    I was reading this Okie State blog in which the reader, obviously looking ahead at the Cowboys schedule this year, asked whether a team has ever beaten Texas, Oklahoma, and Nebraska in the same year. A very tough task indeed, which might lead many to think it has never been done before.

    The answer? Well never in Big 12 play, but it has been done twice: CU in 1989 and CU in 1990.

    In 1990 CU became the first Big 8 school other than Oklahoma or Nebraska to ever win a confrence title back-to-back.

    If you guys think of that, those two CU teams really did accomplish some amazing stuff.

    '90 was impressive in that they beat or tied the champions of many other conferences as well in the same season. If memory serves:
    Texas - SWC
    Tennessee (tie) - SEC
    Washington - PAC 10

    Unfortunaltely, we lost to Illinois who was at the top of the Big 10, and we didn't get to play Georgia Tech (ACC) but would have beat them handily.

    Too bad we won't see a championship team in college football take that type of tour again.

    Yep, not only all the confrence champions, but the ranked teams. This is something I like to bring up when haters call it a spilt MNC or bring up 5th down or the clip.

    Games against other ranked opponents with our ranking as well. I bet this is something Nebraska has NEVER done in one of their championship seasons.

    #5 CU 31 #8 Tennessee 31
    #9 CU 22 #21 Illinois 23
    #20 CU 29 #22 Texas 22
    #20 CU 20 #12 Washington 14
    #10 CU 32 #22 Oklahoma 23
    #9 CU 27 #2 Nebraska 12
    #1 CU 10 #5 Notre Dame 9
