This Date in College Football History

October 28, 1939: Kansas State's homecoming contest against Nebraska becomes the second college football game ever televised, following the Fordham-Waynesburg contest in New York earlier that fall. The Cornhuskers spoil homecoming with a 25-9 triumph in Manhattan, Kan., before a limited Nebraska ETV audience in the surrounding area.
