Notable Game(s)

No. 25 Nebraska at Colorado 3:30 p.m. FOX

Once conference foes in the Big 12, the two teams are slated to continue a rivalry that dates back to 1898. Some claim it isn’t a true rivalry with Nebraska holding a 49-19-2 advantage, but there is bad blood between the two schools and it should be a great game to watch. There is a run of past games airing on ESPN Classic throughout the morning and afternoon leading up to game time.

Player To Watch

WR Laviska Shenault No. 2, Colorado
