Nebraska talked a bit of trash to Colorado before the game this past Saturday.
Nebraska was looking to back up its talk after losing to the Buffaloes 33-28 a season ago. What did the Huskers do this time around?
Blow a 17-0 halftime lead and lose 34-31 in overtime.
After the game, Nebraska coach Scott Frost and QB Adrian Martinez put the blame on themselves. Darrion Daniels, a defensive tackle, said that the Huskers were still the better team on Saturday.
But, it’s not just Daniels who believes that. So does Huskers safety Mohamed Barry:
“Honestly, it was back-and-forth,” Barry said according to the Denver Post. “I felt like the first half, I thought it was over with. I thought we were about to (beat) them, it was about to be a blowout. And that’s what it should’ve been. We had them. We were better than them. In that second half, we didn’t finish and we have to finish.”
Nebraska will have a chance to seal the deal in Week 3 when the Huskers host Northern Illinois.
