Nebraska Announces Game for October 27th
Bill Moos and the Husker Athletic Department announced a new foe for the Huskers this season in Bethune-Cookman. The game is slated to replace the Huskers September 1st matchup against Arkon that was canceled due to inclement weather in Lincoln.
“Our great fans and our football student-athletes deserve a full schedule, and we are glad to be able to provide an additional game on Oct. 27 against Bethune-Cookman,” Nebraska Athletic Director Bill Moos said. “We
appreciate the patience of our fans through this process. While there may be some conflicts on what was originally a bye week, we know Memorial Stadium will be packed to watch the Huskers on a fall Saturday.”
An FCS fore, Bethune-Cookman began speaking with the Huskers about scheduling the game as early as the week after the Akron matchup was canceled, per the LJS. Nebraska will work with Akron to find a financial settlement for the missed game and will guarantee Bethune-Cookman $800k for the game in Lincoln. The game will be part of the Big Ten’s regular television package and the kickoff time for the game is yet to be announced but should be available 6-12 days before the contest.
“I would like to thank Bethune-Cookman for their great cooperation as we put this agreement together. Athletic Director Lynn Thompson and Head Coach Terry Sims are excited to bring their team to Lincoln, and we look forward to their visit.” said Bill Moos.
