Scott Frost remains cautious about upcoming college football season

"There's a lot of people with their hands in the cookie jar as far as making the decision," Frost said. "I think we need to be talking about how we get student-athletes back to their campuses without risking infection."

LINCOLN – Scott Frost broke a long silence on Tuesday night, speaking on the Husker Sports Network.

Frost touched on a variety of topics, but top of the list were his thoughts on the upcoming college football season with the uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus pandemic.

He says, student-athlete safety is the top priority.

“There’s a lot of people with their hands in the cookie jar as far as making the decision,” Frost said. “I think we need to be talking about how we get student-athletes back to their campuses without risking infection.”

Frost also knows the impact Husker football has on the economy in Lincoln. He says, this is more than a football game in Nebraska.

“There’s more at stake here. There’s a bunch of businesses around town – I talked to the owners – that probably wouldn’t flourish or maybe be able to make it without home football games in Lincoln this fall. A lot of their revenue comes from that.”

Frost and the Huskers are scheduled to begin the season, as of now, on Sept. 5 against Purdue.
