LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A 33-0 Holiday Bowl rout of Arizona is providing further evidence that the Cornhuskers are on the verge of becoming major players on the national scene again.

Coach Bo Pelini says that if the Huskers carry over this season's finish to 2010, they'll be a force to be reckoned with in college football.

Pelini has gone 9-4 and 10-4 in his first two seasons. Had it not been for one second being put back on the clock in the Big 12 championship game, allowing Texas to kick the game-winning field goal, the Huskers would have won their first league title since 1999.

Nebraska rebounded from that disappointment to turn in the most dominating performance of the bowl season, throttling Arizona on Wednesday night in San Diego.

    It's looking to be cold for Game 1 of the World Series, but at least the Red Sox and Dodgers will probably avoid the rain.
