Official recap
Colorado's defense held Nebraska to 123 rushing yards, the Huskers' lowest in over eight years, and the Buffaloes pulled off a stunning, 20-10, upset of the third-ranked Huskers at Boulder.

Nebraska's defense played an overall fine game but was caught flat-footed on a 39-yard touchdown reverse and a 52-yard halfback pass for a touchdown.

It was Colorado's first win over Nebraska since 1967 and the Buffs' first win over the Huskers in Boulder since 1960.
