Insight Bowl: Old Rival Oklahoma vs New Rival Iowa

Oklahoma - do we still love them as much as we used to?
Oklahoma - do we still love them as much as we used to?

Oh, I should have created game threads for the earlier bowls, but better late than never, right?

Besides, I figure this is the one most Husker fans are interested in because it features our future and our past facing off against each other.

New rival Iowa vs old rival Oklahoma - I have to wonder - who are you rooting for?

I don't expect it to be much of a game, especially since Iowa is without Marcus Coker, but at the same time, you have to wonder how enthused Oklahoma is to have fallen to the Insight Bowl.

As for my rooting - for me Oklahoma ceased to be our rival at the formation of the Big 12. We didn't play yearly, and Oklahoma made Texas their rival of choice. The old Big Eight gave us some great games, but those days were gone.

Still.... rooting for Iowa just because they're in the Big Ten? I don't think I can do that. I haven't hidden my hate for Iowa, but I do hope they play well in this game if for no other reason than it's a Friday night and like usual, I have nothing better to do.
