Colorado Buffaloes Football
The Colorado Buffaloes (6-4, 3-4 Big 12) close out the regular season by traveling to the northeast to face the Nebraska Cornhuskers (5-5, 3-4 Big 12) in a pivotal Big 12 North Division game this Friday, November 26 in a 10:11 a.m. mountain kickoff at Memorial Stadium/Tom Osborne Field... ABC will televise the game nationally, with Terry Gannon, Tim Brant, Terry Bowden and Suzy Schuster to call the action... Westwood One will also be on hand to send the game across the nation on radio, and possibly around the globe as well with John Tautges and Dan Sileo behind the mikes... This game will mark the 400th consecutive worked by CU senior associate AD Jon Burianek (home, road and neutral; his string started with a 49-19 win over Air Force in 1970 and he’s worked everyone since)... Colorado, bowl eligible, will play in the postseason for the 16th time in the last 20 seasons (staying home only in 1987, 1997, 2000 and 2003)... The Buffs take a 16-3 record into this game since 2001 against Big 12 North Division teams (Nebraska is 11-8)... Dating back to 1985, Colorado is 65-12 against teams with three or more losses; CU is also 46-16-1 in its last 63 games played in November (trailing only this week’s foe, Nebraska, by 8-4-1)... The Buffs last won both their season opener and regular season finale in 1995 but can do so this year... Colorado is currently playing the nation’s 36th toughest schedule according to NCAA calculations; 11 Big 12 schools are currently in the top 50 (seven in the top 20, including Texas A&M at No. 1 and Baylor at No. 2); the other, Missouri, is No. 85 (Nebraska is in at No. 50)...CU’s website, www.CUBuffs.com features game day updates and live stats for all games, home and road.
