Scott Frost has his team ready for the season opener. He emphasized a few things heading into the game.

This could be a very important year for the Scott Frost era at Nebraska. Frost has not a winning season since taking the job in Lincoln, but he simply wants his team to fight no matter what the score. He talked about how much of a tight, close-knit group they have and what he expects from them per Kevin Sjuts of 1011 News.

“We’ve got a confident team, a really close-knit team,” said Frost. “We haven’t hit any adversity yet, but when we do, I want them to keep attacking. Up 40 down 40, up 7 down 7. We need to be on the attack. Our defense is dialed in, they know their calls. They know where they’re supposed to be, they communicate well, and they play hard.”

We’ll see how Nebraska shapes up against Northwestern on Saturday Aug. 27.
