LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Nebraska's offense has generated more than 450 yards in seven straight games, something not even the powerhouse Tom Osborne teams of the 1990s did.
If the Cornhuskers put up the same numbers Saturday against Michigan State's stout defense, it will be another sign first-year coach Scott Frost's up-tempo spread option is a force in the Big Ten just as it was when he was at Central Florida in the American Athletic Conference.
"I've said this a bunch, but this team could've gone a hundred different directions when we were struggling early on and getting bad breaks and losing games," Frost said. "It couldn't have started any worse and this team held together and got better through that, and now we're dangerous. We are a team that can beat just about anybody in this league. We have to play well to have a chance, but we're a dangerous team."
