Kansas played Nebraska's game of ball control and used up 10:08 in the third quarter and scored with 1:10 remaining to tie the game at 14-14.
After an exchange of possessions, the Huskers marched the ball down the field and Calvin Jones broke loose for a 51-yard run to set up the play of the day for NU — a 10-yard TD strike from Frazier under pressure, to tight end Trumane Bell, who pushed his way into the end zone in double coverage.
But KU answered with a 17-play, 80-yard drive, only to miss under pressure on a 2-point conversion pass, which preserved the Huskers' ninth straight victory and second straight road win.
Jones tallied 195 yards, including 96 in the fourth quarter, despite fighting a virus all week. He proved to be the difference in the game as NU totaled 368 total yards, 297 rushing, to Kansas' 297, 179 on the ground.
Linebacker Mike Anderson led the Husker Blackshirts with 12 tackles, while Trev Alberts had 11. Alberts' streak of 10 games with at least one sack came to an end, but he did have a tackle for a loss and threehurries.
The victory extended Nebraska's NCAA record of consecutive nine-win seasons to 25.
