It had been three years since Nebraska had won a bowl game.

Bo Pelini's job status - in question - if not by those around him, definitely by the Husker fan base.

Big Red had as much adversity surrounding a program as there exists in the country, but the Huskers got the job done in the Gator Bowl against Georgia.

Nebraska exacted revenge on the Bulldogs for a loss in last year's Capital One Bowl by defeating them in the Gator Bowl Wednesday, 24-19.

Quincy Enunwa was named the MVP of the game with two receiving touchdowns, including a 99-yarder in the third quarter that goes down as the longest play in school history.

For the seniors on the team, the win held extra significance.
    
It's the first bowl game that they have won as a class - and head coach Bo Pelini says they earned it.

"They prepared well," said Pelini. "They had their fun, but the preparation both before Christmas and since we've been down here was good. When you have great preparation, you're going to execute well. So that's what it came down to."

Nebraska ends the season 9-4 - the Huskers have finished with at least nine wins every year under Bo Pelini.
