Nebraska Wideout Kenny Bell Is Very Upset That The Cornhuskers Have 4 Night Games

Seemingly, Saturday night college football games are a winning combination for all involved. Fans get to tailgate all day and watch their team play during primetime, while players get to play under the lights for a larger television audience. But Nebraska wide receiver Kenny Bell is painting a much different picture.

Bell, upon learning that the Cornhuskers will have four night games this season, took to Twitter to gripe about the situation. He isn't a fan of sitting around and waiting all day to play, and he doesn't believe that the exposure helps with recruiting.

Before today, Nebraska fans already knew that the Cornhuskers would be playing on ABC/ESPN against both Miami (FL) and Michigan State. But this morning, the Big Ten Network announced that they'll also be playing Illinois and Northwestern under the lights. That means that all four night games will be in a row.

To be clear, this is just Bell's opinion. He says that no player likes night games, but that's obviously a bold claim. Regardless, it does make you wonder if game times are yet another issue that the NCAA needs to look at regarding the prioritization of the student-athlete.
