Nebraska will make its 48th all-time bowl appearance and its second appearance in the Capital One Bowl on Jan. 2 when Nebraska takes on South Carolina at Florida Citrus Bowl Stadium in Orlando, Fla.
The game against the 10-2 Gamecocks is the Huskers’ fourth meeting all-time with South Carolina, and the first postseason meeting between the schools. Nebraska holds a 3-0 edge in the series, most recently winning a home-and-home series in 1986 and 1987. The 9-3 Huskers are making their fourth straight bowl trip under Head Coach Bo Pelini and Nebraska’s 48 bowl appearances rank in a tie for the fourth-most of any school in the country.
Kickoff for the 2012 Capital One Bowl is set for 1 p.m. EST (Noon CST) on Jan. 2. ESPN will provide the telecast to a national audience.
