Recap

Huskers crush eighth-ranked Buffaloes

For the first time in history, two teams tied for the same AP rank met on the gridiron. Two No. 8’s, Nebraska and Colorado met in front of a nationally televised audience for a Halloween Homecoming match.

The results were almost spooky as Nebraska totally dominated the Buffaloes on a cold rainy day, did not have a turnover, rushed for 373 yards and piled up 428 total yards to Colorado’s 144 in a 52-7 win for the Huskers.

Colorado was ranked in the top 20 for all defensive categories, yet NU dominated the game and held the ball nearly 43 minutes. The win halted CU’s 25-game unbeaten conference streak and ended NU’s eight-game winless streak vs. Top 20 teams.

NU’s freshman QB, Tommie Frazier, rushed for 86 yards and completed two touchdown passes. Calvin Jones was the game’s leading rusher with 101 yards and three scores, while Derek Brown added 80 yards. Colorado was held to just eight yards rushing.

Defensively, NU’s John Parrella was the Big Eight Player of the Week as he had eight tackles and three sacks. Travis Hill, meanwhile, was the Sporting News Player of the Week as he had an interception on CU’s first drive, put heavy pressure on the Buff QB all game long, and had a crucial nine-yard sack in which he caused and recovered a fumble in the second quarter.

H’MAX NOTES: A 16-yard carry by Nebraska guard Will Shields on a fumbleroosky play set up Jones’ touchdown just before halftime. … The Huskers ran 92 plays on offense and held the ball for nearly 43 minutes.
