Danny Noonan and Broderick Thomas pursue Colorado quarterback Mark Hatcher.

Stout defense, big plays spur Buffs to upset

Colorado’s defense held Nebraska to 123 rushing yards, the Huskers’ lowest in more than 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.
