The University of Akron football game against Nebraska in Lincoln, Neb., on Saturday night was canceled by inclement weather and no makeup date has been announced.

The two teams do not have the same bye week so a makeup game will be difficult to schedule but Nebraska encouraged fans to hang on to their tickets.

The game was delayed for two hours and 40 minutes by thunderstorms after the opening kickoff before being canceled at 10:55 p.m.

The Zips will open their season at InfoCision Stadium against Morgan State at 3:30 p.m. on Sept. 8
