Official recap

Nebraska used 105 players, including 17 with rushing attempts and nine who scored, as the Huskers rolled to a Homecoming victory over Kansas State and mathematically clinched their 26th-consecutive winning season, tying the NCAA record. Husker ballcarriers netted 459 rushing yards, led by Tyreese Knox's 100.

Quarterbacks Steve Taylor and Clete Blakeman combined to complete 13 of 17 passes for 203 yards. Although the defense yielded a second-quarter field goal, it kept a third-straight opponent out of the end zone.
