Senior running back Terrance Ganaway and junior running back Jarred Salubi each fumbled in Iowa State territory to end potential scoring drives for the Bears.
Iowa State started things off with a 43-yard flea flicker pass from junior quarterback Steele Jantz to senior receiver Darius Reynolds. The Cyclones would score on a 10-yard pass from Jantz to Reynolds.
Baylor could not respond until the second quarter, but it finally did with a 10-play, 87-yard drive capped off by junior quarterback Robert Griffin III running in the 1-yard touchdown.
Iowa State came back on its next drive with a 1-yard touchdown pass to re-take the lead before Baylor tied things up again with a 15-yard pass from Griffin to senior receiver Kendall Wright.
The touchdown was Wright’s 8th of the season, which ties him for the second most receiving touchdowns for a single season in Baylor history. He is also the first Baylor receiver to have 3,000 yards in a career.
Baylor took the lead with a 7-play, 58-yard drive capped off with by a 1-yard touchdown run from sophomore running back Glasco Martin.
