No. 23 Kansas State’s performance in short-yardage, late-downs situations may be the key Saturday in the Wildcats’ game at Baylor.

“If you think we go for it a few times on fourth down…” head coach Chris Klieman said. “It’s going to be a game of possessions because (Baylor) is going to hang on to the football, and if it is third-and-7, they’re going to try to get it to fourth-and-short to go for it again to try to keep the football away from people.”
