Osborne said he was amazed at the ease with which his troops dismantled the Buffs, "It was a. great effort for us, but the ball also bounced our way a lot," he said. "I think we got more turnovers than we ever have and the thing just snowballed. We're probably not that much better than Colorado." , This matchup, most observers felt, would be won by the team making the fewer mistakes. Nebraska lost only one fumble.

San Diego Chjigers plays to tie it, 7-7, and 4 minutes later the Huskers , had another score and the lead. ; The Huskers rushed for 350 yards and passed for 165 in cruising to the widest victory margin ever against Colorado. The. worst previous lashing handed the Buffs was 41-6 in 1963. It was the most, points Nebraska had scored since a 77-7 whipping of Army in 1972. Vmce Ferragamo, , who guided the Huskers to' eight of their nine touchdowns before leaving with about 3:00 gone in the third quarter, said the offense truly had put it all together. v "When your line's blocking and Wants to play and you've got good running backs, it's pretty hard to take,. a game away from a team," he said. "After that first touchdown (by Colorado) I said to myself, it's going to be a long afternoon. But we hadn't touched the ball yet and I knew we had to stick it to them with a sustained drive. "The key to a good passing game is to have a good running attack. My receivers knew how to beat a zone. If they know what to do, you can pick a zone apart." Ferragamo Sharp Ferragamo picked the zone apart with eight completions in 10 attempts and two touchdowns. Anthony led the first-unit rushers with 69 yards in 15 carries while No. 3 I-back Dave Gillespie romped for 106 yards in 22 carries. Colorado, which entered the game owning the Big Eight's best offense (a 406-yard average) carved out 454 yards, but couldn't score after its early success until 8:44 remained in (he third quarter. The Buffs were missing tail back Tony Reed, who was left home with linebacker Gary Campbell for disciplinary reasons. Reed, who had averaged 81 yards, was charged with shoplifting in Boulder and Campbell was suspended after being involved in barroom fii;ht. Colorado Coach Bill Mallory said it didn't matter that the players were absent. 'Bottom Fell Out" "Good Lord, -when you get beat that bad, they wouldn't have made any difference," he said. "Let's face it, we just got our butts kicked. Everything in. the world happened. The bottom just fell out. "That last half was long," he added. "Tom Osborne was a real gentleman about the game." Asked what Osborne said to him afterward, he replied: "He said he couldn't believe what happened and I said I couldn't either.. I just told him we .got out-coached . and out: played. I just can't figure out what : the hell happened. I was wondering if I was having a nightmare or something." Colorado shocked the Big Red fans before the momentum changed when quarterback David Williams 'streaked 74 Nebraska's Tony Davis is stopped as Buffalo hurdles action yards with less than a minute gone. "Somebody missed an assignment," said defensive end Rob Martin. Williams Home Free That was obvious for Williams was home free once he got past the line of scrimmage. Ferragamo got the matching touchdown five plays later. Anthony zipped for 15 yards to put the ball on the Colorado 42 on the fourth play and then Ferragamo connected with split end Bobby Thomas for the touchdown. Colorado couldn't move, punted and Ferragamo guided the Huskers 56 yards jn six plays for the go-ahead touchdown. He threw to Thomas and John O'Leary to cover 42 yards and then O'Leary swept in from 10 yards out.
