Mike Rozier

Official recap

Sparked by sophomore I-back Mike Rozier's 93-yard touchdown run, the Huskers rolled to their second-straight Big Eight win—a 49-3 romp at Kansas State which saw the Big Red pile up 674 yards' total offense, while holding the Wildcats to 136. The performance gave Nebraska two-game figures of 1,393 yards on offense and 282 yards on defense.

Rozier finished the day with 153 yards on just nine carries, while quarterback Turner Gill had another outstanding day, completing 10 of 14 passes for two touchdowns, and rushing 14 times for 72 yards.

Steve Willis' 33-yard third-quarter field goal provided Kansas State's only points as the Husker defense did not give up a touchdown for a third-straight game.
