Lincoln – Nebraska will make its first Super Tuesday appearance since 2011 this upcoming season, as ESPN and the Big Ten Conference announced its Super Tuesday schedule Wednesday afternoon.
The Huskers, who return all five starters from a team that went 19-13 in 2013-14 including All-Big Ten performers Shavon Shields and Terran Petteway, will make a pair of Super Tuesday appearances this season on ESPN. The nine-game schedule is traditionally one of ESPN’s highest-rated basketball series during the season.
Nebraska will travel to Ann Arbor to take on defending Big Ten regular-season champion Michigan on Tuesday, Jan. 27, at 6 p.m. (central). On Tuesday, Feb. 10, Pinnacle Bank Arena will host its first Super Tuesday game when the Huskers welcome Final Four participant Wisconsin to town. Tip-off is set for 8 p.m. (central).
The only Big Ten programs making more Super Tuesday appearances in 2014-15 are Wisconsin (four) and Michigan (three). Nebraska’s only previous Super Tuesday appearance since joining the Big Ten came in 2011, when the Huskers played Wisconsin in their Big Ten debut at the Devaney Center.
Today’s games were the first announced regular-season Big Ten Conference games for the 2014-15 season. The full conference schedule will be announced later this summer.
