Travis Hill’s pivotal play vs. Colorado, 1992

Category: Football
Colorado trailed by 10 late in the first half but had momentum. A long Colorado touchdown drive had just cut Nebraska’s lead to 17-7, and then the Buffaloes got the ball back by forcing a Nebraska punt.

That’s when momentum shifted again, thanks to Nebraska outside linebacker Travis Hill. With less than 2 minutes left in the half, he stripped the ball from Colorado quarterback Koy Detmer and recovered it for the Huskers. It led to a Nebraska touchdown with one second left in the half, giving the Huskers a 24-7 lead. The rout was on, and Nebraska won the Halloween showdown 52-7. | Game page
