The Morning After: Colorado

Turnovers are all the difference

NCAA Football: Colorado at Nebraska Bruce Thorson-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning! Tough day yesterday and hoping to hear some good news on the injury front either today or tomorrow.

I may be alone, but I feel so much better already even after a loss than I did after not having a game at all. Glad to have Nebraska football back.

Anyways, here we go.

Amid the heartache (and mistakes), Huskers show clear signs of progress - Steven Sipple: Lincoln Journal-Star

Frost lived a wonderful dream for much of the day, but it turned into something of a nightmare in the form of a 33-28 loss to Colorado and a prized freshman quarterback with an apparent knee injury that put the rookie’s immediate future in doubt.

The Anatomy of a 33-28 Season Opening Loss for Nebraska - Derek Peterson: Hail Varsity

What’s the anatomy of a 33-28 loss? A loss to hated Colorado (2-0) that came unexpectedly in coach Scott Frost’s Nebraska (0-1) debut and a loss everyone could have probably seen coming.

Nebraska put its new-and-improved offense on full display on Saturday.

A Loss Is a Loss, but Nebraska Players See Something Different This Year - Erin Sorensen: Hail Varsity

Jerald Foster didn’t want to compare. The senior offensive lineman has seen his fair share of ups and downs in his time at Nebraska, but he didn’t want to talk about that tonight.

After the Huskers’ 33-28 loss to Colorado, Foster wanted to be positive. From his perspective, there’s something about this team that’s different.

Scott Frost knew for months that, if his first Nebraska team found itself trying to win a game in the waning moments, that it would do so with a young, inexperienced quarterback leading the charge.

Nobody would have thought until only recent days, though, that the young player in the center of the storm on Saturday afternoon, who put the final pass of the game high into the air and into the end zone, who nearly led his storied program to a heart-stopping win against an old familiar foe, who instead stood in front of reporters after a heartbreaking loss, would be Andrew Bunch.

There were many bright spots but not enough to overcome the mistakes made in Scott Frost’s first game at Nebraska.

Colorado Buffaloes survive in Lincoln, beat Nebraska 33-28 - Jeff Hauser: Ralphie Report

The Colorado Buffaloes have some bad memories from their past trips to Lincoln. That string of blowouts and close losses feels a little more distant after a triumphant win in the return of a rivalry series.

In an ugly, gritty game that looked great at first, and then very quickly didn’t, Colorado rallied for a 33-28 victory over Nebraska. Steven Montez hit a streaking Laviska Shenault down the far sideline for a 40-yard go-ahead touchdown pass with 1:06 left in the game to ruin the season opener for coach Scott Frost on Saturday.

The struggle was real in Lincoln and it was felt by both teams.
