Florence completed 26-of-42 pass attempts for 367 yards for Baylor (4-4, 1-4 Big 12) which ended a four game losing streak en route to its first conference victory this season. Glasco Martin (157) and Lache Seastrunk (103) each racked up over 100 yards on the ground.

Michael Cummings managed only 81 yards passing by completing 9-of-19 pass attempts while being intercepted twice for Kansas (1-8, 0-6). James Sims rushed for 126 yards and a touchdown on 21 attempts. Kansas has now lost 19 straight games against FBS opponents.
