After eking out a narrow 27-25 victory over Kansas State last week, the 6-4 Cornhuskers earned bowl eligibility for the first time since 2003. It might be the worst of the 43 bowl teams in the Cornhuskers' proud 116-season history.

But just getting to a bowl game will be important for the Nebraska program.

"I think this is a big turning point," Nebraska safety Blake Tiedtke said. "We have a lot of young guys playing. There's a lot of talent on this team. Getting them to a bowl game and letting them get the experience will bring nothing but great things."
