By Brandon Cavanaugh, 1 month 3 days ago
Not that long ago, to be a wide receiver at Nebraska was to be a glorified blocking dummy. That element of the game is still crucial to the Cornhuskers’ offensive success, but much as the quarterback position has dynamically changed in Lincoln, so have the wideouts’ roles. Thanks to the introduction of Scott Frost’s offense, wide receivers, and tight ends, are ratcheting up...

By Brandon Cavanaugh, 1 month 6 days ago
Not only has the quarterback position seen a revamp since Scott Frost took over the Nebraska football program, but the style of backfield residents has made a dramatic shift as well. Fullbacks are a thing of the past, perhaps one of the most controversial changes among the fan base. That’s not to say the physical element of the Huskers’ running game is gone, though.

Nebraska Football: 5 Newcomers to Watch for the Cornhuskers

By Brandon Cavanaugh, 1 month 1 week ago
Nebraska lost two of the most significant pieces of its 2018 offense in 1,000-yard rusher Devine Ozigbo and the school’s first 1,000-yard receiver, Stanley Morgan Jr. However, after signing a class heavy on skill players, Scott Frost may very well be able to get that output in other ways.   While defensive recruiting additions weren’t ideal, positive steps were taken to...
