Scott Frost has to improve Nebraska’s record from 2017, right?
This year marks the fourth anniversary since Nebraska beat Iowa, it was also Bo Pelini’s final game as head coach of the Huskers. Three years under Mike Riley have gone way too slow, but now Frost is here and most people believe he is the long term answer for success. Nebraska has been playing much better in its last five games compared to the first six. I guess you could count the Northwestern game as playing well, but Nebraska choked at the end. Even when Nebraska lost to Ohio State, it was only by five points which is a lot better than the previous few outings against them. Nebraska went on to beat Illinois and Michigan State after that loss, and here we are at Iowa.
By the end of the game on Saturday there was a light dusting of snow, but it snowed pretty much the entire game. Add the wind in there and it was awful conditions, I don’t think the TV broadcast did it justice. This Friday it’s not supposed to snow, but there is a chance of rain and it’s going to be fairly cold again. I don’t know if there’s going to be nearly as much wind on Friday as there was on Saturday, and I also don’t know if the rain will affect the game as much as snow. I don’t think the weather will be as bad as it was on Saturday, but it might affect the offense.
