Huskers bounce back in Boulder

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.

Neil Smith, the Big Eight defensive player of the week, anchored the Husker defense as he tallied 12 tackles, nine solo, with two tackles for 15 yards loss. He had one fumble recovery and a crucial blocked field goal.
