CHAMPAIGN, Ill –– After Nebraska’s collapse at Colorado, head coach Scott Frost said the Huskers’ margin for error was “pretty small right now.”

They made it microscopic at Illinois on Saturday, fumbling four times and losing all four. The Illini had a 15-yard edge in average starting field position.
