ESPN will nationally televise the Gophers-Nebraska football game this Saturday, the University of Nebraska said in a release Sunday.

The teams will play at 11 a.m. Saturday at TCF Bank Stadium.

Minnesota (5-2, 1-2 Big Ten) is coming off its first Big Ten win, a 20-17 victory over Northwestern in Evanston, Ill.  Nebraska (5-1, 2-0 Big Ten) had a bye this weekend.

The ESPN/ABC family of networks has televised Minnesota's past four games.
