Huskers Hold First Florida Practice

The Nebraska football team practiced on the campus of the University of North Florida for the first time Friday morning, beginning preparation for the Gator Bowl against No. 23 Georgia. The Huskers and Bulldogs are set to battle Wednesday, New Year's Day, in an 11 a.m game that will be broadcast on ESPN2. The Huskers practiced in helmets, shoulder pads and shorts for just over two hours under cloudy skies and temperatures in the upper 50’s. It was the first of four practices for the Huskers during their time in Jacksonville. Head Coach Bo Pelini met with the media following practice and was happy with how his team started practice in Florida. Pelini said “We had a detail-oriented practice that was a good on both sides of the football,”. He added “Our guys were enthusiastic and had good tempo.”
