Colorado takes down Nebraska: Social media reactions

The Buffaloes finished the sweep of the Cornhuskers.

NCAA Football: Nebraska at Colorado Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

WHAT. A. GAME. Trailing 17-0 at halftime, Colorado outscored Nebraska 34-14 in the second half and overtime to defeat their former Big XII rivals for the second straight year. Mel Tucker’s Buffaloes improved to 2-0 on the young season after what was one of the greatest comebacks in school history. What made this win even more special were the thousands of Cornhuskers fans who made the seven-hour trek from Lincoln, Neb. just to witness it.

As you can imagine, minutes after Isaac Armstrong’s 48-yard field goal attempt fell short, people were abuzz on social media reacting to Colorado’s comeback victory.

Here are some of the notable reactions from former CU players:

Kordell Stewart

Joel Klatt

Afolabi Laguda

Chidobe Awuzie

Phillip Lindsay

Juwann Winfree

Jeremy Bloom

And some more reaction from around the sports world:

Chris Fowler, ESPN

Barstool’s ‘Big Cat’

Ashley Adamson, Pac-12 Network

Kyle Clark, News 9 Denver

But perhaps the tweet of the day (and the biggest burn) came from former Iowa State quarterback and 12-year NFL veteran Sage Rosenfels:

Next week Colorado hosts Air Force (11 am MT, Pac-12 Network) in their final tune up before Pac-12 play begins. The Buffaloes are 12-4 all-time against the Falcons.
