Two of Nebraska’s Big Ten Conference road games have been selected for prime-time telecasts by the ESPN family of networks.

The Huskers' matchups at Wisconsin on Oct. 29 and at Ohio State on Nov. 5 will both be televised by either ABC, ESPN or ESPN2. The Wisconsin game will kick off at 6 p.m., while the Huskers' game with the Buckeyes is set for a 7 p.m. kickoff. The network designations for the games will be made closer to game day.

All five regular season Nebraska-Wisconsin games since 2011 have been televised by the ESPN family of networks, including three in prime time. Both meetings between Nebraska and Ohio State in 2011 and 2012 were played in prime time on an ESPN network.

The two Nebraska games were part of seven Big Ten evening games announced by ESPN on Monday. Additional Nebraska games could be selected for prime time telecast by the Big Ten Network. BTN is expected to announce its slate of night games in the near future, with the Nebraska-Fresno State game already rumored to be one of them.

The Huskers are 4-6 all-time vs. Wisconsin, including a 1-4 mark since NU joined the Big Ten. Nebraska has a 1-3 record all-time vs. Ohio State, splitting two matchups since NU joined the conference.
