For the second consecutive year, the Huskers won’t be headed to a bowl game. However, one Husker will be representing Nebraska this postseason. Senior running back Devine Ozigbo has accepted an invitation to participate in the annual East-West Shrine Game in January.
The Shrine Game is an opportunity for players who hope to move on to the NFL to showcase their abilities. The game will be held in Tropicana Field in Tampa, Florida on January 19th.
Ozigbo enjoyed a breakout season for the Huskers, becoming the first 1,000 yard rusher since Ameer Abdullah back in 2014.
