Lincoln – ESPN, the University of Cincinnati and the University of Nebraska announced Thursday morning that the start time of Nebraska’s men’s basketball game at Cincinnati on Saturday, Dec. 28, has been moved up to 11 a.m. (central).
The game, which will be televised nationally on ESPN2, was originally scheduled for 3 p.m. (central), but was moved to an earlier start because of the Bearcats’ appearance in the Belk Bowl that afternoon. Cincinnati and North Carolina were scheduled to play in the Belk Bowl at 2:20 p.m. (central) that afternoon on ESPN.
The Dec. 28 matchup is the first of a home-and-home series with Cincinnati, as the Bearcats will visit Pinnacle Bank Arena next season.
