The Black Friday tradition continues. Nebraska and Iowa are scheduled to face off on Friday, Nov. 27 in Iowa City.
Nebraska and the Big Ten Conference shared the news on Monday, also noting that the kickoff time will be announced at a later date. The game will be televised by FOX or FS1.
Athletic Director Bill Moos previously said he hoped the matchup would take place on that Friday, and said he was “feeling good” about the prospects. He also noted that there would be a number of games on Fridays. The Big Ten has currently shared five, which includes Nebraska’s Black Friday matchup. Nebraska is not scheduled to play any other Friday dates.
The Huskers and Hawkeyes have met on Black Friday every year since Nebraska joined the Big Ten, making the 2020 matchup the 10th straight season the two have faced off on the day after Thanksgiving.
It’s also the 31st straight season Nebraska has played on Black Friday, dating back to 1990. Prior to facing Iowa, Nebraska previously met Oklahoma on Black Friday from 1990–95 and then Colorado from 1996–2010.
Monday’s announcement was part of a number of updates from the Big Ten on kickoff times and TV announcements for the conference.
