The fans tore down the goal posts as the Buffaloes defeated Nebraska for the first time since 1967, a streak of 18 games, and the first win in Boulder against them since 1960. "This is a moment in our program we'll always cherish," said Colorado head coach Bill McCartney. "Up to this point I don't think we've beaten a great team. We did today. And I think we have a rivalry now." [2]
