Henery and Suh finish off Buffs

On a strange Senior Day inside Memorial Stadium, a sophomore and a junior stole the show for the Huskers in a thrilling 40-31 come-from-behind win over Colorado.

The Huskers trailed 31-27 entering the final quarter before rallying for their third straight victory. Sophomore Alex Henery cut the lead to 31-30 with a 37-yard field goal, before Nebraska drove downfield late looking to escape with a victory. Henery came back out and put NU in front for good by booting a 57-yard field goal with just 1:43 remaining, the longest field goal in Nebraska and Memorial Stadium history.

Junior Ndamukong Suh made sure Henery's field goal would hold up when he intercepted a tipped pass and returned it 30 yards for a touchdown.
