It's time for the ending moment of the 2011 and inaugural Big Ten season for the Cornhuskers.
It was an interesting season for Nebraska, reaching a high point of being ranked No. 8 in the nation and breaking the top ten for five weeks, to a low point of being ranked No. 22 after a stunning upset by Northwestern and a Michigan debacle where Nebraska threw away the game on turnovers.
Now the Big Red sits at No. 21 in the nation facing off against the No. 9 South Carolina Gamecocks.
Nebraska has played in the various incarnations of the Capital One Bowl (The Citrus Bowl) only once before, falling to the national champions the Yellow Jackets of Georgia Tech.
However, a Nebraska team has won the bowl game, the now defunct (thanks to Trev Alberts) Nebraska-Omaha Mavericks who beat Eastern Kentucky in 1955.
So what are the five keys for Nebraska to join its northern brethren in winning the Capital One Bowl?
