Trev Alberts knows Nebraska and every player on the Huskers has been through a lot of adversity in 2022. But after the Week 5 win, Alberts knew there was only one person deserving of the game ball.

That person is Mickey Joseph, the head coach who stepped into the void following the firing of Scott Frost:

“First of all, I want to tell you guys how proud I am of you,” said Alberts. “I’m so proud of you. Thank you for how hard you’ve worked, you’re going through a lot, all this adversity… but tonight is about another guy. His first win.”

The rest of Alberts’ sentence was drowned out as the team rallied around Joseph. Take a look:

Not only is it Joseph’s first win as Nebraska’s interim head coach, but it is also his first win in Division I. He previously served as a head coach of NAIA program Langston and posted a 13-7 overall record.

We’ll see how Nebraska responds after getting a win under its belt. Hopefully, Joseph and the Huskers can build some momentum moving forward.
