WACO, Texas — Baylor quarterback Bryce Petty is set to play against Kansas State on Saturday night, one week after suffering a concussion.

School officials said Friday that Petty has been medically cleared for the sixth-ranked Bears when they play the ninth-ranked Wildcats.

The winner is guaranteed at least a share of the Big 12 title, with Baylor the defending champion.

Petty was full participant in practice Thursday, though he was still progressing through the concussion protocol.

After taking a high hit midway through the third quarter in last Saturday’s 48-46 win against Texas Tech, Petty came out of that game with what the team called a “mild concussion.”

Even when he was still having headaches Monday, Petty said then he expected to play in the home finale against the Wildcats.
