I'm going, going
Back, back
That's right ...Big Red ...heading back to the sunshine state for the third year in a row
Where they'll face
A familiar foe

Nebraska ...accepting a bid to play in the Gator Bowl on January first against
The Georgia Bulldogs
Second year in a row the two schools will square off on New Year's Day
Of course UGA topped the Huskers 45 to 31 in the Capital One Bowl last season
Huskers ...looking to make it 6 straight years with at least 9 wins

These two teams ...have had eerily similar seasons
Both 8 and 4 overall
Both 5 and 3 in conference
And both have endured a rash of injuries ...most notably
To their star senior quarterbacks
Game is set for new year's day at 11 am local on ESPN2
