The Nebraska football team has won three of its last four and will try to keep the momentum going this Saturday when the Big Red hosts Michigan State. 

"Just like I wasn't going to measure the success of this season based on win-loss record," said Frost.
"I won't measure the end of the season based on the last two. We're going to fight our tails off and try to win them against a couple good teams. But I think everybody in the building, everybody in this program can see where it's going."

Not only will Saturday's game against the Spartans be the home finale for the Huskers, but all the last home game ever for the 2018 senior class. 

"It's a great group," Frost said. "I feel bad this season hasn't gone better for them. But at the same time, these are going to be some of the guys that the foundation for what we're going to do going forward is built on."

"This season is everything to me," said senior receiver Stanley Morgan, Jr. "I mean, it's not the best season ever but this is great."

19 seniors will come out of the tunnel for the final time against Michigan State and over half of them have played for three head coaches during their Husker career but have stuck it out til the end. 

"The transition from coach to coach, there can be some hardships if the guys that are older don't go for it," said senior lineman Jerald Foster. "We took it upon ourselves to not be that problem. We took it upon ourselves to be the solution."

"Last time going out there as a Husker, it's going to be emotional," said senior defensive end Freedom Akinmoladun. "I just can't wait to go out there and play with my brothers out there for the last time.

Kickoff Saturday is set for 11 a.m. on FOX.
