Nebraska's first road test of the 2005 season will be played under the lights, as Baylor officials announced on Monday that the Oct. 15 game in Waco will kick off at 6:05 p.m.
The game was not selected to be televised by the Big 12's television partners. Games selected as part of the conference's television package for Oct. 15 were Kansas State
at Texas Tech
(11 a.m., ABC); Colorado
(2:30 p.m., ABC) and Oklahoma
in Kansas City (6 p.m., TBS).
The night contest will be Nebraska's third of the season, after the Huskers played at night in their first two victories of the year against Maine and Wake Forest. It will also mark the second night game in three trips to Waco for Nebraska. The Huskers and Baylor also played a night game in Waco in 1997.
Kickoff times for the remainder of Nebraska's games will be announced six to 12 days in advance.
