BTN has announced the 2016 Big Ten conference schedule for prime time and it includes three Nebraska games.

Nebraska will start the season at night against Fresno State on September 3rd. That game will be at 7 pm central. On September 24, Nebraska will meet Northwestern at Evanston at 6:30 pm, and then the November 12th game against Minnesota will start at 6:30 pm.

These night games add to the earlier announced night games against Wisconsin and Ohio State, meaning that there will be some pretty darned lively game threads here at CN for all of these games. Those attending should be sure to plan ahead, especially when it comes to dealing with that one guy you're sure won't make it to the game or if he does will be bringing plenty of trouble with him because he's really shitty at handling his alcohol.
