Lincoln – Nebraska’s 2017-18 men’s basketball season opener against Eastern Illinois will tip off at 7:30 p.m. as Husker officials announced the start time for the Husker men’s and women’s games for Saturday, Nov. 11.

The start time was previously listed as TBA because that day’s football game at Minnesota had not been set.

The men’s game will be streamed on BTN Plus and carried across the state on the IMG Husker Sports Network and on

It will be the second of two games at Pinnacle Bank Arena that day, as the Husker women will open against SIU-Edwardsville at 3 p.m.  The women’s game will also be streamed on BTN Plus with audio available on
