Nebraska and Oklahoma will renew one of college football’s traditional matchups before a prime-time national television audience on Nov. 1. The Big 12 Conference has announced that the Huskers’ matchup with No. 4 Oklahoma in Norman will be televised nationally by ESPN, beginning at 7 p.m. CT.
The national telecast against Oklahoma will mark the fifth consecutive week Nebraska has been televised nationally. The Huskers have also been on national television against Missouri (ESPN), Texas Tech (FSN), Iowa State (Versus) and will be this week against Baylor (Versus).
The meeting between Nebraska and Oklahoma is the first regular-season meeting between the schools since a 2005 matchup in Lincoln. The teams also met in the 2006 Big 12 Championship Game at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City.
Game times and television information for Nebraska’s Nov. 8 game against Kansas and Nov. 15 game at Kansas State will be determined six to 12 days in advance. The Huskers’ Nov. 28 game against Colorado will be televised nationally on ABC, beginning at 2:30 p.m. CT.
