Nebraska completes a three-game homes tand to open the season on Saturday afternoon, when the Huskers play host to Washington at Memorial Stadium. The game will be televised by ABC, with kickoff set for 2:30 p.m.
The Huskers enter the game with a 2-0 record after a 42-29 victory over Fresno State last Saturday in Lincoln.
Nebraska trailed 20-14 early in the second half, but rallied with an explosive offensive and special teams effort, scoring four touchdowns in the game’s final 23 minutes.
The Huskers’ 2-0 start leaves them ranked 10th in both major national polls entering the matchup with Washington.
Washington will bring a 2-0 record to Lincoln following a 40-32 victory over Hawaii last Saturday afternoon in Seattle. The Huskies opened the year with a 30-27 victory over defending FCS national champion Eastern Washington a week earlier.
Washington is receiving votes in both national polls this week following its 2-0 start.
The meeting between the two schools is the third in the last 12 months, after the Huskers won a regular-season matchup at Washington last season, and the Huskies defeated Nebraska in the 2010 Holiday Bowl.
