The Big 12 Conference and ABC Sports announced on Monday that Nebraska's Oct. 7 game at Iowa State will be televised on a regional basis with kickoff set for 7 p.m. at ISU's Jack Trice Stadium.
The game will mark the fourth consecutive night contest for the Huskers, following a road game at USC

has had one other stretch in school history with four straight night games, opening the 2002 season with four evening contests.
The ABC appearance also marks the second straight season and the fourth time in the past seven years that the Nebraska-Iowa State game will be televised by the network. The ABC game guarantees Nebraska at least three appearances on the network this season, as Nebraska's Sept. 16 game at USC was televised nationally and the Nov. 24 game against Colorado will also be shown by ABC to a national audience.
Nebraska opens Big 12 Conference play this week with a 6 p.m. game against Kansas that will be carried nationally on FSN. Game times for the remainder of Nebraska's games will be announced six to 12 days in advance.
Other Big 12 games selected for television on Oct. 7 include Oklahoma-Texas (2:30 p.m., ABC), Texas A&M at Kansas (11 a.m., FSN) and Missouri at Texas Tech (6 p.m., TBS).
