Scott Frost

Nebraska quarterback Scott Frost dives into the end zone as Tennessee's Gerald Griffin (18) and Dean Grant give chase in the third quarter of NU's Orange Bowl rout in 1998.

Scott Frost once gave a famous speech at the Orange Bowl.

Now, he'll be enshrined among the greats to play in the game.

Frost is one of five inductees to the Orange Bowl Hall of Fame this year, NU announced Wednesday morning.

Frost quarterbacked Nebraska to Orange Bowl wins after the 1996 and 1997 seasons, the latter of which doubled as the capper to a 13-0 season and the final game of Tom Osborne's coaching career.

Frost, the first-year Husker head coach, is the 10th NU player to be inducted and is part of a 2018 class that also includes retired coaches Bob Stoops (Oklahoma) and Frank Beamer (Virginia Tech), running back Shaun Alexander (Alabama) and defensive end Derrick Alexander (Florida State).
