The Foster Farms bowl hosts Nebraska and UCLA. In his first year at Nebraska, Mike Riley went 5-7. Although that is not an ideal record from a Nebraska point of view, you have to look at the positives from this season for the huskers. Six of the seven losses Nebraska suffered were by one score. They played almost every team they faced down to the wire, but just couldn’t find a way to win. Nebraska does have a win against Big Ten champ Michigan State although there is a lot of controversy surrounding the game winning play. For UCLA, they come into this game as the six point favorite with a record of 8-4. They are led by Josh Rosen, a true freshman that has shown a lot of good things on the collegiate level as an 18 year-old. Nebraska has given up more than 400 yards a game and are facing a UCLA offense that averages 472 yards of offense a game. Judging by those stats, it looks like it might be a rough game to watch for the Nebraska faithful. Once again, Nebraska doesn’t deserve to be in a bowl game this season because of their record, but the abundance of bowl games allows this to happen. Hopefully they can show that the Big Ten is just a really tough conference and steal a victory from the Bruins.
