Shortened week doesn't stunt Huskers' preparation for Iowa

By  | 

The Nebraska Football team finished up a short week of practice on Wednesday morning with a helmets only practice in the Hawks Championship Center.

After coming off an emotional and hard-fought victory against Michigan State last Saturday, NU Head Coach Scott Frost was asked about his team's effort in practice this week heading into the regular-season finale at Iowa.

"You know, football is a lot like life in a million ways, and one of the amazing things about football and probably life is when you do things the right way it's more fun." Frost said. "You have more success, you enjoy what you do more. It is unfortunate we had to figure this out as the year went along, but I am really happy where we are from that standpoint. It's easier to coach this team right now because they do everything the right way, and practices are great, on point, people really like the details and little things and that's where we want to be.”

Since the Huskers play on Friday this week, they have a shorter week of practice, and Coach Frost was asked how his team is doing with losing a day of practice.

"These guys did a great job with a short week and preparing." Frost said, "We had a walk-through Sunday night and just tried to introduce the game plan. We had a Tuesday practice on Monday, and a Wednesday practice on Tuesday." Frost said, "We had our walk-through today like a normal Thursday and I think the guys are as ready as they have been for any game."

Friday’s game kicks off at 11 a.m. and will be televised on FOX and carried on the Husker Sports Network.
