IOWA CITY, Iowa – – When the Iowa Hawkeyes travel to Nebraska for the final regular season football game of the 2011 season, the contest will be televised by ABC-TV to a national audience, with a start time of 11 a.m. CT. The announcement was made Wednesday by the Big Ten Conference. The contest at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln will be played on Friday, Nov. 25, the day after Thanksgiving.

Iowa’s Oct. 22 homecoming matchup against Indiana will also begin at 11 a.m. (CT) inside Kinnick Stadium. Television information for the Indiana game has not yet been determined. The announcement for Iowa’s homecoming contest was made as part of the Big Ten’s release of start times for homecoming games for all Big Ten schools. Iowa is not the homecoming opponent in any of its four conference road games.

Iowa holds an all-time record of 53-41-5 in homecoming games, including an 8-5-1 mark against the Hoosiers.

It was announced earlier that Iowa’s Oct. 15 home game against Northwestern will be a prime time event, beginning at 6 p.m. CT. That game will be televised by the Big Ten Network and marks Iowa’s only evening game of the season.

Start times and television information for Iowa’s remaining nine games has not yet been released. The Big Ten Conference is expected to announce start times for the first three weeks of the season in the near future.

The Hawkeyes open the season Sept. 3, hosting Tennessee Tech.
