Bragging rights on the line

 Excuse me if I’m a bit reluctant to feel good about Nebraska’s bowl game in Santa Clara with UCLA. I was on the sidelines for both the 2012 and the 2013 matchups, the first at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena and the second in Lincoln, and I witnessed up close and personal the Bruins’ mastery in taking the upper hand with their superior athleticism.
Besides that, it’s once again going to be for family bragging rights with daughter-in-law Mikala, who is from Castaic (just north of Los Angeles) and who is a big UCLA fan.
I try my best to look past all that. I try to “forgive” her when she dresses grandson Easton in UCLA attire, biting my lip each and every time. Yes, my Huskers may be 5-7 with one of the most disappointing seasons in recent history, but they’re still my team.
