Despite an 0-5 start to the season Nebraska Coach Scott Frost says there is no doubt the team is getting better. "I think we've finally turned the corner," Frost says.
Frost says he see's the guys are excited that they are moving forward. "Something's changed," Frost says. "It really changed after the Purdue game, changed even more last week. I saw guys bonding together, having fun out there, everybody kind of excited to go to battle. I think getting to that turning point where the team wasn't going to put up with any more of the culture killers and were going to become culture keepers and culture promoters, I see that happening."
Frost and the Huskers are looking for the first win Saturday when they play Northwestern on the road. Kickoff is 11:00 a.m.
Nebraska will take offensive momentum to Evanston after surpassing 500 yards of total offense for a second straight Big Ten game.
Saturday's matchup at Northwestern will mark the Huskers' third road game in four weeks to open Big Ten play. Following the Northwestern contest, Nebraska will play four of its next five games at home at Memorial Stadium.
Northwestern is coming off a big 29-19 victory at No. 20 Michigan State last Saturday. The win improved Northwestern to 2-1 in Big Ten Conference play and 2-3 overall on the season.
