    Coach Embree was asked about the 1986 win over Nebraska at his press conference today. He talked about how the game was a "signature win" for the program, because the Buffs did not upset the No. 3 Cornhuskers, they beat them.

    Since there will likely be stories on the game in the papers, here is a link to the recap of the game, along with the YouTube highlights. Enjoy!

    Go Buffs! :thumbsup:

    I loved that game. It was euphoric. Having grown up watching CU play Nebraska, and never quite being able to beat them, I was in tears when that game ended. Think about it - I was a Freshman at CU. CU hadn't beaten NU in my lifetime up until that point.

    God I can't wait until that next game at Folsom where everybody is walking around after the game with that stunned euphoria grin on their face. NU 1986 2001, and OU 2007.

    I'd forgotten how much I hated that astroturf. I thought people were gonna die out on that surface.


    Campbell was fearless.
