Nebraska officials are reportedly making a "strong, strong push" for Central Florida head coach Scott Frost as a replacement if coach Mike Riley is fired.

ESPN's Adam Rittenberg said Monday on "The Bottom Line" show that the Huskers have contacted UCF to make their “intentions known" they are interested in Frost.

Frost, who played quarterback at Nebraska from 1995-97, is 9-0 in his second season at UCF, and many Nebraska fans would give him the job tomorrow if it were up to them. The Cornhuskers are 4-6 overall this season, and lost Saturday 54-21 to Minnesota,

“Scott Frost has got to move,” Rittenberg said (via Landof10.com). “I think the question is, will he come back home to Nebraska? Now, I have been told that Nebraska has made some type of offer or interest in Scott Frost known. So people there at UCF I have connections with are aware that Nebraska is making a strong, strong push for Scott Frost.
