The Nebraska women's basketball team has added a Big Ten Network television appearance early in its conference schedule, and the Huskers will appear three times statewide on Nebraska Educational Television (NET) during Big Ten play in 2020.

Those four additional TV appearances came after the initial Big Ten Network announcement in September of at least five Nebraska women's basketball games being televised during the 2019-20 season.

Nebraska's road game at Michigan State on New Year's Eve was upgraded to a BTN telecast from its original designation as a BTN+ video stream. The Huskers and Spartans will tip off at noon (CT) in East Lansing on Dec. 31.

The Huskers will make their first BTN appearance of the season against Duke as part of the Big Ten/ACC Challenge at Pinnacle Bank Arena on Wednesday, Dec. 4 at 6 p.m. (CT). The recently added BTN game against Michigan State will be Nebraska's second network appearance of the season.

The Big Red will be back on BTN in front of the Pinnacle Bank Arena crowd against Minnesota on Saturday, Jan. 4, at 5 p.m. (CT). The Huskers will also appear on BTN at Maryland (Jan. 16, 7 p.m.), at home against Michigan (Jan. 19, 4 p.m.) and at Wisconsin (Jan. 25, 11 a.m.).

In addition to the BTN appearances, NET will provide a statewide telecast of Nebraska's home game against Wisconsin on Thursday, Jan. 9. Tip-off for the first game between the Huskers and Badgers is set for 7 p.m. NET also will provide the production of the video stream to BTN+ subscribers for the game with the Badgers and Nebraska's other NET telecasts during the season. 

Nebraska's second statewide NET appearance will come Sunday, Feb. 2 against Ohio State. Tip-off between the Big Red and the Buckeyes at Pinnacle Bank Arena is set for 2 p.m. NU's final NET appearance will come on Thursday, Feb. 13, when the Huskers take on Penn State at 7 p.m.

At the end of the Big Ten Conference season, Nebraska's final home game against Illinois (Feb. 22) and regular-season finale on the road at Indiana (Feb. 27) could be selected for BTN telecasts. Those decisions will be made by the network late in the conference season.

All of the early round games in the Big Ten Tournament will be televised live by BTN, leading up to the championship game on Sunday, March 8, which will be televised by ESPN2.

Nebraska Athletic Director Bill Moos, and Illinois Director of Athletics Josh Whitman, in partnership with Irish American Events Limited, announced Monday that the 2021 Nebraska-Illinois game will be played at Aviva Stadium in Dublin, Ireland. The game will open the 2021 season and will be played on Saturday, Aug. 28.

 

The Aer Lingus College Football Classic at the Aviva Stadium will be the second game in a new five-game series of college games in Dublin. The first of those games will be a season-opening matchup between Navy and Notre Dame in 2020.

 

“Playing a game in Ireland provides another way to spread the Nebraska brand, and in this case on an international stage,” Moos said. “We are always looking for new scheduling opportunities and when this was presented, Coach Frost and I decided this would be an experience of a lifetime for the student-athletes in our program.  This will also be a great trip for our fans, and knowing how Husker fans travel it will be great to see Dublin, Ireland turned Red.”

 

Nebraska was originally scheduled to play at Illinois on Nov. 13, 2021. The matchup in Dublin will be Nebraska’s first game outside of the United States since the Huskers took on Kansas State in the 1992 Coca-Cola Bowl in Tokyo, Japan.

 

“We look forward to taking our team to Ireland to kick off the 2021 season against Illinois,” Nebraska Head Coach Scott Frost said. “This will provide great exposure for the Nebraska football program and the Big Ten Conference. Our first priority for the trip will be to play a football game, but it is also going to give our players a chance to visit a part of the world most of them will not have seen.”

 

The Nebraska-Illinois game in Dublin as part of the Aer Lingus Football Classic will bring great excitement to Ireland, according to Prime Minister Leo Varadkar.

 

“It’s great to see new teams getting involved in the Aer Lingus College Football Classic,” Varadkar said. “Tens of thousands of fans are expected to make the journey for each game in the series over the next five years, bringing with them a huge boost for the economy.

 

“Illinois and Nebraska players and fans can look forward to the best of Irish hospitality. The series will showcase Ireland as a location for international events and tournaments and put our world-leading tourism sector front and centre. The 2020 game between Notre Dame and Navy is fast approaching and now sports fans have another great occasion to plan for in 2021.”

 

In addition to taking on Illinois in Ireland in Week Zero, Nebraska also announced the completion of its 2021 non-conference schedule on Monday.

 

The Huskers will take on Southeastern Louisiana of the Football Championship Subdivision on Nov. 13, 2021, in Lincoln. The Huskers will play the Lions at Memorial Stadium on the previously scheduled date of the game at Illinois.  Last week, Nebraska announced that it had moved a previously scheduled 2021 non-conference game with Northern Illinois to the 2027 season.

The Aer Lingus College Football Series will have a very strong Irish-American influence. Not only will there be the usual college football fanfare with lots of fun events celebrating the red, white and blue including marching bands, cheerleaders and tailgating parties, but there will also be a great celebration of the close Irish-American links that are so highly valued. The teams will compete each year for the Keough-Naughton College Football perpetual Trophy, acknowledging the contribution to Irish-American society of Don Keough and Martin Naughton.

The Nebraska football team struggled to get anything going in Minneapolis, as No. 25 Minnesota improved to 6-0 with a 34-7 win over the Huskers on Saturday night at TCF Bank Stadium.

Nebraska slipped to 4-3 on the season and 2-2 in the Big Ten with the setback. The Huskers put together a 14-play, 80-yard drive early in the fourth quarter to get on the board after Minnesota built a 34-0 lead at the end of three quarters.

The Huskers went to the locker room trailing 14-0 at halftime, in sophomore quarterback Noah Vedral's first career start. For the game, Vedral completed 14-of-23 passes for 135 yards, while also rushing for a team-high 49 yards. Vedral, who started in place of sophomore Adrian Martinez, came out of the game after leading Nebraska on its fourth-quarter scoring drive.

Minnesota controlled the first half, out-gaining Nebraska 257-159. Despite trailing 7-0 at the end of the first quarter, the Huskers accounted for 124 first-quarter yards on 22 plays. Minnesota had 90 yards on just 11 first-quarter plays. In the second quarter, the Huskers managed just 35 total yards on 12 plays, while the Gophers rolled up 167 yards on 19 plays in the quarter. Minnesota needed just one completion for eight yards in the second quarter.

The Golden Gophers put the game out of reach with a trio of third-quarter touchdowns. After pounding the ball on the ground for 220 rushing yards in the first half, the Gophers opened the second-half with a play-action pass from Tanner Morgan to Tyler Johnson for a 45-yard completion to the NU 18. Four plays later, the Gophers were in the end zone on the second of three Mohamed Ibrahim touchdown runs to go up 21-0 just 2:19 into the second half.

Morgan completed 8-of-13 passes for 128 yards with one touchdown for the game. Johnson hauled in five receptions for 109 to lead the Gophers.

Later in the quarter, Minnesota took advantage of a short field to go 45 yards on nine plays in 5:16 capped by a Rodney Smith one-yard touchdown run to go up 28-0 with 3:16 left in the third.

But the Gophers were not done yet. After forcing a quick three-and-out by the Husker offense, Minnesota started at the NU 46, and Morgan completed his second 45-yard pass to Johnson of the quarter on the first play of the Gophers' two-play scoring drive, which was capped by Ibrahim's final touchdown from one-yard out with 1:41 left in the period.

Minnesota finished with 450 yards of total offense, including 322 rushing yards on 49 carries. Smith led the Gophers with 139 yards on 18 carries, while Shannon Brooks added 99 yards on 13 totes. Ibrahim finished with 84 yards on 15 attempts. Nebraska managed 299 yards of total offense, including 151 rushing yards.

The Huskers, who played turnover-free football for the second straight game, were led defensively by senior linebacker Mohamed Barry's 11 tackles, who became the 12th Husker in history with 10 or more games with double-figure tackles in his career. Collin Miller and Marquel Dismuke both added career highs with 10 stops.

Junior wide receiver JD Spielman hauled in three receptions for 59 yards on the night. Freshman wide receiver/running back Wan'Dale Robinson added a pair of receptions. Kade Warner added three receptions for 38 yards, while tight end Jack Stoll pitched in four catches for 18 yards. 

Brody Belt stepped up for the Huskers in the backfield late in the game with four carries for 29 yards, while Dedrick Mills managed 28 yards on nine carries, including a two-yard touchdown run to account for Nebraska's only score of the night.

Nebraska will enjoy a bye next week before returning to Big Ten home action against Indiana at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln on Saturday, Oct. 26.
