No one really gave the Nebraska Cornhuskers a chance heading into their matchup with the Oklahoma Sooners. Although they’re on the wrong side of the scoreboard right now, they have actually been able to compete with the No. 3 team in the country.
The Cornhuskers had a chance to get within of four points late in the third quarter, but Kelen Meyer’s extra point attempt was blocked and returned the other way by the Sooners for a two-point conversion.
Shortly after giving up that two-point conversion, the Cornhuskers gave up a 12-play, 65-yard touchdown drive to the Sooners. It was just a disappointing sequence for Scott Frost’s squad.
Once the Sooners increased their lead to 23-9, FOX’s broadcast showed Frost on Nebraska’s sideline with a look of disgust on his face. That brief moment immediately went viral on social media.
Here’s the photo of Frost that college football fans are talking about:

Nebraska responded with an impressive touchdown drive that took just a little over a minute off the clock. However, it might be too little, too late for the Cornhuskers.
If the Cornhuskers end up losing this game, they’ll look back at all the mistakes they made on special teams. It’s fair to say they left at least seven points on the board because of their inconsistent kicking game.Internet Explorer Channel Network
