LINCOLN, Neb. – Nebraska offensive coordinator Tim Beck is worried.
The Cornhuskers lost by 39 points to Wisconsin in the Big Ten championship game. Beck says if they don't get over it, "it's going to get ugly" when they play sixth-ranked Georgia in the Capital One Bowl.
The No. 23 Huskers are 10-point underdogs against Georgia. The challenge for Nebraska coach Bo Pelini and his assistants between now and Jan. 1 is to make sure the players have moved on from the 70-31 pounding by the Badgers.
The Huskers (10-3) are preparing in earnest for the Bulldogs (11-2) after having short workouts last week. The players will be dismissed for Christmas on Thursday. They'll return to Lincoln next Wednesday and travel that afternoon to Orlando, Fla.
