The 1939 Nebraska vs. Kansas State football game was a college football game between the [[{{{school}}}|Kansas State Wildcats]] and Nebraska Cornhuskers played on October 28, 1939. This was the first college football homecoming game ever televised.[2]

Kansas State scored first with a field goal, but two minutes later Nebraska took the lead.[3] Nebraska won the game 25–9.[4]

Although Nebraska entered the game a 12–5 favorite,[5] the game itself was considered to a good test for Nebraska, who was undefeated at the time. The matchup was considered to be important to the outcome of the Big Six Conference championship.[6] Nebraska ended the game as one of ten college teams in the nation that were unbeaten up to that point.[7]
