Blackshirts blank second foe in a row
For the second straight week, the Nebraska defense dominated the opposition, as the Huskers shut out Kansas 35-0 in Lawrence.
Nebraska opened the scoring on a Joel Makovicka five-yard run in the first quarter. Scott Frost scored from 27 yards and Makovicka added an 18-yard score in the second quarter to push the Husker lead to 21-0. After a lull for the offense, Nebraska added two fourth-quarter touchdowns to account for the final 35-0 margin.
KU gained just 48 yards the entire game, an all-time Kansas low and the fewest by a Husker opponent since 1964. The Jayhawks picked up just five first downs.
It was the first time Nebraska had shut out back-to-back opponents since 1979.
