Texas: No Dice to Thursday Night, ESPN

By at January 26, 2010 | 11:55 AM | Print

Per the Omaha World-Herald's Tom Shatel Tuesday morning, ESPN offered Nebraska and Texas Thursday night, Oct. 14, for a showcase spot. NU, hosting the game at Memorial Stadium, was on board.

UT was not, citing, apparently, concerns over missing class.

Nebraska is now looking at moving the Oct. 2 Kansas State game back to Sept. 30. That would mean NU only had four days to prepare for the Wildcats, but, considering the Sept. 25 opponent is South Dakota State, you figure the Huskers could manage.

Of course, if Nebraska does opt for the Sept. 30 KSU/ESPN game, it's unlikely NU would try to replace SDSU as the Sept. 25 opponent, as had been rumored.

Maybe Texas will change its mind. Given that a Thursday night in Lincoln for UT would be nothing short of utter chaos in the Memorial Stadium stands, we somehow doubt it.
