Urban Meyer on Nebraska: 'That's a two-win team people don't want to play'
Saturday’s outcome may not have been the one Nebraska was hoping for, but at least one person was impressed with the performance of Scott Frost’s team.
The Cornhuskers pushed the Buckeyes to the limit in the 36-31 Ohio State win. In fact, Nebraska carried a 21-16 lead into halftime before Ohio State’s offense woke up. When it did wake up, Ohio State outscored Nebraska 20-10 in the second half for the win.
While some Ohio State fans will feel unhappy with a close call to an unranked team with two wins, head coach Urban Meyer was more complimentary. He praised the Cornhuskers as a team that no one wants to play right now. Meyer said he saw good players in a good scheme that will only get better moving forward.
Rivals.com writer Robin Washut shared Meyer’s comments:
Ohio State’s Urban Meyer on Nebraska:
“I get that that was a two-win team, but that’s a two-win team that people don’t want to play right now. On videotape, I wasn’t expecting to see what I saw: very good players, very good scheme, and guys who are going to get very good."

Nebraska fans are probably ready for more results instead of moral victories. Still, competing to the end against the No. 10 team in the country has to be a good sign moving forward.
