Nebraska's strength of schedule, challenges in the B1G not lost on Scott Frost
The B1G has five teams in the AP Top 25 — all of which are in the top 10.
If that doesn’t speak to the strength of the league this year, what does?
Nebraska coach Scott Frost certainly knows how strong the league is this year. His Cornhuskers have faced two of those top-10 teams and have two more left on the schedule. Nebraska nearly beat No. 8 Michigan last week at home and took No. 10 Michigan State to overtime in Week 4.
Frost was asked about the strength of the B1G in his weekly press conference Monday. Here’s what he had to say:
Asked about the strength of the Big Ten, Frost said it's very good, and, what's more NU is playing all the best teams in it, too.
"Might as well schedule a scrimmage with Penn State Wednesday." #huskers

The Cornhuskers have two of the B1G’s toughest opponents on their remaining schedule. They’ll welcome No. 6 Ohio State and No. 2 Iowa to Memorial Stadium in Week 10 and Week 12, respectively, meaning it won’t get any easier.
Just imagine if No. 7 Penn State was on the schedule, too.
