LINCOLN, Neb. (Press Release) - An evening kickoff in Dublin and a national stage for a traditional rivalry highlight seven Nebraska kickoff times announced by the Big Ten Conference on Thursday.

Following the opener, Nebraska returns to Lincoln for a four-game homestand, including three non-conference matchups.
