JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Coach Bo Pelini and defensive
coordinator Carl Pelini rejoined the Nebraska football team for
today's Gator Bowl practice in Jacksonville after attending the
funeral for their father.
Anthony Pelini died Tuesday in Ohio after an extended illness.
His funeral was yesterday.
Bo Pelini said it was good to spend time with family, but it's
time to get back to work.
The Cornhuskers practiced two hours in full pads at the
University of North Florida in preparation for their New Year's Day
game against Clemson.
Pelini said the team handled the warm weather well after it
being a little bit of a "shock to their systems" yesterday.
