Big 12 North Showdown to be Televised on ABC
The Big 12 Conference announced on Monday morning that Nebraska's Oct. 30 matchup with Missouri in Lincoln will be televised on ABC, with kickoff set for 2:30 p.m. (CT). The NU-Mizzou game will be shown on a regional basis, but many areas not receiving the contest on their ABC affiliate will be able to watch the game on ESPN.
Nebraska and Missouri will be meeting on ABC or ESPN for the fifth consecutive season. The Husker-Tiger game in 2006 was televised by ABC, while each of the past three meetings have been national ESPN telecasts. This year's game will mark the first day game between the teams since 2006.
With the Huskers' matchup against Missouri slated for ABC, Nebraska will have at least five appearances on the network this season. Nebraska's games against Washington and Texas have been shown on ABC, and this week's matchup at Oklahoma State will be shown on a regional basis, beginning at 2:30 p.m. CT. NU's regular-season finale against Colorado on Friday, Nov. 26 will be televised nationally on ABC with a 2:30 p.m. start.
Game times and television information for the Huskers' games against Iowa State (Nov. 6), Kansas (Nov. 13) and Texas A&M (Nov. 20) will be announced six to 12 days prior to kickoff.
