Facebook "likes" contest pits UNL vs. U. of Iowa


*I know this has run in UNL Today. I'm editing so it will be considered for Next@Nebraska.

The University of Iowa has challenged UNL to see which university can attract more "likes" on Facebook before the Nebraska/Iowa football game on Nov. 25. Facebook users can "like" UNL at http://facebook.com/unl.edu .

Iowa began the race with fewer likes than UNL but has since surged ahead and now has a lead of several thousand likes.
