Akron vs. Huskers canceled
After Akron’s opening kickoff went through the end zone, lightning caused a halt to the game and conditions only got worse. After more than two and a half hours, the game was called off. Then came a report from Fox TV that the game would be replayed Sunday morning. That turned out to be premature. The Huskers’ season opener will be Sept. 8 against Colorado.
Adjustments to the 2018 schedule, if any, will be announced at a later date, according to the university. Ticket holders are encouraged to hold on to their tickets from Saturday’s game.
Even with no game Saturday night, the atmosphere was energized by the anticipation of Scott Frost’s debut as head coach. There was a revamped Tunnel Walk, and former Husker great Ndamukong Suh was on hand.
