The Nebraska Cornhuskers trip to East Lansing to take on the Michigan State Spartans next Saturday, Sept. 25 will kick off under the lights. The kickoff time was officially been announced today for 6 p.m. CT and the game will air on FS1.
The Huskers will be coming off a road game at No. 3 Oklahoma, while the Spartans will be back home after a road trip to Miami (FL.) to take on the No. 25 Hurricanes. Nebraska is 2-1 following a Week Zero loss to Illinois and wins over FCS Fordham and Mid-American Conference member Buffalo. The Spartans are 2-0 after wins at Northwestern and over FCS Youngstown State.
Nebraska will be making its first trip to Spartan Stadium since 2014, a game that saw the No. 19 Huskers fall to the No. 10 Spartans despite a furious comeback late in the game by Nebraska. Since joining the Big Ten, Nebraska is 4-2 against Michigan State (1-1 in East Lansing) with an average score difference of 7.8 points.
This will mark the first regular season night game for Nebraska since a 34-7 loss at Minnesota Oct. 12, 2019, and the first night game since the 28-21 “Champions Week” victory at Rutgers Dec. 18, 2020. The full slate of Big Ten games for Saturday, Sept. 25 is below.
