Nebraska coach Scott Frost believes his team is uniquely positioned to thrive under the new NIL rules.

When discussing the situation at Thursday’s B1G Media Day, Frost cited both the fact that Nebraska is the lone Power 5 program in-state and they have a national fan base. The Huskers are also a big draw without a professional sports team to compete with in Lincoln.

Frost touched on a variety of other topics as well, including his excitement about the season opener vs. Illinois, the strides his team has made in the offseason, and the addition of AD Trev Alberts.

Here’s a sampling of what Frost had to say:

Nebraska is coming off a 3-5 season in 2020. Nebraska’s Week 1 road contest vs. Illinois is slated for Aug. 28 (1 p.m. EST) and will be televised on FOX.
