Nebraska and Iowa will battle for the Heroes Trophy at Memorial Stadium on Friday. 

This year’s contest will mark the 30th consecutive season the Huskers have played on the Friday after Thanksgiving.  It’s the ninth straight year NU has faced the Hawkeyes on Black Friday.  After a two-year break from the Black Friday matchup between the schools in 2020 and 2021, the two teams will resume the tradition in 2022.

This Friday, the Huskers will be looking for their first win over the Hawkeyes since a 2014 victory in Iowa City.

Kickoff is set for 1:30 p.m. The pre-game starts at 8:30 a.m. on News Talk 900 KJSK and will be joined at 1 o’clock on KLIR 101.
