College Football SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 2000 TOP 25 ROUNDUP R REN0GAZETTE-J0URNAURGJ.COM 9D Kansas State dims Nebraska's BCS hopes THE ASSOCIATED PRESS MANHATTAN, Kan. It took a mixture of rain, sleet and snow and a great game by a wide receiver, but Kansas State finally beat a Top 10 team. Quincy Morgan caught seven passes for 199 yards and two touchdowns and No. 16 Kansas State survived a late charge and beat No. 4 Nebraska 29-28 on a frightful Saturday night, ending the national title hopes of the Huskers (8-2, 5-2 Big 12). Morgan's 12-yard touchdown catch from Jonathan Beasley put the Wildcats ahead by one point with 2:52 to play and put a record KSU Stadium crowd on the edge of its seats waiting to flood the snow-covered field. With 50 seconds left, Eric Crouch's pass bounced off the hands of Matt Davison on fourth-and-5 and Kansas State went to 2-18 against Top 10 teams in the Bill Snyder era. Snyder, the architect of the amazing turnaround of the once-woeful Kansas State program, went to 2-11 against Nebraska. The victory puts the Wildcats (9-2, 5-2) one win away from the Big 12 North title and a possible rematch in the Big 12 title game with No. 1 Oklahoma, which is one win away from the South title. After Eric Crouch's 1-yard touchdown run with 31 seconds left in the first quarter, a Nebraska offense which had been averaging more than 487 yards per game had four punts, one interception, one fumble and one missed field goal in its next seven possessions. NO. 1 OKLAHOMA 35, NO. 23 TEXAS ASM 31 COLLEGE STATION, Texas Torrance Marshall kept Oklahoma's national championship drive alive when he scored on a 41 -yard interception return in the fourth quarter to rally the No. 1 Sooners to a victory over No. 23 Texas A&M. ' Marshall's first career interception came with 7:18 left in the game, completing a comeback from a 10-point, fourth-quarter deficit that allowed the Sooners (9-0, 6-0 Big 12) to remain the nation's only major team with a perfect record. Josh Heupel completed 28-of-42 passes for 263 yards. Top 25 Summaries With Texas A&M ahead 31-21, Heupel just 2-for-8 on third-down conversions at the time made three straight third-down plays leading to a 2-yard TO run by Quentin Griffin with 7:43 left.
