BOULDER, Colo. (AP) -- Colorado linebacker Drew Wahlroos accused five Nebraska fans of attacking him outside a strip club after his team's big victory, breaking his nose and giving him a black eye.

Wahlroos was treated at Boulder Community Hospital on Saturday and a nurse told police about the assault.

``It was nothing, really,'' Wahlroos said. ``I was at the wrong place at the wrong time.''

Wahlroos, a 21-year-old junior, will not press charges. The university said Tuesday it would not comment on the case.

Wahlroos was celebrating his team's 62-36 win Friday over then-No. 2 Nebraska when he stepped outside the club and got into an argument with the five Cornhuskers fans, police officer Owen McKinney said.

``I heard someone say something to my left, and I got hit from my right,'' Wahlroos said.

Wahlroos said he fell and one of the men kicked him once or twice in the face. When friends of the 263-pound player came outside, the fans ran.

During Friday's game, Wahlroos forced a fumble in the first quarter, and Colorado scored a touchdown on the next play.
