Nissan Stadium, Nashville, Tennessee

Nebraska vs Tennessee Music City Bowl – The University of Nebraska has been selected to participate in the Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl in Nashville, Tenn.  The Huskers will take on the Tennessee Volunteers of the Southeastern Conference on Friday, Dec. 30 with kickoff at 2:30 p.m. CT.

The Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl will be televised nationally on ESPN and is played at Nissan Stadium, the home of the Tennessee Titans.

Head Coach Mike Riley is guiding his 10th team to a bowl game, including two at Nebraska and eight at Oregon State. Riley owns a 7-2 record in bowl games and his 78 percent winning percentage ranks fifth in NCAA history among coaches who have appeared in at least eight bowl games.

Tennessee Volunteers

Nebraska vs Tennessee Music City Bowl – A season that started with such promise went downhill so quickly. This was supposedly Tennessee’s year. The year that Butch Jones had been building to brick by brick. They would take the SEC East and return to glory. Squeaking past Appalachian State was brushed off as opening weekend jitters, and they became a second-half team after coming back against Florida at home. The Hail Mary win over Georgia the next week had many thinking fate was on the side of Big Orange, but an inability to finish the job against Texas A&M was the beginning of the end for the Vols’ lofty goals.

They would be taken apart by Alabama at home the next week and suffer humiliation at the hands of Will Muschamp after that. From there, a week of complete turmoil came over Knoxville as RB Jalen Hurd announced he would transfer, and it seemed like a mutiny was in store.

The indecency of missing out on the SEC East title in a season in which they beat Florida and Georgia was driven home when Jones said that his team had won the “championship of life.” That’s all well and good, but can they rally to win a bowl game with a perceived motivational barrier? The stakes of this game were supposed to be bigger before Tennessee’s season tanked.

Nebraska Cornhuskers

Nebraska vs Tennessee Music City Bowl – Nebraska looked like a Big Ten West favorite for a while with the Huskers’ 7-0 start. After a 23-17 loss on the road to Wisconsin, Nebraska was still in good shape, sitting at No. 10 in the nation ahead of a huge game against No. 6 Ohio State.

But the Buckeyes flat out dominated the game, winning by 59 points in a 62-3 rout. Heading into the last week of the regular season, the Huskers were still in the division title hunt, needing a win over Iowa and then a Minnesota loss to Wisconsin to clinch their trip to Indianapolis. They wound up getting neither, and so here they are. Things went downhill.

Nebraska quarterback Tommy Armstrong Jr. had been impressive all season. He was carted off the game against Ohio State after what looked like a scary injury, but he did return to the sideline for the remainder of the game after a brief hospital visit. He played during Nebraska’s next game against Minnesota, but didn’t play in the next one against Maryland. He was able to return for the season finale against Iowa, a 40-10 loss.

Head coach Mike Riley’s second season in Lincoln showed improvement from the 6-7 campaign in 2015, which any second-year coach can take pride in. If Nebraska can continue to compete inside the Big Ten, Riley will likely stay put for some time.
