#21 Nebraska vs. #10 South Carolina
Date: Jan. 2
Location: Florida Citrus Bowl Stadium, Orlando
Nebraska was able to grab the Capital One Bowl berth from Legends winner Michigan State thanks in part to a 24-3 victory over Sparty earlier in the season. Running back Rex Burkhead gets the majority of touches in Nebraska's offense, and will put up his fair share of numbers against the Gamecocks.
South Carolina likely would have been in the mix for a BCS at-large bid if they didn't play in the SEC. Despite losing Marcus Lattimore in October, the Cocks went 10-2 thanks to a defense allowing less than 20 points per game.
Like most Cornhusker games, Nebraska will win if Taylor Martinez throws the ball with any semblance of consistency. Alas, he has yet to prove that he can do so, so I am forced to go with the Head Ball Coach.
Prediction: South Carolina 27, Nebraska 21
