It's possible to make it, and I've connected at FRA in less than 45 minutes, but be open to spending the night at the Frankfurt Airport Sheraton. Everything has to go right to make a USA flight in 45 minutes. You'll need to clear passport control (usually quick) and USA security (should also be quick that late in the day - it's probably the last USA flight of the day.) Hope you will get your SFO boarding pass in NCE. You'll need the boarding pass before security, I think, and if you don't have it, getting it in FRA at a transfer desk will delay you.
