The Nebraska Huskers fell to Colorado in Scott Frost's coaching debut at Nebraska 33-28 Saturday night.
While the loss wasn't what the fans imagined for game one in Lincoln, the Wood River-native said coaching his first game at Nebraska was an incredible experience.
"For three quarters I was having about as much fun coaching as I had in my life," Frost said. "When you're trying to become a good team, you don't find ways to lose games, especially close ones. You find ways to win."
Though fans and the team see positives from Nebraska's play in the loss the team wants to use the defeat as motivation heading in to its game against Troy on September 15.
"This is no moral victory, by any means," said senior captain Luke Gifford. "We expect to win every game we play and especially in our house. It's unacceptable, we can't have it, we cannot lose here. This is a long season, we have a lot of games left, and in order for this team to keep getting better we have to take away the positives."
The Huskers and Trojans will square off at 11 a.m. Saturday.
