Nebraska vs. Illinois, 9.21

Nebraska outside linebackers coach and special teams coordinator Jovan Dewitt watches game action from the UCF-Pitt game with Huskers head coach Scott Frost on the video screen before the Illinois game on Saturday in Champaign, Illinois.

The Big Ten finalized kickoff time and broadcast details for Nebraska's homecoming game against Northwestern on Oct. 5 at Memorial Stadium. 

An afternoon kickoff was set before the season began, and the game will kick off at 3 p.m. and will be broadcast on Fox. 

That game comes one week after the Huskers host No. 5 Ohio State at 6:30 p.m. on ABC on Saturday. 

The homestand represents the first time NU has played back-to-back home games this season. 

Kickoff times that are still TBD on Nebraska's schedule include Oct. 12 at Minnesota, Oct. 26 vs. Indiana, Nov. 2 at Purdue, Nov. 16 vs. Wisconsin and Nov. 23 at Maryland.
