Nebraska vs. Illinois Game Time, Channel, Spread, Announcers

Week 4 of the college football season rolled on last night with a Thursday night battle between Houston and Tulane. The Green Wave walked out with a 38-31 win in what was a nice appetizer for college football fans ahead of the weekend’s coming action.

The weekend of games rolls on with a few pivotal conference match-ups. One of the most-hyped programs in the country heading into the season, Nebraska, faces off against Illinois.

The Huskers sat insider the top-25 before the season kicked off and lasted just a few weeks on the list before a loss to Colorado. Both teams enter the game with 2-1 records, but Scott Frost and company are heavy favorites.

Here’s everything you need to know about the match-up.

Game Time: 8:00 p.m. ET

Channel: BTN

Spread: Nebraska -13

Over/Under: 61.5

Announcers:Kevin Kugler, Matt Millen

Nebraska bounced back well last weekend following the team’s overtime loss to Colorado in Week 2. The Huskers took down Northern Illinois by a final score of 44-8 in a dominant performance.

Illinois on the other hand, dropped its last game, falling to Eastern Michigan by a field goal. It was a disastrous loss, but the Fighting Illini have a chance to bounce back at home against Nebraska.

Something will have to give when these two take the field on Saturday night.
