Who is the home team for this game (I have seen conflicting things on this on the internet)? Nebraska always does better (it seems to me) when they are in their Red home jerseys (they went undefeated at home this year). I want to say Nebraska is the home team because they were in this bowl last year and they were the "road" team. Does it switch off every year between the Big Ten team and the SEC team? Or is it determined by who has the better record/BCS Standing? Anyone know? Truth is, Nebraska will likely lose by a couple touchdowns no matter what color they are wearing...I just think they look way cooler in their home jerseys.
I think it's done by rankings. I checked the odds on the Bowl Games on USAToday.com and they show Georgia in capital letters, which usually means they are considered the home team. Similarly, the higher ranked teams are in caps for all the games.
