LINCOLN, Neb. | Low demand has led to the cancellation of a charter flight that had been lined up to take Nebraska fans to Jacksonville for the Gator Bowl.
The Lincoln Journal Star reports that Pennsylvania-based Collegiate Athletics canceled the Southwest Airlines 137-seat charter that was to fly travelers who booked through Executive Travel of Lincoln, AAA Nebraska and Allied Tour & Travel of Norfolk.
Executive Travel’s Steve Glenn said it’s the first time in 27 years that he’s had a charter to a bowl game cancelled.
Nebraska is playing 23rd-ranked Georgia for the second straight year in a bowl game. Last year Georgia beat the Huskers 45-31 in the Capital One Bowl.
