College football Week 0 scores, games: Nebraska blows close game again as Northwestern wins in Ireland

·1 min read

College football is finally here and the first "marquee" game of the year didn't disappoint as Nebraska found a creative and new way to lose a close one.

Now in his fifth season, Scott Frost is just 15-30 after a stunning loss in the Cornhuskers' opener against Northwestern. Nebraska fell apart in the second half after a bizarre decision to try an onside kick while up 28-17 in the third quarter. The attempt failed and sparked a Wildcats comeback that ended in a wild 31-28 result in Ireland. The Huskers had come into the season with higher expectations than in recent years after a staff overhaul and influx of transfer portal talent, but it's clear now that Frost is on thin ice before most teams even start their seasons — he's now 5-21 in one-score games.

Here's how Frost explained his decision to onside kick and a complete roundup of all the Week 0 action.
