Huskers Announce BTN and BTN.com Soccer Coverage
Lincoln - The Big Ten Conference announced on Tuesday that the Nebraska soccer team will make one appearance on the Big Ten Network this season and will have seven of its 10 home games streamed live on the Big Ten Digital Network (BTN.com). Other road Big Ten Conference games carried by BTN.com are likely to be added as each conference school sets its Student U/BTN.com schedules. Nebraska's own HuskersNSide may also stream the three remaining home contests, but that will be announced at a later time.
BTN's soccer coverage also includes the BTN Soccer Report, a weekly web-only show hosted by Kevin Egan. Fans can also follow the entire season on Twitter @BTNSoccerReport, or by using hashtag #BTNSoccer.
Husker fans across the country will be able to watch the Huskers open Big Ten Conference play at Northwestern on the Big Ten Network or BTN2Go.com. The game is scheduled for a 5 p.m. (CT) start in Evanston, Ill., on Friday, Sept. 14 and will be shown on BTN at 7 p.m. (CT) the same day. Nebraska hosted Northwestern last season in the first Big Ten Conference contest across all sports at NU and beat the Wildcats, 3-1, on BTN.
This season's game between the Huskers and Wildcats is one of 10 games scheduled to be shown on BTN during the 2012 regular season. Both semifinal games and the championship game of the Big Ten Conference Tournament are also shown live on BTN.
The Huskers will make their first appearance on BTN.com this season on Sunday, Aug. 26, when NU concludes the Husker Classic with a 1 p.m. game against New Mexico. NU opens the Husker Classic on Friday, Aug. 24, against Virginia Tech. Nebraska's final non-conference game of the 2012 season on Sunday, Sept. 16, with Northern Colorado will also be shown on BTN.com.
