LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - The Huskers announced on Sunday that they will not participate in a bowl game this season. Nebraska Athletic Director Bill Moos and Head Coach Scott Frost both provided statements on the matter:
“The young men in our football program have shown great discipline this year adhering to necessary safety measures and protocols. I commend them for how they handled the challenges they faced in this unprecedented season.
“I also can’t thank our coaching staff and support staff enough for the leadership, organization and professionalism they have displayed. It has been a true team effort to make this season possible. It has been a grueling 10 months for all involved, but because of the efforts of our football student-athletes, coaches and staff, we were one of only a few Big Ten teams that avoided a pause in team activities during the 2020 season.”
“Our players made great sacrifices this fall to allow us to play eight games and practice without disruption throughout the season. As their head coach I am proud of how they continued to fight and finished the season with a win on Friday. This year has been a long grind and it is time for our guys to have a break, and the opportunity to spend Christmas and the holiday season with their family and friends. We will turn our focus to the 2021 season, and we look forward to our players returning to campus for the spring semester in January.”
