Ready to compete
Quarterback Matt Masker may be a walk-on, but that’s not going to stop him from competing for the Huskers. In fact, Masker plans to start one day.
Lessons for the future
Frost and his staff only had a couple of months to recruit for Nebraska, but they made big strides in that time. The lessons over those two months will be vital for the future, too.

Another big win
Nebraska basketball got back on track with a much-needed win Tuesday night. The Huskers defeated Indiana 66-57 at home. Nebraska (21-9, 12-5 in Big Ten) has one final game against Penn State on Sunday before heading to the Big Ten Tournament.
SEE YOU SUNDAY!
