Updated 9/16/2000

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - Jonathan Beasley threw two long touchdown passes to Quincy Morgan and ran for another score in the first quarter as No. 7 Kansas State broke a 90-year-old record with a 76-0 victory over Ball State on Sept. 16.

Kansas State's previous record was set in 1910 in a 75-0 victory over Drury. It fell with 11:21 remaining, on Rashad Washington's 1-yard run and Kyle Altvater's conversion.

The Wildcats' 11 touchdowns also set a record.

Morgan caught a third touchdown pass from Beasley's backup, freshman Ell Roberson, tying a school record for TD catches in a game. Josh Scobey and Roderick Cartwright added two touchdown runs each as the Wildcats extended Ball State's losing streak to 20 games, longest in the nation.

The Wildcats (3-0) led 34-0 after one quarter, scoring five touchdowns before Ball State (0-3) managed a first down. Kansas State's defense, led by tackle Mario Fatafehi's three sacks, had more interceptions (two) than Ball State had completions (one, for 5 yards.)
