None of Nebraska’s first three football games will be picked up by television. This hasn’t happened since 1989.
That’s the case this year. Home games against Western Michigan, San Jose State and New Mexico State were passed on by ABC/ESPN earlier last month and now Fox Sports and Versus Cable have also passed on the games.
Following last year’s 5-7 season, those three games will be available on pay-per-view.
Also, Lancaster County has set Monday, August 14th, as the court date for former NU player Maurice Purify on allegations he violated his probation and was an inmate of a disorderly house.
