LINCOLN (KMTV) — With the season opener less than two weeks away, Nebraska head coach Scott Frost is focused on having his Huskers ready for Ohio State.

On Tuesday, Frost discussed the possibility of fake crowd noise being allowed inside stadiums since no fans will be allowed in the stands.

"I think it's annoying to have fake crowd noise in your ear all the time," Frost said. The head Husker said the last he heard family members will be allowed in stadiums.

"They're going to be awfully lonely in our giant stadium if they're the only ones in there," Frost said.

Frost also discussed wide receiver Omar Manning when he was asked if he thinks the JUCO transfer will be available against the Buckeyes.

"I hope so," said Frost. "I think that's still a work in progress right now. When Omar's been out there, he's looked really good. He's been dealing with some health things that's kept him in and out. We need him out there more consistently if he's going to help us the way we expect him to and hope that he will."

Frost said Wan'Dale Robinson and Alante Brown have also been a little 'nicked up'.

The quarterback competition continues between junior Adrian Martinez & redshirt freshman Luke McCaffrey and there is no pecking order completely set as of yet. Frost was asked if McCaffrey is being considered to play snaps at any other position.

"He's a quarterback," Frost said. "I want to make that clear. Right now our offense moves exceptionally well when he's playing quarterback. He finds a way to make a lot of plays work. If he's one of the best players to have on the field and he's not playing quarterback then we'll certainly look for opportunities to make sure that our best players are out there."

The Huskers head to Columbus on October 24.
