The 2020 season was an up-and-down one for the Nebraska football program.
The Huskers led the charge for the Big Ten to play football this fall. The Big Ten initially decided to postpone the season until 2021, but thanks in part to public pressure from Nebraska and Ohio State, eventually changed its mind.
Nebraska wasn’t rewarded on the field for their off-the-field efforts, though. The Huskers were 2-5 on the season heading into Friday night’s game at Rutgers.
Scott Frost’s team ended the regular season on a high note, though. Nebraska beat Rutgers, 28-21, to finish the regular season with a win.
Following the game, the Huskers’ football program released a message for the fan base.
“To the best fans in the country, thank you for sticking with us. One state. One team. One heartbeat,” the Huskers tweeted on Friday night.

Nebraska’s season might not be over.
Huskers head coach Scott Frost revealed following the win at Rutgers that a bowl game is a possibility. However, Frost will have to speak with his players first and confirm that they’re interested in playing in one.
“It would do a lot for our team…We’re gonna talk about it,” Frost said on Big Ten Network Friday night.
