Tonight's NCAA record 326th consecutive sellout crowd was the largest in Memorial Stadium history. That's because with the East Stadium expansion the capacity is now more than 91,000... Let's go to the stadium for tonight's college football season opener between the Wyoming Cowboys and Nebraska Huskers. Wyoming got on the board first as Brett Smith hit Jalen Claiborne with a six yard touchdown pass to lead 7-0. With the score 7-3, Smith threw deep by Stanley Jean Baptiste came up with the interception at the goal line and returned it to near midfield. Taylor Martinez then hit Jamal Turner with a touchdown pass and the Huskers led 10-7. After a Wyoming touchdown gave them the lead 14-10, Ameer Abdullah ran 62 yards deep inside Wyoming territory. Imani Cross scored on a one yard run and Nebraska led 17-14. In the 3rd quarter, the Huskers scored twice more. Cross on a long run and a Martinez to Quincy Enunwa TD pass gave Nebraska a 31-14 lead. Wyoming scored 3 more touchdowns but came up short, 37-34. The Huskers win their 28th consecutive opener and host Southern Miss next Saturday. Wyoming goes home to host Idaho.
