JACKSONVILLE, FL -- Bo Pelini's first season as Nebraskacoach ended with a victory and optimism about the future, two things that have been in short supply in with the Cornhuskers in recent years.
Joe Ganz threw for two touchdowns, Alex Henery kicked four field
goals and Nebraska beat Clemson 26-21 in the Gator Bowl on
Nebraska (9-4) ended the season with a four-game winning streak,
including a victory against rival Colorado, won six of its final
seven games and had success in a January bowl game for the first
time in nine years.
It capped quite a turnaround for the Cornhuskers, who hired
Pelini to replace fired coach Bill Callahan after missing the
postseason in 2007.
