OU-Nebraska on ESPN

NORMAN, Okla. -- ESPN has picked up the Oklahoma-Nebraska game on Nov. 1. Kickoff time for the contest has been announced earlier for 7 p.m.

It will be the second appearance of the season for Oklahoma on ESPN. The Sooners' victory at Washington also aired on the cable network.

Both Oklahoma and Nebraska are coming off victories. The Sooner rolled over Kansas State at Manhattan, 58-35, while Nebraska staved off a pesky Baylor team at Lincoln, 32-20.

This game will mark the first meeting between Bob Stoops and fellow Youngstown, Ohio native Bo Pelini, who is in his first season as the Cornhusker helm. Pelini was on Oklahoma's staff as co-defensive coordinator under Stoops in 2004.

Festivities surrounding the OU-NU game will include a reunion of the 1971 Game of the Century. Coaches and players from both teams will be on hand for a Friday evening function then will be introduced at the game.
