Nebraska is set up for a string of early start times. 

The Huskers will play the next two games in college football's early time slot, as the school announced Monday that Nov. 3's road game at No. 11 Ohio State is slated for an 11 a.m. kickoff and will be broadcast on Fox.

Originally, the Huskers were slated to have a bye week before facing the Buckeyes. A Sept. 1 cancellation of NU's season-opener against Akron, though, led to the makeup game against BCU. 

Nebraska has only two kickoff times left to fill in this fall: November home dates against Illinois (Nov. 10) and Michigan State (Nov. 17). The Huskers then close the season at 11 a.m. Nov. 23 at Iowa on Fox.
