The moment many Nebraska fans had been anxiously awaiting for months finally came, as HuskerOnline.com confirmed multiple national reports on Saturday that Central Florida's Scott Frost will be Nebraska's new head football coach. The former OR offensive coordinator initially signed on with UCF in the winter of 2015.

With a win in the conference championship game, the Knights are likely going to find themselves in one of the top bowl games this season. In his inaugural season with the team previous year, his squad went 6-6 in the regular season before falling to Arkansas State in the Cure Bowl.
