Huskers crush Wildcats in Big Eight opener

Gdowski, Mickey Joseph and Mike Grant each threw touchdown passes, marking the first time in seven years that three different Huskers had passed for scores in the same game.
Pat Jackson’s 6-yard touchdown run for K-State was the Wildcats’ first touchdown vs. Nebraska in five years.
