The Huskers have signed a contract to play four games against the University of Colorado between 2018 and 2024.
The border rivals will first meet in Lincoln on September 8, 2018, before a return matchup in Colorado on Sept. 7, 2019. Colorado will also play host to the Huskers on Sept. 9, 2023, with the Buffs returning to Memorial Stadium for a matchup on Sept. 7, 2024.
The games with Colorado will be the first in the series since both schools left the Big 12 Conference. The teams last met in the regular-season finale in 2010, and that meeting marked the 63rd consecutive year the two schools had met on the gridiron.
“There is a lot of great history between Nebraska and Colorado on the football field, so I think this will be an outstanding series for both schools,” Nebraska Head Coach Bo Pelini said. “I think our fans will enjoy the matchups, particularly those in Western Nebraska who can make the short drive out to the games in Colorado.”
Overall, Nebraska holds a 49-18-2 advantage in the all-time series between the schools, including a 26-8 record against the Buffs in Lincoln.
