NU Football Game vs. Illinois Moved to Friday, Sept. 20

Nebraska’s football team will host Illinois in a Friday night game this season. 

The Huskers’ game against the Illini will be played on Sept. 20 at 7 p.m., with the game at Memorial Stadium televised nationally on FOX.  The two teams were originally slated to meet on Saturday, Sept. 21. 

This is NU’s second home game selected for prime-time national coverage in the season’s first four weeks.  Earlier this month, NBC announced it will televise Nebraska’s game against Colorado on Saturday, Sept. 7 at 6:30 p.m.
