Iowa’s annual Black Friday contest at Nebraska (Nov. 24) will air on FS1, with a 3 p.m. (CT) start time.

Prime time games for the remainder of the season, beginning with week four, will be announced no later than 12 days prior to the game date, per the new media rights agreements between the Big Ten Conference and its television partners.
