So what happened to Nebraska fans support like no one else? Neither Nebraska nor Auburn have sold out there allotment of tickets for Monday's Cotton Bowl and there is ZERO buzz for this game.
In fact, according to Stubhub.com - you can buy tickets for as low at $12 bucks! What?!!! The face value is $90! This, the excitement for a game that has Nebraska in it? Last year, the Alamo Bowl had the fans buzzing after missing a bowl game in 2004...and the Huskers were facing a Michigan team that had played like crap all year. At least Auburn has defeated 2 BCS teams....one being Florida!! Why aren't the fans going in droves?
I, for one, am very excited for the game. I've picked Auburn to win 28-24 but a big Nebraska win could make a large statement for next year. I think it could be one of the best of the bowl season if both teams show up. I guess the question should be asked as well - will the fans show too?
