Nebraska-Missouri to Be an ESPN Thursday Night Game

Husker News and Notes:

Husker TV Schedule:

The 2009 Nebraska-Missouri game has been selected by ESPN as a Thursday night game, the Huskers first since 2003.

Nebraska will face Mizzou in an 8 p.m. contest Oct. 8th in Columbia as part of the network’s Thursday Night Football coverage. The scheduling of the game works nicely for NU, which has a bye week preceding the game. The Cornhuskers will have 12 days to prepare for the Tigers, instead of 14.

NU last appeared on Thursday night in 2003 with a win over Southern Mississippi. In 2006, then-athletic director Steve Pederson turned down an opportunity to play a game at Houston on Thursday night.
