What a victory! Behind the play of quarterback Steven Montez, wide receiver Laviska Shenault and inside linebacker Nate Landman, the Colorado Buffaloes stunned the Nebraska Cornhuskers 33-28 Saturday afternoon. It marked the first time in 14 years the Buffaloes went into Lincoln. Neb. and hung a ‘W’ on the Cornhuskers. From Shenault’s go-ahead touchdown reception with 1:06 remaining, to Andrew Bunch’s Hail Mary pass sailing out-of-bounds, the 70thmeeting between the two schools turned out to be an instant classic.
