UNL Chancellor Ronnie Green told the state Board of Regents he does not think the Huskers will host another Friday night football game.

The Huskers will play a Friday night game this season, Sept. 29 at Illinois, as part of the Big Ten's deal with Fox Sports.

On Friday, Green said hosting a game at Memorial Stadium would likely force the school to cancel classes because the stadium is so close to campus.
