The Big 12 Conference and ABC Sports have announced that Nebraska’s Oct. 1 contest against Iowa State will be televised on a regional basis by ABC. Kickoff time for the conference opener for both teams will be 2:30 p.m. CDT.
The ABC appearance will mark Nebraska’s second straight game on the network after facing Pitt in a regionally-televised ABC game last Saturday. It also gives Nebraska at least three ABC appearances this season, as the Huskers’ regular-season finale at Colorado on Nov. 26 will be televised nationally by the network.
This will mark the first televised Nebraska-Iowa State game since the 2002 game was carried by ABC. It also represents the first time in series history a Husker-Cyclone contest in Lincoln has been televised by ABC Sports.
The Nebraska-ISU game is one of two Big 12 games that will be televised by ABC on Oct. 1. The Missouri-Texas game will be televised on a split-national basis by ABC at 11 a.m.
The remainder of Nebraska’s kickoff times will be determined six to 12 days in advance.
