TV details set for Nebraska-Purdue game

Purdue quarterback David Blough runs in for a touchdown against Nebraska in the first quarter of the two teams' 2015 matchup, a Boilermaker victory.

Nebraska's Oct. 22 home game against Purdue will be televised by ABC, the Husker athletic department announced on Saturday.

For markets not carrying the game on ABC, the game will be shown on ESPN2.

Kickoff was previously set for 2:30 p.m.

The Huskers will put a 6-0 record on the line at Memorial Stadium against the team that handed them perhaps their most unexpected loss of the 2015 season.

Historically, Nebraska is 2-2 against Purdue. That includes a 2-1 mark since the Huskers joined the Big Ten, plus a 28-0 loss to the Boilermakers back in 1958.
