The Buffs slaughtered Nebraska this past weekend in a 34-31 overtime comeback victory.

First year head coach Mel Tucker said he wasn’t afraid his team wouldn’t win, even when they were behind by more than 17 points. “These are long games now. There’s no need to get nervous, you just want to play the next play.”

The team has been hard at work since the summer, and Tucker expected Nebraska to have a difficult second half due to the high altitude at Folsom Field.

Wide receiver K.D. Nixon said, “I don’t think nobody outside this football team could play with the Colorado Buffaloes. I guarantee you anybody on another college football team would quit because how hard it was. We all sticked together and that showed in the 4th quarter. We didn’t win today, we won back in summer workouts, back when coach Tucker came in December 4th. That’s what some people don’t understand.”

The Buff’s next game is against in-state rival Air Force Academy.
