Head coach Scott Frost of the Nebraska Cornhuskers celebrates a big win against the Michigan State Spartans at Memorial Stadium on Novernber 17, 2018, Nebraska.
On Saturday, Nebraska hosted Penn State in a matchup of teams searching for their first success of the season.
Frost was in desperate need of a win. Although he only took over the program a few years ago, the team’s recent struggles led to questions about his job security.
He’s recruited well over the past three years, but the Huskers haven’t been able to get over the hump. After Saturday’s win, Nebraska sits at 1-2 on the year.
The Huskers have a very manageable schedule of the next four weeks. Illinois, at Iowa, at Purdue and home against Minnesota are the remaining games on the slate.
