MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) -
Robert Griffin III threw his first interception at exactly the wrong time.
Kansas State linebacker Arthur Brown picked off Baylor's star quarterback in the closing minutes Saturday, setting up Anthony Cantele's 31-yard field goal that sent the Wildcats to a stunning 36-35 win over the No. 15 Bears.
Collin Klein threw for 146 yards and two touchdowns and added 113 yards and another score for the Wildcats (4-0), who won their third straight Big 12 opener - this one in dramatic fashion.
Kansas State trailed 35-26 midway through the fourth quarter when Klein engineered a 13-play, 70-yard drive that he capped with a short touchdown plunge.
Still, Baylor (3-1) took over needing only a couple first downs to wrap up its first 4-0 start since 1991. Instead, Griffin missed Brown sliding over across the middle and Kansas State's defensive captain hauled in the throw after a slight, heart-stopping bobble.
It was the first interception thrown by Griffin this season.
Cantele, who missed earlier in the game from 42 yards, hit the go-ahead field goal with 3:10 left in the game, and the nation's sixth-ranked defense preserved the win.
