|AUBURN vs. NEBRASKA|
Nebraska jumped out of the gates early and took it to Auburn, but a few costly turnovers kept the Tigers in the game. The Huskers' fake punt backfired, and although they had chances to tie the score or take the lead, they weren't able to convert them into points. In the second half, Nebraska's offense couldn't get it going. Brandon Jackson not being healthy was definitely a factor in the loss. Marlon Lucky stepped up, but wasn't enough to edge out Auburn. -- Mel Kiper|

Nebraska won this contest everywhere but where it matters most -- on the scoreboard. A third-quarter field goal broke open an even game, and the Tigers were able to hang on for the win. Auburn is the first SEC team to win the Cotton Bowl in four years. Story
