WATCH: Nebraska Coach Scott Frost on Game Day, Quarterbacks and Area Codes

August 30, 2018

Nebraska coach Scott Frost addressed the media one last time before Saturday's season opener against Akron.

Frost addressed a number of topics, including what he expects from his team against Akron, Andrew Bunch stepping up in the backup quarterback role and placing the area code on the front of the players' helmets. Frost also addressed the number of young players that will play on Saturday, saying it'll be a balance between having fun and locking in when they need to be serious.

With that said, Frost expects his team to take it all in on Saturday and hopes they get excited by their first Tunnel Walk.

"If HuskerVision is doing their job, I'm going to be jacked up so I don't know how you can tell a guy running out there for the first time not to be," Frost said.

Watch the full video of his question-and-answer session below.
