OUR PREDICTION: Baylor hung with Oklahoma as a four-touchdown underdog last week but that was at home. Kansas State had an off week to stew about its loss to Vanderbilt and Bill Snyder's team should be well prepared for the high-scoring Bears this afternoon.  Plus, Jesse Ertz should give Baylor fits. He leads the Wildcats with 237 rushing yards and a pair of touchdowns, and has also thrown for 587 yards with four touchdowns. Kansas State is 20-9 coming off a bye under Snyder and I like the Wildcats to cover today.
