LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) Scott Frost's first Nebraska team is in position to finish with one more win than the Mike Riley-led Cornhuskers had a year ago.
That would be no small accomplishment. The Huskers (4-7, 3-5 Big Ten) were the last Power-Five conference team to win this season following a program-worst 0-6 start. To close on a 5-1 run, they must win Friday at Iowa (7-4, 4-4), which has outscored Nebraska 104-44 while winning the last three meetings.
It really has been a tale of two seasons wrapped into one.
