The best individual games of 2012: No. 8

By David Ubben

We're counting down the 10 best individual games of any Big 12 player in 2012. Bowl games and nonconference play counts, but these are the performances that topped them all at the end of the season.

No. 8: Baylor RB Lache Seastrunk vs. No. 1 Kansas State

Date: Nov. 17, 2012

Why it's on the list: There was a rumbling from Seastrunk heading into this game, but K-State was a heavy favorite with one of the Big 12's best defenses. Seastrunk was a footnote when it came to storyline's entering the game. By the end of the night, amongst a delirious fan base that had stormed the field at Floyd Casey Stadium, Seastrunk was the story of the game. His second career 100-yard rushing game began a streak of four to close the season, and he arose to finish the year as one of the Big 12's best running backs. Seastrunk's 185-yard night was his career high, highlighted by an 80-yard sprint up the middle of K-State's defense that broke the Wildcats' will and any shot they had of keeping their national title hopes alive. The late third-quarter run ended any doubt that Baylor would be knocking off a No. 1 team for the first time in school history and made it clear that Seastrunk would be a serious player in Baylor's offense for the rest of the season and beyond. A flash in the pan? Nope. Maybe the Big 12's best home-run hitter outside of Tavon Austin at West Virginia.
