Great Games in K-State Football History - Number 10 - K-State 29 Nebraska 28, November, 2000

This game was pretty important in the upward trajectory of K-State football.  K-State beat Nebraska for the first time in 30 years 199, but inn 1999 Nebraska beat the Wildcats 41-15 in Lincoln and everyone was wondering if the 1998 victory was an anomaly and if Nebraska was still going to be the dominant football program in the Big 12 North.

Nebraska was ranked number four in the country going into the game and K-State was ranked number 16.  The game went back and forth and will be remembered for the snowfall that started with just a couple minutes left in the game that covered the field in snow.

I found a recording of the entire game on YouTube:

And a shorter highlight video here:

There was lots of drama in this one as Jonathan Beasley threw a touchdown pass to Quincy Morgan with 2:52 left in the game for the winning score and the defense held Nebraska on downs on their ensuing drive to seal the win.

This one also put K-State into their second Big 12 Championship game against Oklahoma.  Although they lost that game, it marked two out of three years that K-State made the title game and showed that K-State was going to consistently remain a contender for the conference title.
