Lincoln - The Big Ten Conference announced on Monday that the Nebraska soccer team will make one appearance on the Big Ten Network this upcoming season and six of its remaining eight home games will be streamed live on the Big Ten Digital Network (BTN.com).
Husker fans nationwide will be able to watch NU open Big Ten Conference play at home against Michigan State on the Big Ten Network or BTN2Go.com. The game is scheduled for a 2 p.m. (CT) start in Lincoln on Thursday, Sept. 19. Michigan State prevailed over Nebraska one year ago in East Lansing, Mich., by a 2-1 tally.

The Huskers will make their first appearance on BTN.com this season on Sunday, Sept. 22, when NU hosts a 1 p.m. contest against Denver, who advanced to the Sweet 16 last season.
