Frost says Huskers ready to hit the road

LINCOLN – Scott Frost is no stranger to the “hospitality” of Boulder, Colorado.

After numerous trips as a player and coach, Frost has a handle on what awaits the Huskers at Folsom Field on Saturday. Put the rivalry aside – this was about the Huskers’ week of preparation.

“I just want focus,” Frost said of his expectations of a team heading into a road game. “I think we practiced that way all week, so I think our team’s excited to play. They understand how big of a test this is – this is a tough place to play and has been for a long time.”

It’s the Huskers’ first trip to the Rockies in a decade, and the first since both teams left the Big 12 conference. The rivals won’t let fans’ bad blood get in the way of greater goals, and Frost diminished the idea this game is part of some revenge tour.

Nebraska currently sits as a 3.5-point favorite heading into Saturday. Channel 8 will have full coverage from Boulder as well as previews, highlights, reaction and more as the Big Red looks to improve to 2-0.
