By Brandon Cavanaugh, 1 month 6 days ago
It may seem blasphemous to suggest that Devine Ozigbo or Stanley Morgan Jr. aren’t the obvious choices to hold the mantle of Nebraska's 2018 offensive MVP.

During a recent radio appearance, Frost commented on how much the defensive back culture has changed. "[The strength coaches talked] about their least favorite group to work with last year [and that] might have been the DBs," Frost said. "They say this year that...

By Brandon Cavanaugh, 1 month 3 weeks ago
Nebraska defensive coordinator Erik Chinander's linebackers, much like their lineman counterparts, are growing into their roles on the Cornhuskers' still-evolving defense. Nebraska is currently in the middle of a developmental period defensively, especially their front seven in Chinander’s 3-4 alignment.
