Coach Scott Frost said he was encouraged by the play of Nebraska's offensive line against Northwestern but is still "not completely satisfied."
"The big thing is we came off the ball better, our pad level better," Frost said during Monday's Michigan game-week press conference.
With new starters Nouredin Nouili and Teddy Prochazka, the line paved the way for a 427-yard rushing night and didn't allow a quarterback sack. Frost said one area needing improvement is perimeter blocking.
Option plays got big yardage against the Wildcats, but Frost rated that department only a six out of ten while noting that quarterback Adrian Martinez has "come a long way" in his ball handling on option plays.
