Nebraska basketball coach Fred Hoiberg acknowledges the crowd during NU's Opening Night festivities at Pinnacle Bank Arena in 2019. The Huskers will hold their second Opening Night on Friday.

Steven M. Sipple and Parker Gabriel discuss four takeaways from the Nebraska football team's media availability Tuesday.

Fred Hoiberg and Amy Williams will peel back the curtains on their Nebraska basketball teams on Oct. 1 for their annual opening night event.

Opening Night with Husker Hoops at Pinnacle Bank Arena will feature introductions of both teams, comments from Hoiberg and Williams and a scrimmage with the men's team.

Chicago-based rapper G Herbo will be the musical guest for the event, performing a post-scrimmage concert. Two years ago, Rick Ross took the mic.

“We are excited to welcome our fans back to Pinnacle Bank Arena this season, and Opening Night gives them a chance to see us scrimmage and to see the personalities of our players,” Hoiberg said in a statement. “For our players, it is their first opportunity to play in front of our great fans and that should make for a fun evening.”

The event, which begins at 7 p.m., is free to the public.
