Nebraska, Oregon schedule future home-and-home series

The official announcement of a football game at a racetrack wasn’t the only big-time FBS scheduling news going on Monday morning.

In a press release, Nebraska announced that it has scheduled a future home-and-home series with Oregon.  The Cornhuskers will host the Ducks in Lincoln Sept. 17, 2016, then travel to Eugene Sept. 9, 2017.

The addition of Oregon on Nebraska’s future schedule came as a result of a request from Tennessee to make push back a future series.  The Cornhuskers and Vols had originally been scheduled for a home-and-home in 2016 and 2017 but, because of the Battle of Bristol announced Monday morning (we’ll have a post on that later), they asked that the NU-UT series be moved to 2026-2027.

“This is a win-win scenario,” athletic director Shawn Eichorst said in a statement. “The University of Tennessee asked for scheduling relief, and we were able to add the University of Oregon, a perennial top-25 program, to our non-conference schedule as we roll into the College Football Playoff era. This should be a great series, not only for our football programs, but for the tremendous fans of both schools.”

The two programs have met just six times previously, the last coming in 1986.  The Cornhuskers own a 5-1 edge all-time.

In one final NU scheduling note, the 2016 game with Wyoming originally scheduled for Sept. 17 has been moved up to Sept. 10 that same year.

    I’m not gonna get my hopes up until the year of said games. You hear about “future home and homes” all the time, but more often than not it never happens.

    Also, Alabama scheduled a home game against THE Devry Institute of Technology and Ohio State will play the University of Phoenix.

    That was pretty damn funny right there Duffer. Their schedules just opened up because Oregon cancelled due to a home and home with Nebraska!

    Sweet! Welcome to Lincoln ducks! Make sure to eat at Runza, buy some Dorthy Lynch dressing and be at Godmothers about 10 pm on Friday night to see the Husker band.

    Oh and we won’t put rubber duckies in every urinal like I heard Washington did.

    The Huskies are hands down the most classless school in the Pac-12. Their fans have serious anger issues when it comes to the Ducks.
