Minnesota, as it happens, typically plays Week 1 home games on Thursday night. The Gophers have done just that each of the past seven seasons, open at home in 2020 and, according to a report from the Toledo Blade newspaper, is doing the same with Ohio State coming to town in 2021.
As of Tuesday afternoon, though, Huskers.com now also lists a Thursday start.
That date also means Nebraska opens three of the next four seasons with a Big Ten game. This coming fall starts Sept. 5 at home against Purdue and 2021 kicks off with a Week Zero game against Illinois in Dublin, Ireland.
The Minnesota State Fair does that.
One of my favorite games. TM looked like The Flash on that night. Makes me wonder what kind of ridiculous numbers TM could have put up in 4 years had he stayed healthy throughout.The last Thursday night game that the Huskers played, Taylor Martinez made K-State look silly.
Oh, how I actually loved living in Kansas that night and for many days after.
