LINCOLN, Neb. — Nebraska's priority is to heal up during the weeklong wait to find out its bowl destination.

The 22nd-ranked Cornhuskers' first run through the Big Ten took a physical toll. Five starters were injured or re-injured in Friday's 20-7 win over Iowa.

Coach Bo Pelini praised his team's resolve for playing so well under the circumstances.

The Huskers (9-3, 5-3 Big Ten) will find out Dec. 4 where they'll go for a bowl.

Offensive lineman Jeremiah Sirles said he and his teammates are disappointed that they won't be playing for a league title, as they did the last two years in the Big 12, but they are excited about the prospect of winning 10 games for a third straight season.
