Running up the score? Ryan day apologized for late TD, but Scott Frost says it falls on the Huskers
Leading 45-17 late in the fourth quarter of Saturday’s game, Ohio State freshman backup quarterback Jack Miller opted to run into the end zone for a touchdown rather than take a knee and end the game against Nebraska.
The decision could’ve been seen as a sign of poor sportsmanship with the game already well over with in favor of the Buckeyes. Even though Ohio State coach Ryan Day offered an apology, saying he wish he could just take a knee if given the chance to do it over, Husker head coach Scott Frost wasn’t too offended by the play.
Following the game on Saturday, Frost did not address the late touchdown. But he was asked about it again on Monday and had this to say.

Day apologized following Saturday’s game for not taking a knee and going in for the touchdown. He cited his young quarterback and personnel not being ready to take a knee. Day also said he would be reaching out to Frost personally to apologize.
It does not appear that there is any bad blood between these two programs. Frost and Day are known to be friends and their programs led the way to reinstating a fall season for Big Ten football.
