Nebraska and Georgia continue to prepare and scheme for each other as the Capital One Bowl is now just two days away.  But, aside from football, players also reach out to the community.

On Sunday, the Huskers paired up with underprivileged youth and had some fun at Disney Quest in Downtown Disney.

From a meet and greet with Mickey and Minnie Mouse, to white water rafting and even trading in their helmets and pads for an air hockey mallet, Kids Day is a chance for players to have some fun and make an impact in the Florida community.

"You know it gives them hope that they can make it no matter what they're income, where they're from, it's just gives them hope to let them know to never give up,"  senior Alonzo Whaley said.

"That's the biggest thing.  You never know or understand how much this trip, to them means and how much this experience to them means and you never know what it might shape them out to be."

The Capital One Bowl kicks off Jan.,1, at noon.
