LINCOLN — Nebraska and Iowa are taking the necessary steps to continue the Huskers’ tradition of playing on the Friday after Thanksgiving.
According to NU, Huskers Athletic Director Shawn Eichorst and Hawkeyes Athletic Director Gary Barta will make a request to the Big Ten for at least the 2013 and ’14 games to be played the day after Thanksgiving. They have played their first two games as Big Ten rivals in that slot.
