he Holiday Bowl will be a homecoming for Cornhusker. You’ll hear Sean Callahan for more on that report. There are three Huskers from the state of Arizona. Junior cornerback Prince Amukamara is from Glendale, junior safety Eric Hagg is from Peoria and sophomore offensive lineman Marcel Jones is from Phoenix. No Arizona Wildcats are from the state of Nebraska.
It looked like Saturday was the team’s first official bowl practice, because after the Big 12 title game, we didn’t hear or see much of the football team, but head coach Bo Pelini said the team was quite busy. Listen to today’s Big Red Report. Also, Nebraska Athletic Director Tom Osborne said the hiring of former Husker Turner Gill as the new Kansas coach was a great choice by Kansas and he thinks Gill will do an outstanding job for them. Osborne flew to Buffalo a couple of years ago and talked with Gill about the NU job before hiring Bo Pelini. Saturday, November 13, KU visits NU next season.
