Frost speaks ahead of AAC Championship game

By  | 

Former Nebraska Cornhusker and current head coach at the University of Central Florida Scott Frost had his American Athletic Conference championship game press conference Friday afternoon.

Frost's Knights are 11-0 this season and champions of the east division in the AAC. They will play Memphis for the conference championship game Saturday at 11 a.m.

During Friday's press conference, Frost said his team is looking to finish off the what they started.

"This team wants to finish this off the right way. We know we have a big challenge and a good opponent in front of us, but they're gonna get our best and if we play as well as we can play, then I like our chances," Frost said.

Frost was also asked if any of the rumors about his future with the team have been a distraction for him or his team.

"I'm staying dialed in by doing my job. We've got a great gameplan, we need to execute it," Frost said. "Practice has been great. We can't beat Memphis unless we have 100 percent attention on this game and this opportunity and this challenge, and that's what we've done."

"We've talked all week about making sure we have the juice for one more...our guys are excited to play and they're looking forward to this. I think any chance that this group gets to play together they cherish and they'll be ready," Frost said.

Frost has been linked to the Nebraska head coaching job and Nebraska Athletic Director Bill Moos said that Frost is someone that he's considering for the job. During his press conference after announcing Mike Riley had been fired, Moos said he's "being very sensitive to the fact that [Frost is] still coaching a team and he's having a heck of a run."
