How much do the people of Nebraska love Scott Frost? Well, so much that the Huskers head coach is getting a whole day named in his honor.

That’s right, according to KOLN-TV, Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts has declared Saturday, Sept. 1 as “Scott Frost Day” throughout the state, honoring the new head coach as the Cornhuskers open the 2018 football season.

Ricketts sent out a press release regarding the proclamation.

“Nebraskans across the state were excited to welcome Coach Frost back to the Good Life when he decided to take the Nebraska football head coach job,” Governor Rickets said. “Coach Frost knows the importance of Nebraska football to the state. His coaching style and ability to get the very best out of his players will help make Nebraska football great again. Good luck to Coach Frost and the Huskers on their upcoming season, and Go Big Red!”

That’s quite the hero’s welcome for Frost.

Nebraska will open the 2018 season and kick off a new era of Husker football on Saturday, Sept. 1 — now also known as “Scott Frost Day” — against Akron at Memorial Stadium.
