Script error The Kansas State–Nebraska football rivalry was an American college football rivalry between the Kansas State Wildcats and Nebraska Cornhuskers as members of the same conference. The rivalry dissolved when Nebraska left the Big 12 Conference for the Big Ten Conference.

The rivalry was a border rivalry, and was a long non-interrupted rivalry with 89 straight games from 1922 to 2010. With only 135 miles separating the two schools, Nebraska and Kansas State were the closest cross-border rivals in the Big 8 and Big 12 conferences. The 1939 contest between the two teams was televised in Manhattan, and it was only the second ever televised college football game. The 1992 contest was played in Tokyo, Japan, as the Coca-Cola Classic. The series is unusual for the fact that over the 100 years of this rivalry, there were 28 shut-out victories. Throughout the career of Nebraska coach Tom Osborne, Nebraska was undefeated by Kansas State. The rivalry began to heat up, however, when the Big 12 Conference was established in 1996 and Nebraska and Kansas State were both placed in the North Division, meaning that both schools were regularly in contention for the Big 12 North Division title. The last game between the two schools was played on October 7, 2010. There has been talk of scheduling non-conference games between the two teams to renew the rivalry.[1]
