  Even though reports out of Lincoln suggest Nebraska fans aren't buying tickets to the Gator Bowl, head coach Bo Pellini believes Husker Nation will be well represented in Jacksonville.
"Our fans will be here. I think between our fan base and Georgia's fan base, there will be some electricity in the air when we get together on the first."
 Georgia head coach Mark Richt is thankful Jack Frost shouldn't be in the air.
"Just to be playing in a warm weather city is fun."
  Amen to that. And it's still fun for Richt to face Nebraska.
"I was born in Omaha, Nebraska. Everybody loved them. My cousins are still die-hard Nebraska fans. So it's a big deal for me to get a chance to play them. It's pretty neat."
   Richt and the Dawgs beat the Huskers last year in the Capital One Bowl, 45-31.
Said Richt,"It was a battle. It was a war. We know we're in for quite a challenge, and our guys like that."
  Georgia running back Todd Gurley has battled a bum ankle for most of the season, but given the lay-off before the Gator Bowl, maybe he'll be at full strength for Nebraska.
Said Richt, "Once he sprained that ankle, he hasn't been the same. He's a warrior. He's a tough dude. He has been playing through the pain for his teammates. Hopefully by the time we get to this game, he'll be 100 percent again."
  The Gator Bowl will officially kick off a new year for Georgia.
Said Richt,"It's a new team on the horizon. We want to start off the year with a positive game."
