Nebraska's disappointing 2019 regular season came to an end on Friday afternoon. The Huskers lost their last game of the year, losing at home to Iowa on a last-second field goal by the Hawkeyes.

Scott Frost's team entered the season with top 25 expectations. Some analysts picked the Huskers to win the Big Ten West.

Adrian Martinez and Co. did not live up to the hype, as Nebraska finished the year at 5-7, falling short of a bowl game.

It's been a wild ride for Nebraska's seniors, who have missed a bowl game for three straight seasons. Frost had a special message for his outgoing players after the game.

“I just told the seniors I love them and appreciate them,” Frost said postgame. “They’ve been through a lot. Been through a lot for four years, been through a lot this year. I’m grateful to them and we’re going to miss a lot of those guys.”

Nebraska will look to make a Year 3 jump under Frost in 2020. The Huskers believe they are "close" to making one, but they've got a ways to go before jumping back into contention.
