Get the inside scoop on your favorite team:
Nebraska against Auburn would be one of the most highly anticipated bowl clashes – if this was 1993 when both teams finished in the top five.
As it is, the game remains a pretty attractive matchup. Auburn entered the season with national championship aspirations and posted victories over LSU and Florida. Yet, home losses to Arkansas and Georgia prevented the Tigers from playing in the SEC Championship game.
Nebraska, which opened the season hoping to regain national prominence, made strides in that direction by winning the Big 12. However, the Cornhuskers went 0-3 against teams ranked in the top 10.
