The most important channels for Nebraska football fans
Husker fans might be surprised to learn that, for the first time in 40 years, ESPN won’t air Big Ten Football in 2023. Instead, Nebraska football will air on CBS, NBC, FOX, Big Ten Network, FS1, and even Peacock.
FS1 and Big Ten Network, as properties owned by FOX and the Big Ten respectively, will feature less sought after Big Ten matchups while FOX’s Big Noon Kickoff airs the week’s premier Big Ten game. Important Big Ten matchups will also air on CBS and NBC, which has the rights to a prime-time game each week branded Big Ten Saturday Night. FOX retains the TV rights to broadcast the Big Ten Championship game.

Nebraska Football Storylines in 2023
The first thing you need to know is that Nebraska has a new head coach for 2023, Matt Rhule, and the expectations in Lincoln are extremely high. After taking over for Scott Frost, Rhule largely cleaned house on the NU coaching staff. However, Donovan Railoa stayed on as offensive line coach. Why? Because his nephew, Dylan Raiola, is the top-rated recruit in the 2024 recruiting class. Unfortunately for Rhule, Dylan Raiola signed with UGA football. College football fans tuning in to Nebraska games should have a laser focus on the offensive line. If they play poorly, it will create cinematic tension as the head of the position group was retained largely based on family influence and not on scheme.
Next, Nebraska, like Colorado football under Deon Sanders, has relied heavily on the transfer portal to rebuild a depleted team. In fact, Nebraska landed 3 transfers from Georgia’s national championship team. It will be interesting to watch whether players like OT Jacob Hood and LB MJ Sherman can bring a championship mentality to Lincoln.
