Jacksonville, Fla. Following the Nebraska football team’s final practice in preparation of Wednesday’s Gator Bowl with the No. 23 Georgia Bulldogs, members of the team visited the Wolfson Children’s Hospital in downtown Jacksonville.
The visit provided an opportunity for the children in the hospital to meet role models and was an ideal way for the players from both Nebraska and Georgia to lift the spirits of local hospitalized children.
Wolfson Children’s Hospital is also the beneficiary of the Gator Bowl VyStar 5K Run that is scheduled at 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 31, at the Jacksonville Landing.
The Huskers will go through a final walkthrough tomorrow before meeting the Bulldogs at 11 a.m. (CT) on Wednesday, Jan. 1, at EverBank Field. The game is scheduled for a national-broadcast on ESPN2.
