It appears the Huskers win at Rutgers Friday will be their final game of the 2020 season. The University released a statement Sunday saying the team would not be accepting a bowl invitation. The decision was made after a player vote. Following Friday’s win over the Scarlet Knights, Husker head coach Scott Frost hinted there might not be bowl appearance. He said both he, and the team, are in need a break. With Friday’s win, the Huskers close the 2020 season with a 3-and-5 record, their fourth straight losing season.
