OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Those Nebraska fans who famously travel anywhere to support the Big Red apparently are staying home in droves from the Capital One Bowl game against sixth-ranked Georgia.
The university's ticket office has unloaded less than one-third of its 12,500-ticket allotment for Tuesday's game in Orlando, Fla., and brokers have sold seats for as little as $9. Large blocks are available for far below face value.
Factors for the tepid interest? Could be the expensive air fares to Florida, the fact that No. 23 Nebraska is playing at the same bowl site for the second straight year or maybe all those road games this year left a lot of folks tapped out. There also appears to be a crisis of confidence among the fans since the Huskers' 70-31 loss to Wisconsin in the Big Ten championship game.
