The early start time is presumably to accommodate a live TV broadcast. There has not yet been an announcement of which channel will carry the game, however.
With the start of the Frost era, this will be the most-anticipated spring game at Nebraska in a while. The Huskers drew a crowd of 78,312 to the 2017 spring game. The program record for attendance at a Red-White game was 80,149 in 2008.
