Rozier, Huskers run over Kansas
Playing his final home game, Mike Rozier ripped Kansas for a school-record 285 yards and four touchdowns as the Huskers romped to a 67-13 win over Kansas.
The effort earned Rozier a record-tying fourth Big Eight offensive player-of-the-week award in 1983, upped his season rushing touchdown total to 28 to break the NCAA record of 26 set by Penn State’s Lydell Mitchell in 1971, set Nebraska and Big Eight single-season rushing yards records with 1,943, and broke Johnny Rodgers’ 1972 Nebraska season all-purpose yards record of 2,011 with 2,219.
At halftime, Rozier had 230 yards and all of his TDs (he had the fourth TD 5:33 into the second quarter) as the Huskers had surged to a 41-0 lead in a regionally televised game.
