Kickoff time, TV set for Nebraska-UW game

The Big Ten Conference announced today that Washington’s game at Nebraska on Sept. 17 has been selected for live telecast by ABC and will start at 12:30 p.m. (2:30 p.m. in Nebraska). Since the game is at Nebraska, its TV situation is controlled by the Big Ten.

So that becomes the third UW game this year with a set kickoff time. The Oct. 22 game at Stanford will begin at 5 p.m. (with TV on ABC/ESPN) and the Nov. 12 game at USC will begin at 12:30 p.m. (TV either ABC/ESPN or FSN).

As noted last week, every other game remains undetermined, with the chance that a time and TV situation won’t be set until six or 12 days prior to kickoff, though some could come earlier. Waiting until a week or two to determine kickoff times may not be ideal to some spectators who want to make plans, but it’s an increasing trend as the Pac-12 seeks as much flexibility as possible to get the best games in the best TV time slots each week.

The UW-Nebraska game obviously comes with a ready-made storyline as the rubber match of a series that began with the Cornhuskers’ 56-21 win in Seattle last Sept. 18 and then continued with UW’s 19-7 win in the Holiday Bowl on Dec. 30.

Sept. 17 also looms as one of the real highlight weekends of the year in the Pac-12. Other games that day include Utah at BYU, Stanford at Arizona, Arizona State at Illinois, Syracuse at USC and Texas at UCLA.
