Huskers Turn Attention to Buckeyes

By NU Athletic Communications

Head Coach Mike Riley and members of the Nebraska football team met with members of the media Monday at Memorial Stadium to talk about Saturday's primetime showdown with No. 9 Ohio State. It will be NU's second straight meeting with top-10 team after hosting then No. 9 Wisconsin last week.

Kickoff between Nebraska (3-3) and Ohio State (5-1) at Memorial Stadium is set for 6:30 p.m., with a live national telecast by FS1.

The Huskers dropped their first Big Ten game of the year on Saturday with a loss to Wisconsin and are now 2-1 in the Big Ten. Ohio State is coming off a 62-14 win over Maryland and is now 3-0 in the league.

Nebraska and Ohio State are meeting for the second straight year and the fourth time as Big Ten opponents. The Huskers will meet Ohio State this year and each of the next four years. Big Ten schedules are currently set through 2021.
