Lee Barfknecht Omaha World-Herald

Somebody in the Big Ten basketball scheduling office still has no love for Nebraska.

For the third straight season, the Huskers will open league play with a nasty run of games: at Iowa, at Ohio State, Michigan, at Purdue, Ohio State.

The home opener with Michigan on Jan. 9 is set for ESPN or ESPN2. Other than that, four games are set for ESPNU.
