Huskers Going to Alamo Bowl

On Sunday night, the Nebraska Cornhuskers accepted a bid to play in the Mastercard Alamo Bowl against the Michigan State Spartans.  The game is slated for Monday December 29th at 8 o'clock central time.  The Spartans enter the contest with an 8-4 record.  They are led by quarterback Jeff Smoker who has 21 touchdown passes this season.  Nebraska had hoped to go the Holiday Bowl in San Diego.  But Kansas State's upset of Oklahoma in the Big 12 Title Game put Texas in the Holiday Bowl instead.  Nebraska begins practicing again this Tuesday.
