Scott Frost’s reasoning for wanting the make-up game played on Nebraska’s schedule bye week is exactly why he’s a great coach

-Frost said Thursday that his hope is to get a 12th game to make up for Nebraska’s canceled game against Akron to be played on Nebraska’s scheduled bye week (Oct. 27) because he wants his guys to plan on playing in the B1G Championship on Dec. 1. Think about how much that helps the psyche of the team as the season goes on

-They know it’s (likely) going to be a season where you’re on the fringe of bowl-eligibility because of a tough schedule and new concepts with new coaching staff, but you could accept mediocrity by saying we’ll play on Dec. 1 and that just lets the team know that they don’t expect them to contend in the conference
