Recap

Huskers prevail in shootout with Wildcats

It was a wild game from start to finish as NU’s 192nd consecutive sellout crowd saw over 1,000 yards of total offense. Nebraska was outyarded, 565 to 545, and gave up a Big Eight record 489 yards passing to KSU quarterback Chad May, but picked off two passes and recovered one fumble and converted all three KSU turnovers into scores.

K-State tied the score twice in the first half, answering NU’s two touchdowns with two of its own, but Nebraska scored two more and Byron Bennett added a 48-yard field goal to give the Huskers a 31-14 halftime lead.

The Wildcats were the only team to score in the third quarter and added another with 7:44 remaining in the fourth to close the gap to 31-28, but Nebraska scored twice more in the last six minutes for the 45-28 final.

I-back Calvin Jones posted his second consecutive 100-yard rushing day with 138 on 29 carries and two scores, while quarterback Tommie Frazier rushed for 158 yards. Frazier finished with 312 total offense yards, just seven shy of the school record.

Wingback Abdul Muhammad was Frazier’s favorite target, with six catches for 91 yards.

Outside linebacker Trev Alberts continued his streak of sacks in every game and set the NU career record with 24½. Ed Stewart tallied 11 tackles, while John Reece and Ernie Beler each had 10. Beler and Tyrone Williams each picked off a pass.

The victory extended the Huskers’ NCAA record for consecutive winning seasons to an unprecedented 32. Kansas State finished 8-2-1, ranked in the top 20 and went on to win its second bowl game in school history.
