Nebraska Anthem Protest

Anthem protest opportunities are limited in college football

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — If Nebraska's Michael Rose-Ivey and teammates want to kneel during the national anthem again, their next opportunity will be the Nov. 5 game at Ohio State.

Rose-Ivey, Mohamed Barry and DaiShon Neal each took a knee on the sideline as the anthem was sung at Northwestern last week. Their action sparked statewide debate about whether it was an appropriate setting for their protest of police violence and racial injustice, and Rose-Ivey will meet with the state's governor next week to discuss the issue.
