Nebraska-Iowa Game Officially on Black Friday

When Nebraska travels east to take on Big Ten West foe Iowa, it will be on the traditional Black Friday date.

Nebraska and Iowa have met on the day after Thanksgiving every year since the Huskers joined the Big Ten. This will be the 31st annual Black Friday game for Nebraska, dating back to 1990.

The Big Ten made the date of the game official Monday while announcing week one game times across the league and a host of other schedule updates.

The Big Ten season begins with Illinois at Wisconsin on Friday October 23. That game will kickoff at 7 p.m. Central. Other announced Friday games are Minnesota at Maryland October 30, Iowa at Minnesota November 13, and Purdue at Minnesota November 20.
