WELL HERE IN JACKSONVILLE IT RAINED FOR ALL OF THE GATOR BOWL GAME BUT TODAY THE SUN IS DEFINITELY SHINING ON HUSKER NATION AS THEY DEFEAT THE GEORGIA BULLDOGS 24-19 HERE IN THE GATOR BOWL AT EVERBANK STADIUM.
 
 
I TOLD YOU THAT'S ALL WE WANTED I TOLD YOU THIS SENIOR CLASS TO GO OUT AS WINNERS. WE'VE BEEN THROUGH SO MUCH TO COME OUT HERE AND SET THE TABLE FOR A GREAT 2014 FOR THESE YOUNGER GUYS TO WIN A BIG 10 CHAMPIONSHIP, THAT'S ALL WE WANTED TO DO.
 
 
YEAH, IT WAS A BIG WIN FOR US TO START OFF 2014 RIGHT FOR THE UNDERCLASSMEN. THIS IS BIG MOMENTUM FOR THEM AND IT'S JUST SOMETHING SPECIAL. SOMETHING  SPECIAL FOR THE SENIOR BECAUSE SINCE I HAVE BEEN HERE WE HAVEN'T WON A BOWL GAME
AND OF COURSE THE 99 AND A HALF YARD PASS FROM TOMMY ARMSTRONG TO QUINCY ENUNWA IS THE LONGEST PLAY IN HUSKER HISTORY AND THE LONGEST PLAY IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL HISTORY
 
 
LUCKILY YOU KNOW OUR COACHES TRUST IN US AS PLAYMAKERS AND I KNEW EITHER MYSELF OR KENNY WAS GOING TO COME UP WITH A BIG PLAY. THEY PLAYED COVER TWO SO I WAS ABLE TO GET INTO THE HOLE AND TOMY JUST LAUNCHED IT UP FOR ME AND FROM THERE I WAS ABLE TO MAKE A PLAY.
 
 
WE HAD A COUPLE DIFFERENT PLAY CALLS IN MIND AND WE DECIDED TO THROW IT AND COACH BECK DECIDED TO TAKE A SHOT. HE LIKED THE CALL. HE LIKED THE OPPORTUNITY AND IT WAS THERE AND TOMMY MADE A GREAT PLAY AND QUINCY NOT ONLY MADE THE GREAT CATCH BUT THE GREAT PLAY AFTER THE CATCH
SO THE HUSKER DO GET THAT COVETED 9TH WIN. THEY DO SO AGAINST THE GEORGIA BULLDOGS A TEAM THAT DEFEATED THEM LAST YEAR IN THE CAPITAL ONE BOWL. BUT NEBRASKA TURNS THE TABLES HERE THIS YEAR HERE IN JACKSONVILLE AS COACH BO PELINI HAS ACHIEVED 9 OR MORE VICTORIES IN EACH OF HIS 6 SEASONS HERE AT NEBRASKA AND THEY CLOSE THE SEASON THE WAY THEY WANTED TO, BREAKING A  THREE GAME BOWL LOSING STREAK. FROM JACKSONVILLE IT WAS NEBRASKA 24, GEORGIA 19, FROM A RAINY EVERBANK STADIUM, ED LITTLER NEWS 5 SPORTS
