Nebraska plays on a most coveted Friday night game against Rutgers in Piscataway this week. The Huskers rarely play games on Friday but these outings seem to becoming more and more the norm in college football.

If the demand is there, might as well put a product out for people to pay to see.

The downside is that many of us believe that this hallowed night should be reserved for high school games.

The benefit, you can go and do other things on Saturday.
