College football Week 0 scores, games: Nebraska blows close game again as Northwestern wins in Ireland
College football is finally here and the first "marquee" game of the year didn't disappoint as Nebraska found a creative and new way to lose a close one.
Now in his fifth season, Scott Frost is just 15-30 after a stunning loss in the Cornhuskers' opener against Northwestern. Nebraska fell apart in the second half after a bizarre decision to try an onside kick while up 28-17 in the third quarter. The attempt failed and sparked a Wildcats comeback that ended in a wild 31-28 result in Ireland. The Huskers had come into the season with higher expectations than in recent years after a staff overhaul and influx of transfer portal talent, but it's clear now that Frost is on thin ice before most teams even start their seasons — he's now 5-21 in one-score games.
Here's how Frost explained his decision to onside kick and a complete roundup of all the Week 0 action.
