One of the best rivalries in college football doesn’t happen every year, but we wish it did.
The Colorado Buffaloes and Nebraska Cornhuskers produced a few of the best games in the late 20th century. After brief hiatus from being among the nation’s elite, it looks like Nebraska could be back under new head coach Scott Frost.
While Colorado doesn’t poise the same threat, the Buffaloes aren’t going away quietly. Colorado opened the season with a win over in-state rival Colorado State – giving Mel Tucker his first win as the program’s new head coach.
Now, Tucker and Frost turn their sights toward each other.
The players have done so as well. There’s been plenty of trash talk between the two programs this week and it’s not about to end.
Colorado’s Davion Taylor called out Nebraska quarterback Adrian Martinez with his comments on Thursday.
“We have to keep him in the pocket and make him pass. If we make him pass, I feel like that’s probably one of his weaknesses,” Taylor said.
