Waco, Texas • Glasco Martin ran for three touchdowns, Lache Seastrunk had 185 yards rushing, including an 80-yard score, and Baylor again upset the BCS picture with a late-season victory, beating second-ranked Kansas State 52-24 on Saturday night.

A week after the Wildcats (10-1, 7-1 Big 12) took over the No. 1 spot in the BCS standings following Alabama's loss, another team will get its chance on top. And undefeated Notre Dame could get its championship shot.

K-State quarterback Collin Klein may be a Heisman Trophy front-runner no more after throwing three interceptions while being pressured and harassed all night by Baylor (5-5, 2-5). He threw for 286 yards, but he had only 39 yards on 17 carries.

Nick Florence, the successor to Heisman winner Robert Griffin III, threw both of his touchdowns in the first half when the Bears jumped out to a 28-7 lead.

Baylor upset then fifth-ranked Oklahoma after two teams ahead of the Sooners already had lost that day on the same November weekend last season. —
