Cornhuskers storm to early 14-0 lead

November, 27, 2009
Something tells me that Nebraska offensive line coach Barney Cotton is one proud papa.

His son, Ben, snagged his first touchdown grab on his 24-yard strike from Zac Lee to boost the Cornhuskers' lead to 14-0 over Colorado.

Earlier, Niles Paul returned a punt 59 yards for a touchdown to account for the other Nebraska touchdown.

But the biggest story has been Nebraska's defense. The Blackshirts have limited Colorado to no first downs and 0-for-4 on third-down conversions so far. The Buffaloes have produced 27 yards on their first 12 snaps -- an average of 2.3 yards per play.

It's time for the Buffaloes to bounce back quickly or this game could get away from them pretty quickly.
