Aer Lingus College Football Classic shares guide to American football for Irish fans ahead of Nebraska-Northwestern
The Aer Lingus College Football Classic is trying to get Irish sports fans ready for Saturday’s game between Nebraska and Northwestern. The game’s Twitter account shared a 78-second video guide to American football for its Irish audience.

The video brings up tailgating parties and touches on some of football’s core basics. If there’s a defensive turnover returned for a touchdown or a team decides to go for 2 instead of kicking a PAT, though, the Irish audience might be a bit lost. The local fans would also need some help with the rules if the game goes to overtime.
Even across the pond, FOX managed to be a Big Noon Saturday game. Kickoff between the Cornhuskers and Wildcats is set for 12:30 p.m. ET on Saturday from Aviva Stadium in Dublin. The Huskers are favored in the contest.
