TOPEKA, Kan. (THE DRIVE) Jesse Ertz ran for two touchdowns and Kansas State withstood a furious second half rally to post a 33-20 win over Baylor Saturday.
Ertz had 12 carries for 95 yards, including a 15-yard run in the 3rd quarter to extend the Kansas State lead to 27-13. The Wildcats tipped the balance of their offense in the second half with just five pass attempts compared to 23 rushes.
Baylor started to come back in the third quarter but thanks to a high snap over the head of Zach Smith, recovered by K-State and an interception by Reed, K-State was able to hold onto their lead and take the win.
For the game, Kansas State (3-1,1-0 Big 12) ran the ball 43 times for 225 yards and two touchdowns.
K-State will take on Texas next week.
