Husker Prepare for Georgia

Due to rain throughout the day on Saturday that saturated the practice field on the campus of the University of North Florida, the Nebraska football team moved to a new practice site on Sunday, as the Huskers prepared for the No. 23 Georgia Bulldogs on field turf at Creeks Athletic Association.
The Huskers were set to practice in the morning, but moved practice to the afternoon due to morning rain in the Jacksonville area. The team continued to prepare for Wednesday’s Gator Bowl with the Bulldogs for just under two hours in shorts, helmets and shoulders pads.
Head Coach Bo Pelini met with the media following Sunday’s practice and thought his team adjusted well to the schedule and locations changes.
The time off since the end of the regular season has given players time to heal, specifically junior wide receiver Jamal Turner, who missed five games in 2013 due to injury.
The Huskers had the rest of Sunday off and will return Creeks Athletic Association today for their final practice before the Gator Bowl. The game is set for 11 a.m. (CT) on Wednesday, Jan. 1, at EverBank Field, home of the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars.
