LAWRENCE, Kansas (Ticker) -- Kansas surrendered a safety on its first play from scrimmage. Then it only got worse.
Quarterback Ell Roberson ran for three touchdowns and passed for another as 14th-ranked Kansas State built a 43-point lead at halftime and coasted to a 64-0 victory over Kansas in the 100th meeting between the Big 12 Conference schools.
Kansas State (7-2, 3-2 Big 12 North) moved the ball at will in the annual meeting for the Governor's Cup, defeating the Jayhawks a 10th straight time in the most lopsided game in the history of the series.
"We were outplayed in every single aspect by Kansas State," Kansas coach Mark Mangino said. "Offense, defense, kicking. We were totally outplayed. You have to give credit to Kansas State. They are a good football team and they just outplayed us."
Darren Sproles rushed for over 100 yards for the fifth straight game, carrying 15 times for 110 yards and two scores for the Wildcats, who held a 494-115 edge in total yards.
"It was really important to put them away quickly," Sproles said.
About the only time the Wildcats stalled in the first half was on the first possession of the game, when Kansas State was forced to punt and the kick by Travis Brown was downed at the Kansas 1.
Clark Green was tackled in the end zone, and Kansas State took control.
Following the free kick, Roberson completed a 40-yard pass to Taco Wallace, setting up a four-yard TD run by Roberson.
"We wanted to come out and put it in the end zone early," Roberson said. "When you have a defense that puts you at the 50-yard line. you have motivation to score. Hats off to the defense today. They played hard."
Sproles scored on an eight-yard run and Roberson tossed a 19-yard TD pass to James Terry, increasing the lead to 23-0.
A four-yard TD run by Roberson increased the lead to 30-0 after one quarter.
Roberson completed 9-of-14 passes for 157 yards and carried 13 times for 60 yards.
Kansas State coach Bill Snyder said his team looked a lot better than it did in a 44-10 win over Baylor last week.
"We could have come out and laid an egg and lolly-gagged like we did down at Baylor, but our youngsters chose not to, and I was extremely proud of them because of that," Snyder said.
Joe Rheem kicked field goals of 37 and 28 yards and Roberson scored on a one-yard run, extending the halftime cushion to 43-0. The loss continued a dismal first season for Kansas coach Mangino, an assistant at Kansas State under coach Bill Snyder from 1991 to 1998.
The Jayhawks suffered their most lopsided loss since a 65-0 setback to Oklahoma in 1954.
The only wins for Kansas (2-8, 0-6 Big 12 South) this season have come against Tulsa and Division I-AA Southwest Missouri State.
The Wildcats added to their lead with touchdown runs of 26 yards by Sproles, two yards by Ayo Saba and four yards by Marc Dunn.
Kansas State posted its second shutout the season after blanking Louisiana-Monroe, 68-0, on September 7.
Kansas quarterback Brian Luke, playing in place of the injured Bill Whittemore, completed just 7-of-18 passes for 74 yards.
