Nebraska to head West for bowl game
Nebraska is going back to California.
The Huskers are officially heading to the West Coast for the second straight year, and once again, they’ll take on a Pac-12 foe. This time, Nebraska will get to face off with UCLA in the Foster Farms Bowl at Levi Stadium in Santa Clara, California.
The Dec. 26 game will be broadcast on ESPN at 8:15 p.m. CT.
Nebraska got into the expanded field despite the fact that it fell short of reaching the six-win mark for the first time since joining the B1G.
As it is, it’ll mark the eighth straight year in which the Huskers will play in a postseason game.
It will be a rematch of sorts for both schools. Nebraska and UCLA had a home-and-home series in which the Bruins held the upper hand. With Bo Pelini at the helm, Nebraska fell 36-30 in 2012 and lost 41-21 in 2013 when the series came to Lincoln.
Nebraska is one of 10 B1G teams that are expected to be bowling.
