WEEK 13: Huskers

Well, if  you are scoring at home, that is 4 straight over the Huskers. That, the high water mark for Iowa wins in this series.  But Nebraska did not fire their coach after this loss to the Hawks….

Maybe if the Hawks make it 8 straight in 4 years!  But things will be more interesting in the years ahead with the young QB, seems a star in the making.  

So the Huskers were off to do whatever teams do when they are NOT bowl eligible, as the Hawks began preparation for the trip to San Diego and the Holiday Bowl.

OUTBACK BOWL: Bulldogs

Err, hold that thought!  Right up to that title game Saturday that seemed the destination, but then that Outback Bowl made their pick, and for the 6th time, the Hawks will play on New Year’s Day in Tampa Florida.
