The Huskers lost. There. It’s been said. The opportunity was there to win the game, but mistakes and injuries cost Nebraska their season opener against the hated/neglected Colorado Buffaloes.
In this episode, Hoss and Hooch will review the game, and talk about the many positives that they took away from the true beginning of the Scott Frost Era.
The offensive and defensive lines played really well. Who stood out in the linebacking corps? How about the much-maligned secondary? On the offensive side of the ball, you can’t argue with 329 yards rushing. Credit for that goes to the runners and the offensive line that created holes for them to run through. The wide receivers missed a few opportunities that could have changed the outcome of the game, but still hauled in 19 passes for almost 250 yards.
The big question going forward is Adrian Martinez. How is that knee and how will he be going forward? Only time will tell.
