Scott Frost has a horrendous record in 1-score games at Nebraska
Nebraska has struggled to finish off its opponents in close games during the Scott Frost era.
Some of that may be variance, but some of it is likely tied to a propensity to make mistakes — like when the Huskers allowed a game-tying punt return touchdown inside of four minutes vs. the Spartans on Saturday night.
Frost’s overall record at Nebraska is now just 14-23 in 3+ seasons at the helm. But in one-score games? It’s even worse.
The Huskers are now 5-15 under Frost in games that have been decided by one score.
Scott Frost has lost 15 of 20 games decided by one score, per the FS1 broadcast.

All three of Nebraska’s losses this season have been by one score or less. Illinois defeated the Huskers 30-22 back in Week 0 and Oklahoma bested them 23-16 just last weekend.
Nebraska is clinging on to hope of making a bowl game this season for the first time since 2016.
The Huskers host Northwestern at home next week.
