Nebraska is preparing to hit the road one last time for the regular season to face the Maryland Terrapins on Saturday. Coach Scott Frost met with the media following Thursday’s practice, sharing a little about what he’s seen from Maryland this season.
"They're athletic, they're talented," Frost said. "I think both teams are desperate for a win. They're well-coached, so just like any other Big Ten team, we're going to have to go play well if we expect to have a chance."
As for what Nebraska needs to do to get the win, Frost said that doesn’t change week-to-week.
"We talk about those things every week and really those things don't change," he said. "Those things are to continue to get better, try to win your individual battle, play as hard as you can, play for the brother to your right and your left. Obviously, there's some other things.
“We're still putting the ball on the ground too much, we're still turning it over too much. We're not creating them well enough on defense. Usually, a game like this weekend, where there's supposed to be rain, those games come down to turnovers. So we have to do well on that category."
And while Nebraska’s 4-6 record isn’t what the team expected going into the season, Frost said the mood, energy and attitudes of the team remains positive.
"They believe in where they are and what they're doing,” Frost said. “Until you get over the hump and get those wins, you can still see guys wondering when it's going to happen instead of expecting it to happen or making it happen.
“This team needs to win one of these close games and get over the hump. They're doing everything right. I just think winning breeds more confidence and confidence breeds more winning."
