The Nebraska Cornhuskers have announced that they will add a huge, upcoming series with one of the powerhouses of the Pac-12 fairly soon, while at the same time also making a note that an originally scheduled series with an SEC opponent will be moved back about a decade.
For the addition, the Huskers have added the Oregon Ducks to their schedule. The series will kick off in 2016 when Oregon will make a trip to Lincoln to face Nebraska inside Memorial Stadium, which will be followed up by a trip to Autzen in 2017.
While we’re not certain where this inconsistent Nebraska program is headed, it’s safe to say that Oregon should still be a force by the time this rolls around, which is a huge opportunity for Nebraska.
But, at the same time, the school has also announced that they will be moving a series scheduled for this time period back 10 years.
The Huskers had a home-and-home scheduled with the Tennessee Volunteers for 2016/2017, but they’ll now be moving that back to 2026 and 2027.
It’s hard to imagine the series with Oregon changing much, but you shouldn’t exactly consider that Tennessee series set in stone, as there’s now a lot of time to tweak that some more, if needed.
