The Corn­huskers’ long-an­tic­i­pated sea­son opener un­der new HC Scott Frost was de­layed due to bad weather against Akron. It marked the third straight year a Frost team has faced a post­pone­ment and when Akron opted to head home on Sun­day – pos­si­bly be­cause Terry Bow­den felt he needed the ex­tra day to pre­pare for the Zips’ home opener against Mor­gan State (1-10 in 2017) – the Huskers now will be scram­bling to fill the void with a makeup part­ner on Oc­to­ber 27. Thus, it’s safe to say they’re Jonesing for some Frost-bite in Lin­coln this Satur­day. Mean­while, the Buffs out­yarded bare­foot Colorado State, 596-284, in a 32-point stam­pede last Fri­day night in the Rocky Moun­tain Show­down. Vet­eran QB Steven Mon­tez threw for 338 yards and 4 TDs, dis­cov­er­ing his new fa­vorite target, Laviska Shenault, Jr., who caught 11 balls for 211 yards. How­ever, we are not in­ter­ested in roam­ing with Colorado at this price range as Buffs re­turn only five starters from a 5-win club in 2017.
