When the season begins, the Cornhuskers’ attack will be led by the former Texas quarterback, according to Frost.

The starting quarterback for the Cornhuskers attack has been announced by Nebraska coach Scott Frost with less than two weeks till the start of the 2022 college football season.

In an interview with the Huskers Radio Network, Frost said that former Texas quarterback Casey Thompson will “be the guy” in charge of the offense when Nebraska opens the season against Northwestern on August 27 in Dublin, Ireland.

After four seasons at Texas, Thompson, a former four-star recruit, entered the transfer portal during the offseason. Frost thinks Thompson, who still has two years of eligibility left, has the potential to not only improve the offense for the Cornhuskers but also turn the program’s fortunes.

Nebraska had a 3-9 overall record and a 1-8 record in Big Ten play last season. Nevertheless, Nebraska lost by a single digit in each of its nine games. Frost hasn’t finished a season with a winning percentage higher than.500 since his hiring in 2018.

Along with Thompson, Mark Whipple joined Nebraska as the team’s new offensive coordinator during the offseason.

For the Longhorns last season, Thompson started 10 games and threw for 2,113 yards, 24 touchdowns, and 9 interceptions. He had a passer rating of 154.7 and completed 63.2 percent of his throws.
