LINCOLN, Nebraska (Ticker) -- Nebraska has had several winning streaks snapped this season. But it had little trouble extending a couple against Kansas.
David Horne rushed for 122 yards and a touchdown and Dahrran Diedrick added 107 and a score, leading Nebraska to its 34th consecutive victory over the Jayhawks, 45-7.
Horne and Diedrick led a rushing offense that totaled 352 yards against a defense that ranks 114th among 117 Division I-A teams. Horne carried just nine times and scored on a 30-yard run in the first quarter to put the Cornhuskers (7-4, 3-3 Big 12) ahead for good.
Diedrick had 12 rushes, including a 53-yard TD that opened the scoring less than four minutes into the game.
A week after its 26-game home winning streak was snapped, Nebraska extended its lead in the series to 85-21-3. The Cornhuskers, who have not lost to Kansas since 1968, also posted their 34th straight homecoming victory.
Jammal Lord ran for 74 yards on 13 carries and completed 4-of-10 passes for 59 yards and two touchdowns. He connected with Wilson Thomas for a 27-yard score in the second quarter and tight end Aaron Golliday for a 12-yard TD on the opening drive of the second half to extend Nebraska's lead to 31-7.
The Huskers also scored on a 30-yard blocked punt return by rover Aaron Terpening and a four-yard run by Josh Davis.
