Nebraska is right on the cusp of something with Scott Frost at the helm

Say what you want about Nebraska’s record, but they are far from a pushover anymore. The Huskers gave Michigan football everything that they wanted and then some.

The maize and blue had to work for every inch of that win in hostile territory. The Huskers believed they were going to take a big leap in the right direction with a monumental win over the maize and blue.

They never flinched after going down by two scores at the intermission. They stuck with the plan and things began going their way right after halftime. Adrian Martinez and the Cornhusker attack became fearless and had the Michigan defense on their heels. They were getting chunk plays on a group that barely allowed any of them leading up to tonight.

When the outcome was on the line though, they turned into the same old Nebraska that can’t get the job done. Adrian Martinez fumbled the ball and served up a gift that was all that the Michigan defense needed to come away victorious at Memorial stadium.

Brad Hawkins stripped and recovered the football to help put the Wolverines in a winning situation.
