The Nebraska Cornhuskers (10-3) will make the trip to Orlando, Florida to go up against the Georgia Bulldogs (10-2) in what should be a highly competitive gridiron battle in Tuesday's Capital One Bowl.
Both of the talented NCAA programs will head into the matchup coming off tough losses in big games.
In the Big Ten title game, the Cornhuskers suffered a terrible defeat missing out on a Rose Bowl appearance. However, the Bulldogs fell slightly short in the SEC championship game, which ultimately costed them a bid for the national title.
Georgia was just five-yards shy of a touchdown in a 32-28 loss to Alabama on Dec. 1 when Chris Conley was tackled as regulation expired.
"We spent ourselves in a worthy cause. We of course, wanted to play for a national championship. We knew we were just a few yards or a tipped ball, or however you want to say it away from winning it. It was heartbreaking, no doubt. We were highly hurt by it... So you have to kind of get over the heartbreak of that," coach Mark Richt told ESPN.
Tough loss aside, the Capital One Bowl game will be a sentimental one for Richt, who was born and raised in Nebraska growing up in a family of Cornhuskers fans.
"I've known about Big Red for a long time. It's been ingrained in my family. My mom and dad were born in Nebraska, and all of their families are from there. All of my siblings except one were born in Nebraska, so I've got a lot of ties there," he told the Georgia's official website.
