Brewer helps Baylor snap five-game skid
Baylor senior quarterback Charlie Brewer led three scoring drives in the fourth quarter to help Baylor beat Kansas State 32-31 on a buzzer-beating field goal on Saturday at McLane Stadium.
The former Austin Lake Travis star scored four touchdowns helped the Bears snap a five-game losing streak.
Brewer completed 31 of 39 passes for 349 yards with two passing touchdowns and had 82 yards and two scores on 23 carries to help Baylor (2-5, 2-5 Big 12) beat Kansas State (4-5, 4-4).
The Bears overcame a nine-point deficit twice in the fourth quarter.
Brewer scored a one-yard rushing touchdown to cut the Wildcat lead to 31-29 with 4 minutes, 16 seconds remaining.
Baylor got the ball back with less than three minutes left and Brewer moved the ball down the field 57 yards on 10 plays to set up John Mayers’ (Flower Mound Marcus) 30-yard field goal as time expired.
Brewer is part of a long line of star quarterbacks at Lake Travis and led the Cavaliers to a 30-2 record and consecutive state title game appearances. He was the Texas Associated Press Sports Editors Player of the Year in 2016.
