LINCOLN — Alabama coasted to a win in the BCS national championship game. Georgia took Alabama to the wire in the SEC championship. Nebraska took Georgia to the fourth quarter in the Capital One Bowl. Three postseason games. Three results that point to the Huskers hanging in there when it comes to the sport's elite.
That's an anecdotal way of measuring how close Nebraska might be to competing for what coach Bo Pelini consistently shoots for and what the Crimson Tide now consistently win: A national title.
