David McGee

Rather than have a separate early morning thread, we're just gonna start out with the actual game thread.

Date/Time: October 24, 2015, 11:00 a.m. CDT

Location: Memorial Stadium, Lincoln NE, Capacity: 86,047

Series Record: The all-time series stands at 6-2 in favor of Nebraska. Three of the four matchups between Nebraska and Northwestern since the Huskers joined the Big Ten (2011) have been decided by three or fewer points. Both of the games in Lincoln have been decided by three points. The first meeting between these teams was in 1902 on Lincoln's Antelope Field. It resulted in a 12-0 Nebraska win, which capped off an undefeated 10-0 season. That team had only 19 players on the roster and did not allow opponents to score a single POINT the entire season (including their opening exhibition match against Lincoln High School).
