LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - Following Nebraska’s overtime loss to Wisconsin on Saturday night, Matt Rhule and the Huskers are still searching for one more win to gain bowl eligibility. They’ll have one more shot against Kirk Ferentz and the Iowa Hawkeyes on Black Friday this week.

Nebraska (5-6, 3-5) comes into the rivalry game on a three game losing streak after falling to Michigan State (20-17), Maryland (13-10), and Wisconsin (24-17).

Iowa (9-2, 6-2) meanwhile comes to Lincoln riding high, clinching the Big Ten West in their victory over Illinois on Saturday. The Hawkeyes, ranked #20 in the latest AP Poll, have won six of their last seven games. Their two losses this year have come to Penn State (31-0) and Minnesota (12-10).

The Huskers will also host Senior Day on Friday. According to Rhule, 24 players will walk on Senior Day, though some of those players still might return for another year in 2024.

The Huskers and Hawkeyes are scheduled for an 11 a.m. kickoff on Friday, Nov. 24. The game will be televised on 10/11. 10/11′s coverage will begin at 10 a.m. with an hour long pregame special hosted by Sports Director Kevin Sjuts and Chase Matteson.
