What is the deal with rpmfusion nvidia updates?

I don't understand why yum doesn't want to install updates when a new kernel is 

 sudo yum update
---> Package kernel.x86_64 0:3.16.7-200.fc20 will be installed
[nothing about kmod-nvidia-blah]

** yum wants to update kernel **

rpm -qa kmod-nvidia*

** kmod-nvidia 3.16.6-203 is already installed **

yum info kmod-nvidia*
Name        : kmod-nvidia-304xx-3.16.7-200.fc20.x86_64
Arch        : x86_64
Version     : 304.123
Release     : 1.fc20.17

** OK, there it is!  The kmod I need for the new kernel.  So why doesn't yum 
want to install it?
