WACO, Texas -- Baylor fans have grown accustomed to seeing offensive explosions in recent years, especially since moving into McLane Stadium in 2014.If the Bears last two home games are any indication, they might have to get used to watching them come from opponents.Kansas State freshman Alex Barnes rushed for 120 of his 129 yards and all four of his touchdowns in the second half to pace the Wildcats to 35 points during that span and a 42-21 win Saturday.I just liked that he did what he always does, and thats run extremely hard, Kansas State coach Bill Snyder said. He makes a few miss on his way sometimes, not always, but hes a gifted, powerful-type runner, which we have always known.It was the first win for the Wildcats (6-4, 4-3 Big 12) in Waco since 2002 and made them bowl eligible for the seventh straight season. Baylors 6-0 start seems a distant memory after its fourth consecutive defeat and its second in a row at home after a 62-22 drubbing from TCU two weeks ago.Barnes had only one carry in the first half, but it was his show after that, especially in the third quarter. Thats when scored three of his four touchdowns, and Kansas State held the ball for 11:37 and outgained Baylor 186-38.I knew that we, as a unit would have a big day on the ground, Barnes said. I didnt realize that it would be me specifically, but I knew we were going to get it done.Neither team got much done in the first half, but the Bears (6-4, 4-3) took a 14-7 lead into halftime thanks to cashing in a muffed punt and fumble that set them up at the Kansas State 25 and 40, respectively. But Baylor struggled to find offensive consistency all day, and Donnie Starks pulled in two of Zach Smiths three interceptions in the second half of his first career start.You always have to finish, Kansas State coach Bill Snyder said. Sometimes we have, sometimes we havent. You take two ballgames that have gone down to the wire, that shouldnt have, that go down to the last snap of the ballgame. You have a chance to win, cant finish it off. So (it was nice) to be able to do that.Jesse Ertz threw for 177 yards and ran for 46 more, including a 40-yarder on a fourth-down run in the second quarter that set up Kansas States first score.Smith threw for 258 yards and three touchdowns in his first career start, and Shock Linwood, Baylors all-time leading rusher, added 110 yards on 24 carries.We just didnt go out there and execute like we had to, Smith said. Kansas State came out and executed, and they played great football. We, offense or defense, didnt execute coming out for the second half. When you dont do that, you lose.THE TAKEAWAYKansas State: The Wildcats continued their success on the ground, eclipsing the 200-yard mark for the fourth straight game with 237 on 51 attempts.Baylor: The downward spiral continues for the Bears, who were held below 30 points for the third straight game. Baylor also failed to score a rushing touchdown for the first time in 39 games, snapping the longest active streak among Power Five conference teams.KEY NUMBERSKansas State: It was an uncharacteristically undisciplined first half with 80 yards in penalties and two turnovers, both of which resulted in Baylor touchdowns. The Wildcats cleaned the up in the second half with 5 penalty yards and no turnovers.Baylor: This was the fourth time Baylor was held scoreless in the first quarter this season. That happened to the Bears three times in the previous four seasons combined.UP NEXTKansas State returns home for a rivalry game with Kansas next Saturday. A Wildcat win would give Bill Snyder 200 for his career, making him the 26th coach in FBS history to reach that plateau.Baylor has no time to lick the wounds from its latest loss with a short week looming before a Friday tilt with Texas Tech at AT&T Stadium in Arlington.

. The All-Pro lineman got the leg bent under him while trying to make a tackle during the first half of a 22-20 overtime loss at Miami on Thursday night. The medical staff initially thought hed torn the ligament, and the test a day later in Cincinnati confirmed it. Corey Andersons standard refrain for every question thrown at him is, Its one of those things. Long injury-enforced lay-off? Its one of those things. Playing as a specialist batsman? Its one of those things. It may seem he is playing down an injury that has kept him out of competitive cricket for more than six months, but Anderson is aware he needs to ease himself into the grind ahead of a packed calendar where New Zealand are scheduled to play 24 matches from now until March next year.The New Zealand allrounder has been unlucky with injuries since he suffered a fractured finger during the IPL last year. That was followed by a stress-related back injury that first cut his England tour short in June last year. The injury recurred at the end of the World T20 in India, and ruled him out of tours to Zimbabwe and South Africa. He admitted coping with the recurrence of the injury was reasonably tough, but the break was necessary.Its one of those things... you have a decent chunk out [with injury] and you dont really want to sit out again. But I had to do it. Its part of the game, you have injuries, he said. Doing that gives you time to reflect on things and see where you can get better. Ive been basically working to get my fitness and strength up and not have a date in mind. Its just exciting to be back with the group and back in India.New Zealands team management has tried to ensure there were no half measures during the course of Andersons recovery. We started right back from the base level and we just built him up there slow, Chris Donaldson, the teams strength and conditioning coach, told ESPNcricinfo. We have taken time with him. This started four-five months ago and he has worked incredibly hard. He has worked in conjunction with the high performance group [staff]] .ddddddddddddThere has been overall work in progress and building him. He has really been brilliant to come back to this level.While workload-management is the thinking behind New Zealand playing him as a pure batsman in the ODIs against India, Anderson had a bowl during the teams net at the HPCA Stadium in Dharamsala and even appeared to operate at full tilt towards the end of the session. Anderson, however, made it clear he was in no hurry to resume bowling. I am slowly working on my bowling in the background. I think thats one of those things that… no, there is no timeframe, he said. [It is] very similar to what the injury was in the first place. [It is about] just letting it take its time and when its ready, its ready. It is pointless pushing myself with such a big summer in front of us.I know its India, Id love to be doing everything. I dont know if there is enough time on this tour potentially, but its just one of those things that I am focusing on my batting. That will be my main job.Anderson is expected to slot into the middle order with Luke Ronchi and James Neesham for company. Their job description, according to him, involved shifting seamlessly between consolidation and attack. In the middle order you have got to be able to adapt. If you lose early wickets, you are going to be able to try and take your team deep, Anderson said. If you get in with not many overs left, then you are going to have to start going from ball one. Its an adaptable position and I have obviously been preparing for that.We have got a lot of guys in the team who can do a lot of things, which is great - some of the guys in the top order can also bowl.
