11.25.2009 / The Huskers Head to Boulder. Posting by Greg Sharpe, The Voice of the Huskers.

Big 12 North Champions! Sounds nice but as Bo Pelini has been saying since beating K-State on Saturday night Colorado is next. The Huskers have indeed won the north and will face the Texas Longhorns on December 5th in Arlington, Texas but this week they travel to Boulder to finish the regular season against the Buffaloes. The last thing that the Huskers want is to lose their season finale and have little momentum when they line up to face Texas.

Colorado has had a disappointing season. The Buffs are just 3-8 on the year and it looks like they will be in the market for a new coach next week. CU had the type of schedule with Nebraska, Missouri and Kansas all at home to make some noise in the league race, but after a three loss non-conference slate couldn’t build any momentum. Dan Hawkins benched his own son as the starting quarterback a month ago and Tyler Hansen has added a spark to the CU offense.

This CU team tries hard but lack speed on defense and the offense seems to shoot itself in the foot most weeks. One thing that is for certain is that the Huskers always get Colorado’s best shot. You can expect that again Friday. That is why Coach Pelini has been preaching since Saturday to get ready for Colorado and not look ahead to the Longhorns. The Huskers would be wise to heed that advice and not let Colorado make their year by beating the Big Red. This one will probably be close. Go Big Red!

What are your thoughts about this week’s game? Do you think the offense is making improvements? Share your thoughts.
