Scott Frost Painted His Masterpiece in Epic Meltdown Loss to Iowa

Nebraska blew yet another sure win, this time against No. 16 Iowa on Friday. The Cornhuskers led 21-6 midway through the third quarter and surrendered 22 unanswered points (including 19 in the fourth quarter) to bumble their way into an embarrassing 28-21 home defeat. It was the perfect encapsulation of Scott Frost‘s time as head coach at Nebraska.

The meltdown truly started early in the fourth quarter as the Huskers held a 21-9 lead. Nebraska faced fourth and eight from their own 27-yard line. The Huskers lined up for a punt, and Iowa’s Joe Evans blocked it, then teammate Kyler Fisher picked up up and ran 14 yards for an easy score. Nebraska 21, Iowa 16 with 14:16 remaining in the game.

Nebraska fumbled the ball away on its next possession but forced a Hawkeyes punt. Unfortunately, it left the Huskers pinned at their own seven-yard line. That didn’t work out too well as on the second play of the drive, quarterback Logan Smothers was pressured in the end zone and threw the ball into the ground. He was called for intentional grounding which awarded Iowa a safety. Nebraska 21, Iowa 18 with 9:56 remaining.

The Hawkeyes then received the ensuing free kick and marched the ball to Nebraska’s 26-yard line before the drive stalled. They settled for a field goal. Nebraska 21, Iowa 21 with 7:21 remaining.

Nebraska went three and out on its next possession and punted it away. Iowa took over on its own 24-yard line and raced down the field with a six-play, 76-yard drive that ended in a two-yard Spencer Petras touchdown run. Iowa 28, Nebraska 21 with 2:58 remaining.
