Huskers To Host Northwestern
Monday, 28 October 2013 10:16
Nebraska returns to Memorial Stadium for the first time in four weeks on Saturday afternoon as the Huskers play host to Northwestern in a Big Ten Legends division matchup. The game is set for a 2:30 p.m. kickoff with television coverage provided by the Big Ten Network.
The Huskers will be looking to bounce back after a 34-23 road loss at Minnesota last Saturday. The loss dropped Nebraska to 5-2 overall and 2-1 in Big Ten Conference play. The setback also dropped Nebraska out of both national polls this week.
Northwestern comes to Lincoln with a 4-4 record, including an 0-4 mark in Big Ten action. After starting the season with four straight wins, the Wildcats have dropped their past four games in conference play, with three of those losses by 10 or fewer points.
Saturday’s game will be the seventh matchup all-time between the schools and the third as Big Ten Conference foes. Nebraska holds a 4-2 edge in the series, including a 2-1 advantage in games played in Lincoln.
