Nebraska fans should be getting used to staying up late to watch football, and that trend will continue through mid-October. 

The Huskers Oct. 14 home game against No. 10 Ohio State is slated for a 6:30 p.m. kickoff and will be broadcast on Fox Sports 1, school officials announced Monday morning. 

It will be the third straight evening kickoff for the Huskers, who beat Illinois on the road on Friday night and face No. 9 Wisconsin at 7 p.m. Saturday at Memorial Stadium. 

The Huskers are 46-5 overall at Memorial Stadium in night games and have won 20 straight. 

After the two evening home games, NU's only other set kickoff time is 3 p.m. Black Friday at Memorial Stadium against Iowa.
