Hope you enjoyed Disney World. For the second straight year, the Huskers will make a postseason appearance in the Capital One Bowl.

Nebraska was announced as the Big Ten representative Sunday afternoon. It will face an opponent from the SEC — most likely Georgia, according to various Twitter reports. The match-up may not be finalized until after the BCS standings are released Sunday night (maybe around 7:30).

The Huskers lost a 30-13 game to South Carolina in the Capital One Bowl last year. That was their first Orlando bowl appearance since after the 1990 season.

This year’s game will kick off at noon. ABC will carry the broadcast.
