Well, that was fun. We got to see Scott Frost’s vision finally come together and enjoy a big win over a conference opponent. Now, it is on to a much tougher test in the form of the Michigan Wolverines who arrive as a top 10 team.

For once in a long time, I’m looking forward to the game. I know it won’t be a 56-7 domination like last Saturday, but I’m expecting (not just hoping) to see a competitive Husker team.
