The Huskers also learned kickoff times for Big Ten Conference games against Northwestern (Oct. 5) and Iowa (Nov. 29). The homecoming contest against Northwestern will start at either 2:30 or 3 p.m., with the network determination to be made at a later date. Nebraska’s traditional Black Friday game against Iowa is set for a 1:30 p.m. kickoff with coverage on BTN. Fox chose Texas Tech at Texas for its 11 a.m. game that day and Washington State at Washington for the 3 p.m. slot.
