The Big Ten Conference just announced the first three weeks of games they will be throwing up on Big Ten Network.

Nebraska, who opens the season at home vs. Arkansas State, got their time.

The Huskers once again get a primetime game on BTN to kick off their season as the Red Wolves will come to Lincoln for a night game on Labor Day Weekend.

This will make two straight evening openers for the Huskers, who opened the season last year under the lights in Memorial Stadium with a 43-10 win over Fresno State.

Arkansas State visits Lincoln for the third time to open the season, losing to Nebraska 38-9 in 2009 and 42-13 in 2012.

With the FS1/ESPN announcements last week, we now know times and/or channels for at least half of Nebraska’s 2017 schedule.
