UW, Nebraska set for 12:30 p.m. start in mid-September

As if this anticipated 'X' mark on the calendar was going to even smart of snapping Washington's current streak of televised games.

The Big Ten Conference wasted no time in announcing a kickoff for one of its marquee non-conference tilts - the UW against Nebraska, set for Sept. 17 at 12:30 p.m. PDT (ABC-TV/ESPN).

Set in Memorial Stadium in Lincoln, Neb., this will be the third matchup between the two teams in one year - but likely the first with both teams ranked in the top 25.

The UW has a 50-game streak of games being televised live.

This one is the third already with a set kickoff time, joining Stanford (Oct. 22 at 5:30 p.m.) and Southern California (Nov. 12 at 12:30 p.m.).
