Ndamukong Suh

Ndamukong Suh throws the bones before kickoff in Memorial Stadium.

Scott Frost has been adamant about getting Husker legends back around the program, and his first game attracted one of the best players in program history.

Ndamukong Suh was on the sidelines pregame, throwing the bones for fans. Earlier in the day he tweeted out a six-second video of himself in the Nebraska weight room room saying, "I'm baaaack."

Suh, now with the Los Angeles Rams, donated $2.6 million to NU in 2010 and has the strength and conditioning center named in his honor.

But his relationship with the program appeared to cool in recent years, to the point that he listed his alma mater as "Grant High School" during NFL pregame introductions last season.

It's possible this is the first time Suh has returned to watch a game in Memorial Stadium since 2013.

Suh seemed happy to be back. Moments after the weather delay went into effect, Suh was walking across the field, throwing the bones as lightning struck. The crowd was chanting his name.
