Great Games in K-State Football History - Number 12 - K-State 36 Baylor 35, October 1, 2011

This game still ranks as one of the best games I've seen in person at Bill Snyder Family stadium.  Baylor was ranked number 14 in the nation and was led by Robert Griffin III at quarterback.  In a game that could have gone either way, I believe this victory helped propel the 2011 Wildcats to a 7-2 conference record and a second place finish with a trip to the Cotton Bowl.  It was the first conference game that season and a loss could have meant a totally different trajectory for K-State that year.

In a game featuring a lot of NFL caliber talent on both teams, this one will be remembered by Arthur Brown dominating the 4th quarter.  He had an interception of Griffin with 5:26 left that led to an Anthony Cantele field goal that put K-State ahead by one.  Baylor had one last chance with the ball and on first down Griffin scrambled to his right and I'll never forget as I was watching from the south end zone Arthur Brown came into view like a blur and sacked him.  It's one of the best plays I've ever seen in that stadium.  Baylor turned it over on downs and the victory was sealed for K-State.

I found a couple videos with highlights of the game:

The Arthur Brown sack of Griffin is at the 11:25 mark of the second video.

What are your memories of this game?
