The Big 12 Conference and ABC Sports have announced that it will televise the Oct. 29 game between Nebraska and Oklahoma at Memorial Stadium on a split-national basis with the telecast beginning at 11 a.m.
The game will represent Nebraska’s third appearance in the season’s first eight games on ABC, with a fourth ABC appearance scheduled for Friday, Nov. 26 at Colorado. Nebraska has also had a pair of games televised nationally by TBS, and this week’s game at Missouri is scheduled for a regional telecast on Fox Sports Net. Nebraska’s games against Maine and Baylor were televised by FSN on a pay-per-view basis.
Nebraska-Oklahoma has been a staple of ABC’s college football lineup for many years. This year’s game will mark the 24th Husker-OU game that has been televised by the network. Last year’s matchup in Norman was televised on FSN, but the previous nine meetings between the two schools were all televised by ABC Sports.
Other Big 12 Conference games televised on Oct. 29 will be selected six days in advance of the games. Game times for Nebraska’s games at Kansas on Nov. 5 and at home against Kansas State on Nov. 12 will be determined six to 12 days in advance.
