AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- Kansas State did it to Texas again, this time with spectacular special teams.
Two kick returns for touchdowns and an interception return for another score propelled the Wildcats to a 41-21 win Saturday over the No. 7 Longhorns, handing Texas its worst home defeat in 10 years under coach Mack Brown.
Linebacker Ian Campbell scored on a 41-yard interception return in the second quarter and James Johnson took a kickoff 85-yards for a 21-14 lead moments after Texas had tied the score.
Jordy Nelson's 89-yard punt return in the third put the Wildcats up 34-21 and all but sealed the their second consecutive victory over Texas.
Kansas State (3-1, 1-0) scored on its opening drive then didn't need another offensive touchdown until the fourth quarter to put up the most points scored against Texas (4-1, 0-1) in Austin since 1997, the Longhorns' infamous "Rout 66" loss to UCLA, 66-3.
The loss to UCLA came under former coach John Mackovic. Until Saturday, Brown's worst home loss was a 35-17 defeat by Kansas State in 1999. It was also Texas' first loss in a Big 12 opener since 1998, which also came against the Wildcats.
Defensively, K-State harassed Texas' Colt McCoy into his worst game with a fierce pass rush and four interceptions. McCoy was 19-of-39 for 200 yards and one touchdown.
Kansas State beat Texas 45-42 last season and knocked McCoy out of the game with a neck injury on the first drive. The Wildcats punished him again with blitzes that leveled the Longhorns quarterback several times.
