Official recap
With some 12,000 Nebraska migrants on hand, the Nebraska Cornhuskers spotted the fiery Colorado Buffaloes a first-quarter field goal, then roared back for a 21-3 Big 8 decision.

It was win No. 6 of the year and No. 13 in succession and gave the Big Red a 3-0 bulge in the loop race. Kent McCloughan again proved his efficiency as a snagger of deflected passes, grabbing a Bob Churchich aerial that was tipped by a Buff defender and sprinting to a 53-yard TD to put NU ahead to stay in the second period.

A Buff fumble at the CU 9 set up NU's third-quarter tally and the Huskers marched 80-yards in the fourth quarter for the clincher. Meanwhile Nebraska's awesome defense held Colorado to minus-3 yards rushing and 54 yards passing.
