Lincoln – Two more of Nebraska’s non-conference games will be showcased across the nation, as the Big Ten Conference and its television partners announced kickoff times for the first three weeks of the season on Monday.
Nebraska’s game against Oregon at Memorial Stadium on Saturday, Sept. 17, will be carried nationally by ABC with kickoff set for 2:30 p.m. The Huskers’ game against Wyoming on Saturday, Sept. 10, will kick off at 11 a.m., and will be televised by ESPN2.
