Lest there were any doubts, Nebraska's annual Red-White Spring Game on April 21 will be televised live on The Big Ten Network.

The early start time, as opposed to the usual early-afternoon start, is "primarily to accommodate Big Ten Network," Nebraska athletic director Bill Moos said earlier this month. It also follows the new coaching staff's preference toward earlier practices.

BTN has shown the scrimmage on a tape-delay basis in recent years.

The event sold out last week in a little more than 24 hours.

"I think with the interest and excitement that's surrounding the program right now, people would show up if it was at 5:30 in the morning," Moos said. "But it's important we get the exposure we need throughout our conference footprint and beyond as we start this new chapter of Nebraska football."
