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.
