Kansas St. Wins at Nebraska

From Associated Press

In his 15 years at Kansas State, Bill Snyder has turned one of the nation's worst programs into one of the best.

But he still couldn't win at Nebraska. That changed Saturday.

Kansas State not only won in Lincoln for the first time since 1968 with its 38-9 victory, but also handed the No. 18 Cornhuskers their worst home loss since 1958.

Ell Roberson passed for 313 yards and the two touchdowns that broke open the game in the fourth quarter.

"This stirs up the rivalry again," Roberson said. "It's going to continue way after we're all gone. It's a fact that K-State's gotten way better, so now we can go to Nebraska and play."

The victory clinched a share of the Big 12 North title and gave the Wildcats the inside track to a meeting with Oklahoma in the Dec. 6 conference title game.

Kansas State, 9-3 overall and 5-2 in the Big 12, is the sixth team to beat the Huskers (8-3, 4-3) in the last 107 games in Lincoln.
