Colorado entered the game having lost its last nine contests against Nebraska. This time, though, the Buffs bested the Cornhusker's Blackshirts D, racking up 380 rushing yards and 582 total yards. Colorado registered three early scores, and after that the Chris Brown show began. The tailback registered rushing touchdowns of 12, one and 36 yards before the half, then put the game away by scoring three more touchdowns over a 189-second span in the fourth quarter. The 'Huskers didn't have long to sulk, though; Colorado went on to upset Texas in the Big 12 title game, catapulting Nebraska back into the championship mix.
