Black Friday game back on for Nebraska-Iowa
The 2020 season was originally supposed to be the start of a brief hiatus for Nebraska and Iowa from the Black Friday game, which has become somewhat of a new tradition in the B1G. But with the recent schedule release from the league, that date belongs to the Huskers and Hawkeyes again.
Iowa and Nebraska were originally scheduled to play on Saturday, Nov. 28 this season, part of the B1G’s revised eight-game, conference-only regular season slate. On Monday, the B1G made some adjustments to the schedule, which included incorporating some Friday night games.
So, Iowa and Nebraska will play one day earlier than scheduled, taking the field on Black Friday — Nov. 27. There is currently no kickoff time listed, but the game will either air on FOX or FS1, per the B1G’s release.
The Hawkeyes have won the last five meetings against the Huskers, winning the last two games by a field goal in each contest. Last year, Keith Duncan converted on a game-winning kick with 1 second to play to lift Iowa to a 27-24 victory at Memorial Stadium.
This year, the two teams will meet at Kinnick Stadium.
