Rutgers and Nebraska will have to wait just a little bit longer for their Friday Big Ten crossover matchup after today’s schedule change.
Originally scheduled for a 4 p.m. ET kickoff in New Jersey, the Scarlet Knights and Huskers will instead get underway at 7:30 p.m. ET, the Big Ten announced this afternoon.
The alteration occurs hours after Purdue-Indiana was called off due to COVID-19 concerns. The Boilermakers and Hoosiers were slated to kick off at 7:30 p.m. ET before the game got canceled.
Additionally, a major snowstorm is expected in the Garden State on Wednesday into Thursday, which could complicate travel plans for Nebraska. Hence, the later kickoff makes sense.

After a loss to Minnesota last weekend, Nebraska will look to end a disappointing 2020 season on a high note. A win over Rutgers would move the Huskers to 3-5 on the year.
Meanwhile, the Scarlet Knights are currently 3-5 after beating Maryland in overtime on Saturday. They have the opportunity to beat Nebraska and win four conference games in a single season for the first time since joining the Big Ten.
