Want to watch the Nebraska football team as it faces Illinois? Here’s what you need to watch the Huskers.
The 2021 Nebraska football season is finally getting started! Scott Frost and the Huskers are on the road and ready to start things off with a game against Bret Bielema and the Illinois Fighting Illini.
As Nebraska gets set to play in the first game of its season, many of the headlines over the past couple weeks have been surrounding the NCAA’s investigation into the Huskers. But now, with actual football set to be played, hopefully Nebraska football fans will be able to sit back and enjoy some actual football.
There are some interesting stakes in this game for Frost. The former star quarterback for the Huskers has been far from great as a head coach and there’s plenty of pressure on him to succeed. Meanwhile, his counterpart over at Illinois is getting a fresh start.
Here’s everything you need to watch the Huskers take on Illinois.

This is a game that the Huskers must win.
It’s mandatory that Frost and company get this season started off on the right foot. Otherwise things could get out of hand for Nebraska’s head coach in a hurry.
There’s an abundance of pressure on Frost and this coaching staff given that they’ve only won a total of 12 games over the past three seasons. As Frost enters into his fourth season as the head coach of the Huskers, Nebraska football fans are expecting wins. He’ll have to deliver sooner rather than later if he hopes to continue coaching in Lincoln.
