On Monday morning, Nebraska Athletics and the Husker Sports Network announced their launch of a Spanish broadcast for Saturday’s football game against Northwestern. 

According to a press release, the broadcast will be free to listen on Huskers.com and the Huskers app, and aired on 97.7 FM in Omaha, Lincoln and eastern Nebraska and 93.3 FM in Grand Island and central Nebraska. 

This will be the first non-English sports broadcast for the university, which will begin at 2:45 p.m. for a pregame show prior to kick off at 3 p.m. 

“The timing is especially fitting with the game falling in National Hispanic Heritage Month and as a part of the University’s Homecoming festivities,” Nebraska athletic director Bill Moos wrote. “This broadcast is an important step in making sure we engage a growing demographic of Nebraska’s population and welcome all fans to Husker Nation.”
