The Buffs won last year’s game against Nebraska 36-14 in Boulder. This year’s will be played at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln.

Colorado has not played a game on NBC since the 1995 Fiesta Bowl.

This will be the eighth game in CU history on a national broadcast on NBC, with six of the other seven being bowl games, including the 1962, 1977, 1990 and 1991 Orange Bowls and the 1993 and 1995 Fiesta Bowls.

CU said the last time the Buffs played in both Lincoln and Fort Collins was in the 1996 season, which is also the last time Colorado played at Colorado State.

Colorado ends the 2024 season at home the day after Thanksgiving, on Friday, Nov. 29, against Oklahoma State.
