Bowl Games 2010: Nebraska Football in Holiday Bowl Rematch With Washington

In a rather unfortunate turn of events, the Huskers are placed in the Holiday Bowl, the same bowl they smashed Arizona 33-0 in last year, and are facing the 6-6 Washington Huskies.

Nebraska smashed Washington 56-21 earlier in the year.

The game will ensure that Nebraska will play the Huskies three times among this season and next, as Washington is in a home-and-home series with the Huskers.

While the game would seem to be an easy win for the Huskers, the problem will be figuring out a way to get pumped up for it.

This time around should prove to be a lower scoring contest.

The first meeting featured a highly touted Jake Locker against a defense still trying to find its post-Suh legs.  Taylor Martinez outperformed Locker and gashed the Husky defense.

Almost a full season later, Martinez has regressed as a result of injuries and a rookie wall.  The Husker defense seems to have found its mojo, however.  Locker may be in for an even worse outing this time around.

I think the Huskers win 34-13.
