Ty Zimmerman was healthy enough to make the trip to Baylor for the game Saturday, but was too injured to play. The junior safety wore a boot on his left foot and used crutches as he watched from the sidelines. Zimmerman, who led K-State’s secondary with five interceptions in K-State’s first 10 games, was injured late against TCU. Receiver Curry Sexton was also injured against the Horned Frogs and didn’t play on Saturday. He was last seen with his arm in a sling and did not make the trip.
• Special guests in attendance included two Orange Bowl representatives and Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby.
