The first goal of the season has been achieved.
Nebraska will be representing the Big 12 North in the conference’s final championship game.
There was some doubt following the Cornhuskers’ controversial loss to Texas A&M last week that Nebraska could rally the troops.
Colorado was 2-0 following the firing of Dan Hawkins and the Buffaloes always gave Nebraska their best shot.
Missouri was surely rooting for Colorado as a Nebraska loss meant that the Tigers would vie for their first Big 12 Championship.
The Cornhuskers denied two teams at once by sending Colorado packing.
Now on to goal No. 2: Winning the conference for the first time since 1999.
