What Do You Want Out of a Bowl Opponent?

Big Red NetworkSenior Writer INovember 20, 2008

While there's still a lot of football left to be played before we find out where Nebraska will finish up their first season under Bo Pelini with a bowl game, we have a pretty good idea of what sort of team the Cornhuskers are going to face. Based on the most likely bowl possibilities--the Sun, Gator and Alamo Bowls--Nebraska is looking at one of the following foes respectively: the 3rd choice out of the Pac-10, the 3rd choice out of the ACC or the 4th choice out of the Big 10.

While any of those prospective opponents would represent a pretty even match-up on paper--all the likely candidates sit near the end or on the brink of the Top 25--none of them offer the opportunity I'd like most for Nebraska this season: A chance to put a head on the wall.
