Nebraska, Michigan to square off in Alamo Bowl

LINCOLN, Neb. -- Nebraska will play Michigan in the MasterCard Alamo
Bowl on Dec. 28, the Big 12 Conference announced Sunday.

The Cornhuskers (7-4) and Wolverines (7-4) haven't met since the
1986 Fiesta Bowl, which Michigan won 27-23.

The Alamo Bowl, played in San Antonio's Alamo Dome, will be
televised on ESPN beginning at 7 p.m. CST.

Nebraska is back in a bowl after missing postseason play last
year for the first time since 1968. The Huskers' last bowl
appearance was in the 2003 Alamo Bowl, where they defeated Michigan
State 17-3 to finish a 10-3 season.

The Huskers also played in the Alamo Bowl in 2000, defeating
Northwestern 66-17.

Michigan has played in the Alamo once before, losing to Texas
A&M 22-20 in 1995.

Nebraska and Michigan have met five times, with Nebraska's only
win coming in 1962. The Wolverines lead the series 3-1-1.
