(AP) - I-back Mike Rozier and the top-ranked Nebraska Cornhuskers did It all Saturday demolishing Kansai 67-13 to lock up at least share of the Big Eight title and set themselves up for a third straight trip to the Orange Bowl. Rozier scored four consecutive first-half touchdowns, the fourth time this season he has scored four TDs In a game. He ran for 2S5 yards and rolled up some more records as Nebraska rolled over the Jayhawks in a per-formance that set an NCAA team scoring record for one season. Although bowl invitations can't officially be extended for days, Nebraska Coach Tom Osborne didn't hesitate to state the obvious. "It appears as though the Orange Bowl has got things set up to where we are in right now," said Osborne. He referred to the bowl committee's decision to Invite the team with the best overall record to Miami, apparently assuring a Nebraska appearance. Osborne said the win over Kansas was "probably our best overall game of the year." , Kansas Coach Mike Gottfried said the Jayhawks' game plan was hurt when receiver Bobby Johnson was Injured. .. "We wanted to go some to a four-receiver offense but that took it out of us." ' Johnson set a Big Eight mark for receiving yards In a season. His two catches for 22 yards gave him 979, surpassing the 980 collected by Oklahoma's Eddie Hinton In 1978. It was the final home appearance for 19 Nebraska seniors, including quarterback Turner Gill, who never quarter-backed a losing effort in Memorial Stadium. ;: The 11-0 Cornhuskers wasted no time in setting the pace as Rozier scored on runs of 49 and 11 yards In the first period. , He tallied on runs of 3 and 17 yards in the second period. He tallied on runs of 3 and 17 yards in the second period. Rozier's effort gave him 28 touchdowns, breaking the NCAA season record of 26 set by Lydell Mitchell at Perm State in 1971.

His single game record topped the school record of 255 yards gained by Rick Berns against Missouri in 1978. ; Nebraska set an NCAA team scoring record for the season. The Huskers 596 points for the season eclipsed the 560 scored in 1980 in 12 games by Brigham Young. , Nebraska rolled to 62 season scores by the run, a mark that assures the t . , i ilv- --:,:;:';'..-- --: '"v .v. .

Smith scored on a 63-yard punt return In the third stanza. : Kansas quarterback Frank Seurer hit Richard Estell with a 62-yard scoring pass for the 3-6-1 Jayhawks' first touchdown.

Rozier has played only three years at Nebraska.

The Sooners built a 34-7 halftime lead and led 41-14 after three quarters, but surrendered two . fourth-quarter touchdowns and barely avoided allowing a third that would have pulled the Buffaloes within striking distance.

But McLemore was stopped by Oklahoma linebacker Thomas Benson at the Sooners' 1-yard line on fourth down, killing the drive. Johnson played most of the day since Spencer Tillman, the Sooners' leading rusher until Saturday, was sidelined with a sprained neck. Derek Marshall, the sophomore quarterback who led the Buffs to a 34-23 victory over Kansas a week ago, left the game with a rib injury in the first quarter and did not return.
