College Football: Brown Sets Colorado Record, Longhorns Defeat Texas A&M


In U.S. College Football, Chris Brown set a school record with six touchdowns as 15th-ranked Colorado shocked second-ranked Nebraska, 62-36 in Boulder, Colorado. The homestanding Buffaloes raced to a 28-3 first quarter lead and held a 42-23 advantage at halftime.

In giving up the most points in school history, Nebraska cost itself a chance to play for the U.S. National Championship. Meanwhile, Colorado moved its record to 9-2 and will play in the Big 12 Conference title game for the first time.

Meanwhile, the fifth-ranked Texas Longhorns used a pair of fourth quarter touchdowns by Cedric Benson to pull away from arch-rival Texas A&M, 21-7 at College Station, Texas. Benson's scores were from five and 12 yards. Texas scored their other touchdown in the first quarter on a return of a blocked punt.

The only score for the Aggies was a four-yard run by Keith Joseph in the third quarter. Texas finishes its regular season with a 10-1 record and awaits a probable New Year's Day bowl game. Texas A&M finishes its regular season at 7-4.

Labrandon Toefield rushed for 173 yards and three touchdowns and Louisiana State moved to within one game of the Southeastern Conference title game with a 41-38 victory over 25th-ranked Arkansas. LSU will play Auburn next week with the winner claiming the West title and advancing to the SEC title game on December 8.
