Mel Tucker’s halftime message was simple: We’ve taken their best shot. Now, let’s go give them ours.

Colorado hadn’t touched Nebraska quarterback Adrian Martinez, whose jersey was clean and whose passing was perfect, and the Buffaloes had managed just 84 yards of offense and none on the ground.

In a scintillating comeback, the Buffaloes overcame a 17-0 halftime deficit in Tucker’s first home game and sent fans streaming onto the field in celebration.

James Stefanou’s 34-yard field goal gave Colorado its first lead in overtime and the Buffaloes beat 25th-ranked Nebraska 34-31 on Saturday when punter Isaac Armstrong’s 49-yard try sailed wide right .

It was Buffaloes’ second straight win over their old Big 12 rival. Colorado rallied to win in the closing minutes last year in Lincoln.



Michigan is off to a wobbly start this season and Army almost took advantage.

Jake Moody made a 43-yard field goal and the seventh-ranked Wolverines forced and recovered a fumble to hold on for a 24-21 double-overtime win over the Black Knights on Saturday.

The Wolverines didn’t lead until the second extra period and would have lost at the end of regulation to the Black Knights (1-1) if Cole Talley made a 50-yard kick that was just short and to the right.

It marked the second straight year the U.S. Military Academy nearly beat a Top 10 team for the first time in more than a half century. The Black Knights pushed No. 5 Oklahoma into overtime on the road last year before losing 28-21.

Army had won 10 straight, a run that college football’s winningest program barely stopped.
