The Huskers took to the field on Saturday, Sept. 8, 2018 to play their first game of the season against Colorado. Players were welcomed by a stadium full of fans eager to see the start of the Scott Frost era of Husker Football after thunderstorms forced the season-opener against Akron to be cancelled on Sept. 1, 2018. The Huskers fell to the Colorado Buffaloes 28-33.
