Nebraska-North Dakota preview

Nebraska is back in Lincoln on Saturday following a trip to Ireland for the season opener. While the Huskers’ fell to Northwestern, the home opener does provide the potential to turn things around. In fact, Nebraska has won three of its four home openers under coach Scott Frost. Even more, Nebraska has won 34 of its past 36 home openers.

The Huskers now turn their attention to FCS opponent North Dakota. The Fighting Hawks will certainly make things interesting for Nebraska, especially with an offense that is known for a trick or two. North Dakota’s offensive line is also pretty good, and quarterback Tommy Schuster knows how to control the clock. They’ll provide a much-needed test for a Nebraska defense looking to sort some things out after the performance against Northwestern.

For Nebraska, quarterback Casey Thompson impressed in his debut for the Huskers. It wasn’t perfect—the two interceptions were not ideal—but he threw for 355 yards and had a pretty solid first half. Nebraska would like to get its run game going more efficiently this week—something the Husker struggled with against the Wildcats—and there are question marks at key positions. For instance, who steps up for tight end Travis Vokolek if he’s unable to play?

All in all, Nebraska is expected to walk away from this matchup with the win. Could there be some bumps along the way? Sure, but as long as those bumps don’t become craters, Nebraska should be all right.

As for how the Huskers responded this week, Frost said the team was disappointed and frustrated but turned that into motivation through practice. With that said, it’s now on Nebraska to put the words into action.

“I think they know what team they have,” Frost said. “It’s up to us to go out and prove it.”

What else do you need to know? Here’s a recap of what the Huskers had to say this week:
