There are certain moments in sports which mean more than just the game. For Scott Frost, this week’s Minnesota vs. Nebraska Big Ten contest qualifies, as it brings to mind a cherished memory of his father.
Scott Frost’s dad, Larry, played wide receiver for the Huskers back in the late ’60s. Against Minnesota in 1969, he caught two touchdown passes in a Nebraska win.
A heartfelt memory for Scott. A memory which came to mind this week as his team prepares for the Golden Gophers on Saturday.
“Dad talked to me about every game he played…There’s actually a picture in my grandpa’s office, at his shop up at the dairy farm just between here and Malcolm, of about five still-frames of my dad’s touchdown against Minnesota” Scott said today. “I’ve been seeing that since I was able to walk.”

Certainly a special memory for Scott and his entire family.
