Iowa vs. Nebraska, 11.26

The Huskers take the field before their game against Iowa on Friday at Memorial Stadium.

Steven M. Sipple, Parker Gabriel and Chris Basnett talk through the ever-evolving coaching searches that Nebraska football and head coach Scott Frost are currently conducting in this episode.

The Big Ten Network enjoyed a pair of record-setting broadcasts last week, and both involved Nebraska.

The Black Friday football game between the Huskers and Iowa drew 1.94 million viewers, making it the most-watched football game in BTN history. The previous mark was held by a 2016 contest between Michigan and Colorado, which had 1.86 million people tuning in.

Later on Friday, Nebraska's volleyball match at Wisconsin delivered 375,000 viewers, making it the most-watched volleyball match in network history. The previous mark was held by Wisconsin and Penn State, which drew 266,000 in 2019.

The NU-Wisconsin match drew a big number with a 4:30 p.m. start. Wisconsin won in four sets in a match that had conference title implications.

The NU-Iowa football game was one of the top national draws in a time window that included Kansas State-Texas, and later Cincinnati-East Carolina. Iowa scored 22 straight points to rally for a 28-21 victory.
