The Big Ten Conference and its television partners announced kickoff times for games in the opening weeks of the 2014 season, including the Huskers’ first two home games, Wednesday afternoon.

The 125th season of Nebraska football will kick off on Saturday, Aug. 30, when the Huskers play host to Florida Atlantic at Memorial Stadium. Game time has been set for 2:30 p.m. CDT with television coverage provided by BTN.

The Huskers stay at home in week two and will take on McNeese State in a game scheduled for an 11 a.m. CDT kickoff. The contest will be televised on ESPNU.

With Wednesday’s announcement, Nebraska has kickoff times set for each of its first seven games of the 2014 campaign. Following the games against Florida Atlantic and McNeese State, Nebraska will play five consecutive prime-time contests.

Nebraska travels to Fresno State on Sept. 13 (9:30 p.m., CBS Sports Network), before returning home for matchups against Miami (Sept. 20, 7 p.m., ABC/ESPN/ESPN2) and Illinois (Sept. 27, 8 p.m., BTN). The prime-time run concludes with pair of road games at Michigan State (Oct. 4, 7 p.m., ABC/ESPN/ESPN2) and Northwestern (Oct. 18, 6:30 p.m., BTN).
