Huskers move on from Colorado loss, sights set on Troy

By  | 

LINCOLN, Neb. — The Nebraska Football team is moving on from Saturday's loss to Colorado and has its sights set on Troy this Saturday.

Kickoff is set for 11 a.m.

On Monday, Scott Frost and several Husker players talked about the Colorado game, Blackshirts and how they're preparing for Troy.

He also talked about the injury to freshman quarterback Adrian Martinez

“We got about as good of news as we could’ve gotten on Adrian [Martinez], so he’s going to be day-to-day. We’re going to get guys reps, get Andrew [Bunch] as many reps as we can, get Matt [Masker] reps, and potentially somebody else. We want to go into the game with at least three guys,” Frost said.

The coaching staff also handed out Blackshirts for the first time on Monday.

"We want the Blackshirt to mean something. I told the guys in meeting this morning, we had a longer meeting this morning and talked about a lot of things, one of the things I told them was I was proud of the effort, the physicality," he said. "We had a lot of guys on defense that played well enough to earn Blackshirts, we’re just not going to give them all out at once. I think we had about seven guys that we thought their work over time deserved them. Several more deserved it from the game, but I expect them to get it soon.”

Frost also talked about the Husker's next opponent, Troy.

“There a good team. They had a rough game, Boise had a lot of big plays against them, otherwise it looked like a really evenly matched game. They’re well-coached, they wouldn’t have had the year they had last year without that. I think they’re a little like us playing a bunch of new players and they are young. They are very multiple on defense, you’re never quite sure what they’re going to be in and where they’re going to be. I think they’re kind of similar to us on offense they try to go fast and do some creative things, so it’s going to be a challenge for us. Our team has to rally around each other and rally around whoever is playing quarterback.”
