MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) -- Josh Freeman threw for 272 yards and a touchdown and ran for a score in Kansas State's 34-14 victory over San Jose State on Saturday night.
James Johnson ran for 111 yards and one TD for Kansas State (1-1), which won its 18th straight home opener and avoided its first 0-2 start since losing its first three games in 1989.
Deon Murphy caught Freeman's touchdown pass and ran 21 yards on a reverse for a 34-7 lead for the Wildcats, who had 153 yards rushing Saturday night after being held to 27 in last week's 23-13 loss at Auburn.
San Jose State, 9-4 last season, dropped to 0-2 and lost quarterback Adam Tafralis to a shoulder injury in the third quarter -- a week after returning 1,000-yard rusher Yonus Davis injured his ankle on the first play of a 45-3 loss at Arizona State.
Before his 15-yard scoring pass to Murphy late in the first period put the Wildcats up 10-0, Freeman had gone 13 straight quarters without a TD throw since passing for three touchdowns in a 45-42 upset of Texas on Nov. 11, 2006.
