Huskers To Face Gophers at 11am, Deal Signed To Play Vols and Ducks

LINCOLN -- The Big Ten Conference announced on Monday that Nebraska’s Oct. 26 football game at Minnesota will kick off at 11 a.m. CT. The game will be televised by either ESPN or ESPN2 with the network determination to be made following this week’s games.  The 11 a.m. CT kick will be Nebraska’s fourth in its first seven games and third straight to open Big Ten play.  Nebraska and Tennessee officials announced on Monday that the dates of the future games between the schools have been changed to accommodate a requested schedule change from Tennessee. The games originally scheduled between the Huskers and Tennessee in 2016 and 2017 have been pushed back a decade. Nebraska and the Vols will now meet in the 2026 and 2027 seasons. The Huskers will play host to Tennessee on Sept. 12, 2026, and travel to Knoxville and Neyland Stadium on Sept. 11, 2027. The games will be the first-ever regular-season matchups between the schools. Nebraska won the only two previous matchups in the series, defeating Tennessee in the 1998 Orange Bowl and the 2000 Fiesta Bowl.  The Huskers and Ducks will square off in Lincoln on Sept. 17, 2016. Nebraska will travel to Oregon’s Autzen Stadium for the second game in the series on Sept. 9, 2017. The matchups will be the first between the schools since Oregon traveled to Lincoln in 1985 and 1986, with Nebraska winning both of those contests.
