Kickoff time, broadcast network announced for Nebraska-Iowa game on Black Friday
Everything is set for the Black Friday game between Nebraska and Iowa.
On Monday, both schools announced that the game on Nov. 27 will have a 1 p.m. ET kickoff and will air on FOX. The game is scheduled to be played at Kinnick Stadium after last year’s contest was at Memorial Stadium.
This year’s game was not originally supposed to be scheduled for Black Friday, as there was a two-year break from the two teams meeting on Thanksgiving weekend. However, due to the pandemic and rescheduling, it opened a window for both teams to hit the Black Friday window again in 2020.
Iowa has been a winner in five-straight games against Nebraska. Each of the last two meetings have been decided by Hawkeye field goals late in the game, including last year’s 27-24 victory in Lincoln.
Nebraska still leads the all-time head-to-head series 29-18-3.
Kirk Ferentz is 6-5 against the Huskers in his 22 seasons as the head coach at Iowa. Scott Frost is searching for his first victory in the series.
