Nebraska Head Coach Bill Callahan

On the way his team played

“I’m really proud of the way our kids played. This was a total team effort.  The special teams, defense, and offense all rose to the occasion today and met the challenge and I can’t say enough good things.”


On the victory

“What better way than today to put it all together.  A performance like this on the road, against a division leader, one that is 5-0 at home, is huge.  We were underdogs coming in here and our kids just played.  It’s a great win for our football team, a great way to finish the season and go into a Bowl game and I couldn’t be any prouder.  To win in the style we did on the road, in front of <?xml:namespace prefix="st1" ns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags"?>America, it speaks volumes for the character and pride of our kids.  It was a tremendous collective effort.”


On defensive play

“(We were) superb in every sense.  Our coverage was very exact.  They (Colorado) are very similar to us, but we did a very good job in planning and executing.”


On play of QB Zac Taylor

?’He’s a smart, intelligent quarterback.  He makes good decisions on the move and he doesn’t turn it over.  If he doesn’t have an answer, he finds the answer.  That’s what I’m most impressed about is his ability to create and find."


On Colorado

“This is a fine Colorado football team.  They were solid in every area.  For our kids to come in and play like this, it’s a tremendous effort.  We have a lot of respect for them (Colorado).
