Huskers, Hawkeyes Request to Continue Football Series on ‘Black Friday’
Nebraska and Iowa want to continue playing their yearly football rivalry on Black Friday. The two schools will make a request to the Big Ten Conference, which will discuss the matter at their administrative meetings later this month. The first two meetings were played on the Friday before Thanksgiving, but the 2013 and 2014 games are presently scheduled for Saturdays. The request from both schools is to change those dates and commit to Friday as the set day for the game each year.
