charlie Brewer making his first start, the Baylor Bears were sharp on offense and downright dominant on defense in beating the Jayhawks on Saturday, 38-9. It was Baylor’s first win of the season.  

Brewer threw for 315 yards and three touchdowns. Denzel Mims had five catches for 122 yards. And the Bears piled up 455 yards total offense while holding Kansas to just 289 yards.  

The announced crowd for a matchup between two of the worst teams in major college football was 21,797, but there were perhaps half that many fans in the stands. There were even fewer in the second half, when the Bears kept tacking on points to put the game away.  

Carter Stanley, back in the starting lineup for Kansas, finished 17 of 33 for 155 yards with a pick before he was benched in favor of former starter Peyton Bender in the fourth quarter.  

It was the third time in four games that Kansas didn't score a touchdown.  

``They kept battling to the very end,'' Jayhawks coach David Beaty said. ``Those guys kept fighting.''  

Almost literally.  

The Jayhawks' frustration peaked when offensive coordinator Doug Meacham, irked by the officials slowing down the game to give Baylor time to substitute personnel, had to be restrained from going after the referee by Beaty and other members of the coaching staff.  

In Lubbock, Texas, freshman quarterback Skylar Thompson threw an 8-yard touchdown pass to Byron Pringle in overtime and Kansas State defeated Texas Tech 42-35.  

After the Wildcats’ OT score, Red Raiders QB Nic Shimonek threw out of the end zone on fourth-and-4.  

The Wildcats trailed in the final minute of regulation. But Dalton Schoen caught a two-point conversion pass from Thompson with 42 seconds to play following Thompson’s successful dive on second-and-goal from the 1. Kansas State had trailed for the previous 19:18 after blowing a 24-21 advantage.  

Thompson, a redshirt freshman who replaced Alex Delton after a helmet-to-helmet hit late in the first half, played the final 30 minutes and finished 5 of 8 for 96 yards passing and the touchdown. Delton started the prior three games for Jesse Ertz, who is sidelined with a knee injury.  

K-State could have had three touchdowns called back.  

D.J. Reed’s punt return of more than 80 yards for a touchdown was initially negated by a holding call and, subsequently, Colby Moore’s targeting infraction on the play after video review.  

Delton’s 14-yard throw to Winston Dimel was called back, but Delton connected with Pringle the next snap for a short-lived 17-7 lead.  

Down 28-24 late in the third quarter, Thompson later threw a 37-yard touchdown pass to Isaiah Zuber that was whistled back after Zuber drifted out of bounds before coming back in for the catch. Kansas State punted the next play.
