These teams last met almost two years ago, here in Laramie on September 24th, 2011. The sea of red showed up cheering for the visitors as Dave Christensen's team took on the Huskers. Rex Burkhead had a huge night for the Big Red running 170 yards and two touchdowns. A young freshman quarterback named Brett Smith did throw for two scores that night completing 17 of 33. Brett is still the Cowboy quarterback and a good one, and we'll see him Saturday night throwing to the likes of Robert Herron who averaged 21 yards a catch.. They moved the ball last season but gave up a lot of points enroute to their 4–8 season.
