Once again the the Big Ten Conference Administrators Council has approved Nebraska and Iowa's request to play on the Friday after Thanksgiving. This year's contest will be in Lincoln.

“The Big Ten Conference Administrators Council approved the request for the Nebraska-Iowa Heroes Game to remain on the Friday after Thanksgiving in 2013 and 2014,” Nebraska Director of Athletics Shawn Eichorst said. “Playing on the day after Thanksgiving is a great Nebraska football tradition that we look forward to continuing.”

Since joining the Big Ten, Nebraska has won two straight over the Hawkeyes on "Black Friday," including last year's 13-7 contest.

Time and television information for the game will be announced at a later date. The previous two games were played at 11 AM and aired on ABC.

“We’re excited about playing our annual football game with Nebraska on the Friday after Thanksgiving for a number of reasons,” Iowa athletic director Gary Barta said in a released statement. “This provides the student-athletes who have already lost the opportunity to spend the holiday at home with their families two days away from football. In addition, the Friday television window provides great exposure for our program. We greatly appreciate the adjustments in schedules that our fans, and those who help us stage the game in Iowa City every other year, will have to make.”
