The Scott Frost era officially began on Saturday with the Nebraska football program holding its annual Spring Game inside of Memorial Stadium. Fans showed up in full force for the game despite the fact that it was a rainy day in Lincoln to get a first-look at the former UCF coach, who lifted the Knights to national prominence with an undefeated 2017 campaign.
A whopping 86,818 Cornhuskers fans were in attendance.
Check out some photos from the Spring Game below:
