Nebraska football isn't looking at week after week of games starting at noon and earlier like in years past.

The Big Ten Conference released the kickoff times for several weeks with Nebraska in a good position. The Huskers open the season Aug. 27 in Ireland against Northwestern with an 11:30 a.m. CT start. That's 5:30 p.m. in Dublin with the game being televised on FOX.

FOX will also carry the Oklahoma game Sept. 17. That is slated for FOX's prime slot of 11 a.m. with Big Noon Kickoff coming to Lincoln.

The home opener Sept. 3 against North Dakota will kick off at 2:30 p.m.

Nebraska will get its first of a few night games Sept 10. The game against Georgia Southern is slated for a 6:30 p.m. kickoff on FS1.
