Nebraska-Northwestern Live Stream (10/2): How to Watch Online, TV, Time
Nebraska reached the midpoint of its regular season Saturday, Oct. 2 against Northwestern. The game will be broadcast live on fuboTV.
Regrets? To say the Cornhuskers have a few would be an understatement.
Nebraska’s loss to Illinois in Game 1 looks worse all the time, but the Huskers (2-3, 0-2 Big Ten) pushed an Oklahoma top-five team to the side of the road he two weeks ago. Then last week, just minutes from the end of a 10-year drought against ranked teams on the road, a special teams blunder and interception turned into an overtime loss at Michigan State.
A night game at home against Northwestern (2-2, 0-1) would seem winnable. The Wildcats have lost most of their major contributors to the 2020 West Division champion team, and the Huskers are the 10.5 point favorites, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
But Northwestern Nebraska games have been hard-fought since the Huskers joined the Big Ten in 2011. The teams have split into 10 games. Eight were decided by one score, including six by three points or less.

HUSKER’S O-LINE DISEASES: Frost said earlier this week that every position is up for grabs on the offensive line. Adrian Martinez has been sacked 20 times, according to Pro Football Focus’s tally, and 18 times, according to the NCAA.
Tackles Turner Corcoran and Bryce Benhart allowed a total of 50 presses to the quarterback in five games, according to PFF.
âI know guys who have the ability to play better than what we’ve played in a few positions, so the competition is open and we’re going to give people a real chance,â said Frost. âIf we had had a good game there, I think we would be in a completely different situation this year. Special teams too.
ABOUT THESE SPECIAL TEAMS: The Huskers are last in the Big Ten and 124th nationally for special team effectiveness, according to ESPN.
âIt seems like every week a new problem arises,â Frost said. “You fix one and work on it and spend a lot of time on it and something that you didn’t even plan on happens.”
LOVE LINCOLN: Northwestern is 3-2 at Lincoln, with losses in 2013 over Ron Kellogg-to-Jordan Westerkamp Hail Mary and in 2019 on a time-out field goal. Their three victories, including one decided in overtime, totaled 12 points.
EYE ON ADRIAN: The Wildcats have a new defensive coordinator in Jim O’Neil, and his job is to find ways to keep Martinez in check. Martinez is by far the best rusher in the Huskers, performing 67% of his passes and has a knack for doing something out of thin air when games fail.
“As Coach O’Neil always talks about, effort erases mistakes so we have to make sure we take the right angles, reach for the ball and make sure our tackles are on point,” said linebacker Bryce Gallagher.
ON THE RUN: Northwestern ran for 373 yards in a 35-6 win over Ohio last week, with Evan Hull for a season record 216.
It won’t be that easy against Nebraska, who held Michigan State’s national race leader Kenneth Walker III to 61 yards on 19 carries. The Huskers limited the Spartans to 14 total yards and no first downs in the second and third quarters.
âThey warned everyone in the Big Ten last weekend on the road with the way they played in the second half,â said Fitzgerald. “I mean, it was as dominant a performance as I’ve seen it.”
