Cincinnati, Nebraska agree to future home-and-home


In some scheduling news that doesn’t involve whether the SEC will play eight or nine conference games, Nebraska and Cincinnati have agreed to a future home-and-home series.

The first game is scheduled to take place in Lincoln on Sept. 12, 2020 with a trip to Cincinnati on Sept. 13, 2025 — if there’s even football by that point.

The release from Nebraska notes that two sides have a rich history in gridiron competition. In 1906. Nebraska beat Cincinnati 41-0.

Additionally, Nebraska has modified its series with Northern Illinois. The 2016 game, which was to be held in Soldier Field in Chicago, has been canceled. The Huskers cited the Big Ten’s nine-game conference schedule as the reason for the cancellation. Instead, NIU will now travel to Lincoln four times between 2017 and 2013. Specifically, the Huskers will host the Huskies in 2017, ’19, ’21, and ’23.
