LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) – Nebraska will meet Washington in the Holiday Bowl in San Diego on Dec. 30 in a rematch of the Cornhuskers' 56-21 victory in Seattle in September.

The No. 17 Cornhuskers (10-3) are coming off a 23-20 loss to Oklahoma in the Big 12 championship game. Washington (6-6) beat UCLA, California and Washington State in succession to become bowl eligible.

The Huskers are in the Holiday Bowl for the third time and the second straight year. They beat Arizona 33-0 last year. Washington is in a bowl for the first time since 2002.
