Huskers Set For Capital One Bowl
The Huskers enter the postseason ranked 21st in the Associated Press Poll and 20th in the USA Today Coaches poll. Nebraska's nine victories marked its fourth straight nine-win season under Pelini, and the Huskers are one of just eight programs with four straight nine-win seasons. A victory in the Capital One Bowl would give Nebraska three consecutive 10-win seasons for the first time since 1999 to 2001.
"We are pleased to earn the invitation to the Capital One Bowl in Orlando," Nebraska Head Coach Bo Pelini said. "Outside of the BCS, the Capital One Bowl is arguably the top bowl game out there. Our team has battled through a lot this year to reach this point, and we look forward to the opportunity to earn a 10th win this season. South Carolina has an outstanding football team, and we know they will present a big challenge for our football team."
South Carolina comes into the Capital One Bowl with a 10-2 record, including a 6-2 mark in the SEC, and is ranked 10th in the AP Poll and No. 9 by the coaches. The Gamecocks' only losses this season were by three points to defending national champion Auburn and on the road at Arkansas. South Carolina's 10-win season is just the second in Gamecock school history, joining a 10-2 campaign in 1984.READ MORE
