LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- Oklahoma State picked up a conference road win by handing Nebraska its worst home loss in nearly 50 years.

OSU beat the Cornhuskers 45-14 to win for the first time in Lincoln since 1960 and is the worst loss at home since Missouri shut out Nebraska 31-0 in 1958. The loss comes a week after the Cornhuskers lost to Missouri 41-6.

OSU scored on their first six possessions to take a 38-0 halftime lead and improves to 4-3 overall and 2-1 in the Big 12.

Dantrell Savage rushed for 212 yards and a touchdown, Julius Crosslin scored twice, and Zac Robinson ran and passed for touchdowns.

The win is Oklahoma State's second-most lopsided Big 12 win after a 66-24 victory over Baylor last year.

Zac Robinson completed 12 of 19 passes for 234 yards with Adarius Bowman catching six for 100 yards.
