Another week, another crushing loss for Scott Frost.

Nebraska was in position to secure a huge road win at Michigan State on Saturday night. The Huskers led the Spartans by a touchdown with just a couple of minutes to play. However, Nebraska was unable to move the ball and lock up the victory.

Michigan State returned a punt for a touchdown with roughly minutes to go, forcing overtime. The Huskers then threw an interception on their opening possession in overtime. The Spartans locked up the win with a field goal.

Nebraska dropped to 2-3 on the season. It's been several years of agony for Frost and his program.

"I don't know how Scott Frost will sleep this week. For a program that invented ways to lose the past 3+ years, that might've been the worst of all," Dirk Chatelain tweeted.

"Nebraska should have used more analysts to coach their special teams. They just gave up a game-tying punt return to Michigan State. Such a glaring weakness under Scott Frost, and it keeps undercutting them at the biggest moments," Pete Thamel added.

"Another brutal loss for Nebraska, which just can't win close games under Scott Frost. Effort is there, but Huskers always seem to make a few too many mistakes," Adam Rittenberg tweeted.

"Nebraska is 5-15 under Scott Frost in one-possession games. The 15 losses since 1998 are the most in the FBS," Chris Fallica added.

Yikes.

Maybe some of it is bad luck, but a lot of it is just execution. And, under Scott Frost, the Huskers have failed to execute when it matters most.
