The Huskers will instead kick off their season this weekend.Last week’s cancellation leaves Nebraska with a hole in its schedule. The Huskers only have 11 regular season games on the docket.The school is still looking to fill the void, and AD Bill Moos provided an update on the process.As of now, if Nebraska adds another game, it will either be against a new opponent on Oct. 27, which is the team’s bye week, or against Akron on Dec. 1.Moos said Nebraska is looking at Oct. 27 options and has a “loose end” that could be Akron Dec. 1— Sam McKewon (@swmckewonOWH) September 5, 2018Of course, the Big Ten Championship Game is scheduled for Dec. 1. The Huskers would surely rather play in that contest than against Akron.Nebraska’s first game of the 2018 season and the Scott Frost Era will be this Saturday at home against Colorado. Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. ET.The game will be broadcast on ABC.last_img read more
