Huskers fall in fourth to Georgia: No. 16 Nebraska hung tough with No. 7 Georgia for three quarters, but a pair of Bulldog touchdown passes in the fourth quarter provided the margin in the Huskers' 45-31 loss in the Capital One Bowl.
   Senior I-back Rex Burkhead led the Huskers with 140 yards and a touchdown on 25 carries, while adding four receptions for 39 yards and another score in his final game as a Husker.

COMMENTARY

Stryker

Nebraska had a decent plan; it just didn’t have enough good athletes to execute the plan.”

Tad Stryker

Hamar

It wasn’t, all in all, a horrible game by the Huskers. It just wasn’t good enough.”

Bob Hamar
Grand Island Independent

Shatel

Playmakers make plays. Georgia had ’em and more of ’em.”

Callahan

The ball skills of Nebraska’s corners were the worst we’ve seen all season.”

Sean Callahan

Vogel

The one key ingredient the Huskers are missing is consistency and you don’t recruit that, you coach it.”

Brandon Vogel

Sipple

In the last two games, Nebraska defenders’ heads were spinning. After Tuesday’s loss, Pelini put a positive spin on the big picture.”

Steve Sipple*
Lincoln Journal Star

Chatelain

How close are the Huskers? And should Bo Pelini tweak the machine or overhaul it?”

Dirk Chatelain*

Husker Mike

Nebraska gave a good effort, but the bottom line is that Nebraska didn't play well enough to win.”
