While the Scott Frost era at Nebraska didn’t get off to a great start, things have certainly improved for the Cornhuskers.¬†
After their opening game against Akron was cancelled because of¬†weather, the Huskers¬†started the season 0-6, but have since rebounded. Nebraska has won its¬†last two games against the Minnesota Gophers and Bethune-Cookman Wildcats, an FCS school.¬†
Looking for its third consecutive win, Nebraska got off to a hot start Saturday, scoring¬†on its¬†opening drive against the No. 8¬†Ohio State Buckeyes in Columbus.

Then, on the ensuing kickoff,¬†Huskers kicker Caleb Lightbourn¬†whiffed, leading to a defensive offside penalty.¬†
Unfortunately for Lightbourn, this wasn’t his first kicking gaffe.¬†In Nebraska’s 42-28 Week 5 loss at home to Purdue, the junior, who before the season said he wanted “to be the best punter in the Big Ten,” slipped while attempting a punt.
The Buckeyes managed to hold on to beat the Cornhuskers 36-31.
