Official recap

Nebraska scored four second-half touchdowns to rally from a 9-3 deficit and beat a fired-up group of Kansas Jayhawks, 31-15, and despite five field goals by KU's Bruce Kallmeyer, the Huskers kept a fifth-straight opponent out of their end zone.

The Jayhawks, who needed a win to stay alive in the Big Eight race, had much the better of it in the first half, out-yarding the Huskers, 213-112, but KU had to settle for three FGs and just a 9-3 lead at intermission.

Things changed abruptly after halftime, though, as the NU defense forced two Jayhawk turnovers which led to short TD drives and a 17-12 Husker lead after three quarters. Two more scores in the fourth quarter iced the game. I-back Mike Rozier capped all scoring and a career-best 179-yard day with a 49-yard TD run with 1:25 left.
