Game Recap

by CFP Staff
December 31, 2010

The biggest surprise of the bowl season, thus far, capped a four-game slate on Thursday, December 30th, when Washington upset Nebraska 19-7 in the Holiday Bowl.

The Huskies were 16-point underdogs by the Congrove Computer Rankings after being destroyed 56-21 in a regular season match with the Cornhuskers. This time, Washington held Nebraska to 49 fewer points and 344 fewer yards.

The Huskies converted a fumble on Nebraska's first drive into a 7-0 lead and never trailed. Washington QB Jake Locker was 4-for-20 for 71 yards in the first encounter and only 5-for-16 for 56 yards in the rematch, but he didn't repeat his 2-interception performance and did manage 83 yards rushing and a touchdown that gave his team a 17-7 lead.

Nebraska ended its season in disappointing fashion. In its final four games, Bo Pelini's squad lost at Texas A&M, beat Colorado, the lost to Oklahoma in the Big 12 conference championship game and Washington in the bowl game.

Conversely, Washington will open the 2011 season on a 4-game winning streak after completing the 2010 campaign with its first bowl appearance since 2002 and first bowl victory since 2000. It has been quite a turnaround under Steve Sarkisian who, in 2009, took over a team that was winless in 2008.

Nebraska is now 1-2 in Holiday Bowls and 24-23 overall. Washington improved to 1-3 in the Holiday Bowl and 15-14-1 overall.

It was the ninth time these teams met and the series is now square at 4-4-1.
