Scott Frost's ability to lose one-possession games put into perspective
Nebraska can’t seem to catch a break in close games these days. The Huskers are 0-10 in one possession games since 2021 with the loss to Georgia Southern Saturday.
Nebraska came close to avoiding the upset, leading 42-38 late, but Georgia Southern scored a last minute touchdown to take the 45-42 with just 36 seconds left.
For better or for worse, not all of Nebraska’s one possession losses have been upsets. The Huskers lost to Michigan State by 3, Michigan by 3 and Iowa by 7.
Does a close loss to a good team feel better or worse?
The tough stretch continues for Nebraska fans 😬

Nebraska fans might have more hope now however, as head coach Scott Frost was fired Sunday afternoon. His firing comes just three games into the season and a 1-2 start. Nebraska lost to Northwestern, beat North Dakota and lost to Georgia Southern on Saturday.
Associate head coach Mickey Joseph will lead Nebraska in the meantime. The Huskers take on No. 7 Oklahoma next week.
