What Nebraska head coach Scott Frost said during his weekly presser
Scott Frost spoke with media Monday afternoon and addressed a range of issues, from the Cornhuskers squashed bid to add a non-conference game last Saturday, to the intricacies of practicing when live games have been so scarce.
Frost said the team organized a Halloween movie night in lieu of their cancelled game against Wisconsin, and claimed most of his squad had voted or planned to in the United State’s presidential election.
He also admitted to a silver lining to the team’s cancelled game in that he got to take his kids trick-or-treating, a time they would not have been able otherwise to share.
Frost and the Nebraska are traveling this week to Evanston, Illinois, on the shores of Lake Michigan, to play a 2-0 Northwestern team playing as well as any squad has in the 15-year tenure of Pat Fitzgerald.
The Cornhuskers are 0-1 after taking a 52-17 beating from conference bully Ohio State in Columbus. Frost is 9-16 at Nebraska in his third season, 6-13 in the Big Ten. Nebraska and its diehard fans are anxious to get their program, mired in a 20-year slump with several good but not great seasons mixed in, back amongst college football’s elite programs.

Frost on how to determine how intense practices are: "We're making it up as we go along. I'm being honest. You've got to have a feel for your team." #Huskers— Sam McKewon (@swmckewonOWH) November 2, 2020

Scott Frost said Nebraska is ready to turn a "big-time corner." Says that based on seeing practice and little things coming together. Needs to play games – and win games – to underline that.— Sam McKewon (@swmckewonOWH) November 2, 2020
"They just want to play, and we're just trying to let them play."
