Posted By: Sports

The Pac-12 Conference announced on Thursday that Nebraska's Sept. 8 game at UCLA will be televised in prime time. The matchup from the Rose Bowl will kick off at 4:30 p.m. PT (6:30 p.m. CT) and will be shown nationally on FOX.


The meeting will be the first between Nebraska and UCLA since 1994, and the 11th overall meeting between the schools. Nebraska holds a 6-4 advantage in the series between the schools, including wins in six of the past seven meetings. Nebraska was victorious in its last trip to face UCLA at the Rose Bowl, winning 14-13 in 1993.


The addition of the prime-time national telecast on FOX gives Nebraska four scheduled prime-time telecasts for the 2012 season. Nebraska's home game against Wisconsin on Sept. 29 will be televised by ABC, while its Oct. 6 game at Ohio State and Oct. 27 home game with Michigan will be carried on either ABC, ESPN or ESPN2. Each of those three games will kick off at 7 p.m. CT.


Game times and television information have also been set for three other 2012 games. The Huskers' Sept. 1 season opener with Southern Miss will be televised on ABC at 2:30 p.m., while the Sept. 15 home contest with Arkansas State will be shown on ESPN, ESPN2 or ESPNU beginning at 11 a.m. NU's regular-season finale at Iowa on Friday, Nov. 23 will be shown nationally on ABC, beginning at 11 a.m.


Times and television information for Nebraska's remaining five games will be announced six to 12 days in advance.
