The time and TV channel for Nebraska’s conference opener has been set.
The Huskers will kick off their 2017 Big Ten season against Rutgers at 3:30 ET on the Big Ten Network from Memorial Stadium on Sept. 23.
Nebraska is in its seventh season as a member of the Big Ten, and this year will be the third time the Huskers have faced Rutgers as conference foes. Nebraska took down the Scarlet Knights in both 2014 and 2015 — Rutgers’ first two seasons in the conference.
Rutgers will enter the game in Lincoln on a 14-game losing streak in Big Ten games. The Scarlet Knights went 0-9 in conference play last season and have not won a Big Ten game since topping Indiana, 55-52, on Oct. 17, 2015.
