LAWRENCE, Kan. — There'll be no one-point wins for Nebraska as the No. 1 team. At least not against Kansas.
Scott Frost rushed for 121 yards and two touchdowns and the top-ranked Cornhuskers, overcoming a brief power failure and a cold, driving rain, were dominant in a 35-0 victory over Kansas Saturday night, their 29th consecutive winover the Jayhawks.
It was the first game for Nebraska, 7-0 overall and 4-0 in the Big 12, since supplanting Penn State as the No. 1-ranked team after the Nittany Lions edged unranked Minnesota by a point on Oct. 18.
"Overall, it was a good, solid win," Nebraska Coach Tom Osborne said.
Kansas managed only four first downs and 48 yards, an all-time low, as the Cornhuskers earned their second consecutive shutout.
Rain began drenching the artificial turf in the third quarter, when each team totaled only 32 yards without scoring. In the second quarter, the Cornhuskers led, 21-0, when play was halted after a bank of lights went out in a corner of the stadium.
