Nebraska announced Tuesday the Cornhuskers will play host to Buffalo in five years.
The visit from the Bulls on Sept. 11, 2021, completes the Nebraska nonconference schedule.
The Cornhuskers will play Northern Illinois at Memorial Stadium on Sept. 4, and Nebraska will travel to old rival Oklahoma on Sept. 18.
Buffalo, which is no stranger to big-name non-conference opponents, is coached by Lance Leipold, who worked at Nebraska from 2001-03 as a member of the recruiting staff.
“This is a great opportunity for our program to compete against a revered program like Nebraska,” Buffalo director of athletics Allen Greene said in a news release. “The experience and exposure gained by playing this game will be invaluable.”
His football program also announced future dates with Rutgers and Delaware State in 2018.
“Playing Big Ten programs like Nebraska and Rutgers is an exciting opportunity for our players and helps us gain valuable exposure as we are always looking to expand our recruiting footprint,” Leipold said in the release.
