ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Denver Broncos tailback Correll Buckhalter is going to have to find a new smack-talking partner to replace teammate Daniel Graham.
Their alma maters meet Friday when Colorado visits Nebraska in the last Big 12 game for both schools, and they're not scheduled to meet again anytime soon.
Graham's Buffaloes are bolting to the Pac-12 and Buckhalter's Cornhuskers are heading to the Big Ten next year, ending the rivalry after 69 games - unless or until they play each other down
the road in a non-conference game. The schools played six games early last century before beginning their run of annual meetings in 1948.
So, Graham will have to turn his trash talk on teammates who went to maybe USC or UCLA, and Buckhalter will have to find somebody from Michigan State or Minnesota to razz.
