The Big 12 Conference and ABC Sports have announced that Nebraska's Oct. 27 game at Texas will be carried on the network. ABC will televise the game on a regional basis with kickoff set for 2:30 p.m.
The Huskers' appearance on the network will be their third ABC contest of the season, after home contests on the network against Nevada
. It will be the Huskers' fifth appearance of the season on ABC or ESPN, as NU's road games at Wake Forest
were carried on ESPN.
This marks the third straight meeting between Nebraska and Texas that has been carried by ABC. Next Saturday's meeting will be the eighth between the schools since the formation of the Big 12, with seven of those games televised by ABC.
Nebraska will also be shown on ABC for its Nov. 23 regular-season finale against Colorado in Boulder. Game times and television information for the Huskers' Nov. 3 game at Kansas and Nov. 10 home game against Kansas State will be announced six to 12 days in advance.
The other Big 12 games selected for Oct. 27 telecast were: Colorado at Texas Tech (11 a.m., ABC) and Kansas at Texas A&M (6 p.m. ESPN2).
