Lincoln - The University of Nebraska and University of Iowa athletic departments, in conjunction with the Big Ten Conference, announced Tuesday afternoon that the men's basketball game between Iowa and Nebraska scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 21, has been moved to Saturday, Feb. 23, at 1 p.m. (Central) at the Bob Devaney Sports Center.
The move was prompted by the winter storm expected to hit the upper Midwest on Wednesday and Thursday, and was announced in advance for the safety of student-athletes, fans and game-day personnel. Saturday's date was available for both teams, as Thursday's scheduled matchup was the only game of the week for both Iowa and Nebraska.
Fans who had purchased tickets for the originally scheduled Thursday game can use those tickets for Saturday's contest. As a reminder, all ticket backs note that days and times are subject to change. In addition, tickets remain for Saturday's rescheduled game with prices at $10 and $15 by visiting Huskers.com or can be purchased at the Devaney Center beginning 90 minutes prior to tip-off.
The game was originally scheduled to be on ESPN2, and television information for Saturday's rescheduled game will be announced as soon as it becomes available.
