Wasn't Enough, But Huskers' Run Game Is Something Worth Remembering

November 16, 2019

LINCOLN, Neb. –– Two coaches have led football teams that have rushed for more than 7 yards per carry on Wisconsin this decade.

Their names are Urban Meyer and Scott Frost.

One of those coaches has been a part of that feat twice. That’s Frost.

As Oregon’s wide receivers coach in 2011, Frost was on the staff as the Ducks went for 8.63 yards per pop in a 45-38 win over the Badgers in the 2012 Rose Bowl. Both teams finished the season 11-2. Meyer’s Buckeyes, on their way to a national championship in 2014, went for 7.
