Official recap
Nebraska rebounded in fine fashion from its disappointing loss to Oklahoma and avenged a 1986 loss to Colorado with a 24-7 win over the Buffaloes.

As ESPN commentator Lee Corso said, I-back Keith Jones was "all-universe" on this particular Saturday as he rushed 26 times for two touchdowns and a career-high 248 yards, propelling him into third among all-time Nebraska runners. The Husker defense, meanwhile, limited CU to 226 yards.
