LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Four straight losing seasons have humbled the Nebraska Cornhuskers. The last three have come under Scott Frost.
The Huskers are 12-20 and yet to finish higher than fifth in the Big Ten West under Frost. They were 3-5 against a conference-only schedule in the pandemic-shortened 2020 season.
Frost has a new boss in athletic director Trev Alberts. He has pledged to help Frost in any way possible.
But this is unquestionably a pivotal year for a program that brings back a four-year starting quarterback and eight starters on defense.
