The 24th-ranked Nebraska softball team will appear on the Big Ten Network (BTN) three times this season, the network announced this month.
Nebraska's April 1 game at Minnesota will kick off the network's 27-game softball schedule. BTN will also televise the Huskers' series finale at Iowa on April 15 and Nebraska's home matchup with Michigan State on April 29. Both of those game times have been changed to accommodate television, with the Iowa contest now starting at 3 p.m. and the matchup with the Spartans set for 1 p.m.
Every game that is available on BTN is also available on BTN2Go, a 24/7 live feed of all BTN television programming. Full online access of BTN2Go is only available to subscribers of participating cable, satellite or telco providers. The online service is available at no additional cost to subscribers who already receive BTN as part of their channel lineup. For more information, visit http://www.BTN2go.com.
BTN, which has been assigned television rights from the Big Ten Conference of all 12 Big Ten schools, could also show the Huskers once more during the regular season, as the network holds a wildcard slot on Saturday, May 12. The Huskers wrap up the regular season that day against Wisconsin at Bowlin Stadium.
NET will televise Nebraska's in-state matchup with Creighton on April 11 at Bowlin Stadium. That game will only be televised in the state of Nebraska, but fans around the country can catch the game live with a subscription to BTN All-Access.
Nebraska may have select away contests selected for a Student U Production, where university students studying broadcasting produce the entire broadcast - including announcers - to gain hands-on learning experience while proving TV-quality broadcasts for games that otherwise would not be televised. A complete Student U schedule will be available at a later date, but all broadcasts are streamed live on BTN All-Access, and some broadcasts may air on a tape-delayed basis on BTN.
HuskersNSide will also carry a live video stream of 10 games from Bowlin Stadium this season.
