Nebraska head coach Scott Frost admitted after Saturday’s game against Penn State that the 30-23 win was the big not only for himself but the team and the entire state.

That might seem a bit dramatic, but not if you know Nebraska football. There had to be some real depressed Husker fans after the team’s 0-2 start. Getting a win against sputtering Penn State had to feel really good for Frost and Husker fans everywhere.

That game is now a distant memory. On Saturday, Nebraska will face an Illinois squad that also picked up its first win of the season in Week 4.

As the Huskers get ready to host the Illini, Frost held his regularly scheduled Monday press conference.

In 2019, Nebraska just eked out a 42-38 win in Champagne. The Huskers did so with a late rally.

It appears that the Huskers are young just about everywhere. That includes the offensive line.

One other young facet of Nebraska is new starting quarterback Luke McCaffrey. He made his first start against Penn State and helped the Huskers get out to a 23-0 lead against Penn State. It appears the job is now McCaffrey’s.

Here’s what else Frost had to say.
