The Nebraska men’s basketball team had a special guest visit Pinnacle Bank Arena before its clash with No. 13 Kansas on Saturday night.
New football coach Scott Frost is in the house, and the Cornhuskers fans went nuts when he was introduced before the game.

Two weeks ago, Nebraska announced Frost as its new coach. He was leaving UCF, which he led to a 12-0 record this season, and returning to the state he grew up in. He played high school football in Nebraska and played quarterback for the Cornhuskers for two seasons in the mid-to-late-1990s.
Now he’s back coaching at his alma mater. Sports Illustrated recently ranked the move as the top hire of 2017, and judging by the ovation he received Saturday night, Nebraska fans appear to agree.
