One of many things Scott Frost wants to improve in year 1 is the Big Red secondary. A goal with its share of challenges giving the Huskers youth at the position after losing starters Chris Jones and Joshua Kalu.

Nebraska is in desperate need of developing a stronger defense against the passing game, after surrendering over 200 yards per–game through the air last season.

The Husker coaching staff is preaching more inner–team competition to help build more depth for the 2018 campaign.

"We knew that once we got here and looked at the roster was our depth in the secondary," said head coach Scott Frost. " I think we've done a good job in the off–season trying to put the pieces together to prove that. Really excited about some of the kids that are here, there's a couple true freshmen, well several true freshmen, a transfer and a junior college transfer. So if those guys are what we think they are I think it will help us a lot there, but I'm excited for the competition at every position. We're going to create situations to compete, and practice is going to be a competition, but a friendly competition."

Nebraska will open up 2018 at home against Akron Sep. 1st, 7:00 pm Kick–off on KFXL.
