Nebraska football is entering a crucial 2020 season under Scott Frost as they look to end their bowl drought under the head coach.

There aren’t many college football programs that have a richer history than that of the Nebraska Cornhuskers.

Nebraska is one of just eight programs that has won 900 games (902), while owning claimed five national championships and nine unclaimed national championships. However, their poor play the past three seasons make it easy to forget that rich history.

The Huskers have missed out on a bowl game each of the past three seasons, including the past two years under their former quarterback turned head coach Scott Frost who is just 9-15 so far as the head coach at his alma mater.

While Frost hasn’t produced many wins thus far, the roster is finally starting to turn into the pieces he recruited to Lincoln as the team continues to move further away from the disastrous three-year Mike Riley era.

The one accomplishment Riley had at Nebraska that Frost has failed to do is produce a winning season and bowl bid, which the Huskers will be looking to do for the first time since Riley guided the program to a 9-4 campaign in 2016.

With a conference-only schedule, the Huskers hope to prove to the nation and Big Ten, that they can compete and are on the rise.

Here’s a look at what may be in store for Big Red in 2020.
