OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) - After a heart-breaking 34-31 loss to Northwestern in overtime, Nebraska football is now 0-6 to start the season for the first time in school history. Head coach Scott Frost said it's wearing on him, but he also feels for his players.
"There's no doubt they're better, they deserved to win that game today," Frost said. "So many ways we could have won that game. I just feel bad for them. This is wearing on me, but mostly I just feel bad for especially the seniors."
Frost said the 99-yard drive the Huskers allowed at the end of regulation had nothing to do with his team's conditioning.
"It's not tired, it's not execution errors," Frost said. "You guys can look for reasons. They made more plays than we did at the end. Our team's in shape, it's not tired. There weren't a lot of busts. They won on routes on a few and we didn't get them covered. We had a 15-yard penalty. There's no other reasons."
