Official recap
Nebraska struck early, gallantly fought off a Colorado upset bid and socked home two late touchdowns to whip the Buffaloes, 29-13.

A record crowd of 50,881 and a near-nationwide ABC-TV audience saw the highly ranked and favored Huskers pop the rugged Buffs. Nebraska grabbed a 12-0 first-quarter lead on two long Van Brownson-to-Guy Ingles TD pases but had to settle for a 12-7 halftime margin. Paul Rogers' 46 yard field goal made it 15-7 in the third quarter.

Then Colorado ripped back to pull up 15-13 but missed a two-pointer that would have tied the score with 11:22 left in the game. But it was all Nebraska from then on, as Jeff Kinney returned the ensuing kickoff 79 yards to set up a touchdown, and Larry Jacobson recovered a Cliff Branch fumble at the CU 40 to set up another.

H'MAX NOTES: Ingles' TD catches capped drives of 68 and 79 yards. ... Kinney credited Dan Schneiss with providing a key block on his pivotal kickoff return. ... Colorado surprised Nebraska by using speedy receiver Cliff Branch as a wingback. Branch averaged more than 10 yards per carry. ... Colorado marched 93 yards for its first touchdown, with Branch and Jon Keyworth doing most of the damage on the ground. ... Joe Blahak's tackle of Branch at the goal line prevented the Buffs from tying the game 15-15 on CU's two-point try early in the fourth quarter. ... Will Grimsley of the Associated Press had predicted a 27-20 CU upset victory. ... The crowd included an estimated 15,000 Husker fans.
