Nebraska held it's third practice in Orlando on Saturday, in preparation for their upcoming matchup with Georgia on Tuesday in the Capital One Bowl.

ORLANDO, FL - Nebraska held it's third practice in Orlando on Saturday, in preparation for their upcoming matchup with Georgia on Tuesday in the Capital One Bowl.

"It was a good practice. We've had a good week so far," Nebraska head coach Bo Pelini said. "We'll finish it up tomorrow and then get ready to play a football game. The attention to detail has been good. The kids have been practicing hard and with really good tempo. It's getting close now."

Tuesday's contest will be the last for 29 total seniors - Pelini's first full recruiting class. On Saturday, the head coach was asked if emotions were higher this week with their careers winding down.

"It's a good group," Pelini said. "Not only what they did for this football program, but who they are as people and how they've represented the program. It's hard to see them go, but after this game, it becomes time to turn the page and head to the next chapter of the program. We're looking forward to the opportunity we have coming up (against Georgia)."

Game time is set for 1 p.m. ET and the game can be seen on ABC.
