Nebraska heads to Illinois not only looking to win its Big Ten opener Saturday night but also shed something of an albatross.
The Cornhuskers (2-1) are 0-7 on the road under second-year coach Scott Frost, and in four of those games they were tied or led in the second half.
"We want to come into Illinois and knock that off," linebacker Collin Miller said. "I think it gives you a little motivation. Illinois is a real good team. Night game, so I think we want to go in there and prove we're here, that we can go anywhere and play and come out victorious."
