LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska will play a total of five night football games this fall with the Big Ten Network selecting three for prime-time kickoffs.

The BTN night games announced Monday are the Sept. 3 opener against Fresno State in Lincoln at 7 p.m. CDT, the Sept. 24 game at Northwestern at 6:30 p.m. and Nov. 12 against Minnesota in Lincoln at 6:30 p.m.

ESPN previously picked the Oct. 29 game at Wisconsin and Nov. 5 game at Ohio State for night kickoffs.

The five prime-time regular-season games are second-most in program history and the highest number of night games for the Cornhuskers since they joined the Big Ten in 2011.
