Head Coach Scott Frost and Nebraska football players met with members of the media Sunday afternoon to preview the upcoming Week Zero game against Big Ten rival Northwestern at the Aer Lingus Classic in Ireland on Saturday, Aug. 27. Kickoff between the Huskers and Wildcats at Aviva Stadium in Dublin is set for 11:30 a.m. (CT) Nebraska will be making just its second football trip in history to a foreign country, joining a 1992 journey to Tokyo, Japan. Nebraska is playing a Week Zero game for the second straight season and Frost can’t afford a repeat of what happened a year ago. The Cornhuskers’ loss at Illinois set the tone for a 3-9 season that ended with Frost clinging to his job after taking a $1 million pay cut and firing four offensive assistants. While the Huskers are excited to open the season overseas and experience the Irish culture, they are also focused on getting the 2022 season off to a winning start on the field.
