The Nebraska football program slogged through the first season of the Scott Frost era, winning just four games and spending most of the season among the nation’s worst teams. Speaking with Jim Rome on The Jim Rome Show Monday, Frost expressed optimism about the immediate future.

In fact, Frost believes the pieces are in place for the ‘Huskers to make a second-year leap similar to the one UCF made with him at the helm in 2017.

Scott Frost sees the same progress in Nebraska as he did at UCF from The Jim Rome Show on Vimeo.

Of course, that year’s UCF team went undefeated and announced itself as the unofficial national champion. So, it’s kind of a big deal that Frost believes his Nebraska program can make that type of leap in 2019.
