Rex Burkhead and Roy Helu Jr. ran for touchdowns and Nebraska's defense held Kansas to 87 total yards in a 20-3 win Saturday night in Lincoln.
NU quarterback Taylor Martinez was limited by design after missing all but one play of last week's game at Iowa State with a right ankle sprain. He clearly wasn't at his best, but he showed glimpses of his dynamic running ability, gaining 71 yards on 11 carries.
Martinez was 14-of-26 passing for 167 yards with one interception. Helu had 85 yards and Burkhead 77 yards.
The Jayhawks, who gained 453 yards and rallied from a 28-point fourth-quarter deficit to beat Colorado last week, generated five first downs and had nine drives that lasted four plays or less.
Nebraska (9-1) led 17-0 at halftime after Burkhead scored from four yards and Helu from 20. Kansas' only points came on Jacob Branstetter's 42-yard field goal after Martinez fumbled.
The Jayhawks fell to 3-7 on the year.
