Things started off great for Nebraska on Saturday at Ohio State as they marched right down the field and scored to go up 7-0 over the Buckeyes.
Unfortunately, for the Cornhuskers, not much else went right as the Buckeyes ended up walking away with a 52-17 blowout victory.
But the final score could have been a little bit closer had OSU freshman quarterback Jack Miller taken a knee, rather than scoring a touchdown.
Following the game, Ohio State head coach Ryan Day apologized to Nebraska head coach Scott Frost for not taking a knee.
“I feel bad about that,” Day said. “I had a younger quarterback in the game, and I didn’t feel like we had the personnel to take the knee, and I probably should have done that. So I just want to publicly apologize to them, to [Nebraska coach] Scott [Frost].”

Day is apologizing for scoring touchdowns? Soft.
