Nebraska will play host to the Oregon Ducks in 2016.

The Huskers and Ducks will square off in Lincoln on Sept. 17, 2016. Nebraska will travel to Oregon's Autzen Stadium for the second game in the series on Sept. 9, 2017.

The matchups will be the first between the schools since Oregon traveled to Lincoln in 1985 and 1986, with Nebraska winning both of those contests. The two schools have met six times overall, with Nebraska holding a 5-1 advantage in the series.

Oregon has been one of the nation's top programs over the past decade. The Ducks have won at least 10 games each of the past five seasons, including 12 wins each season from 2010 to 2012. Oregon currently sits at 6-0 this season and is ranked No. 2 in both polls. The Ducks will be looking for a fifth straight BCS bowl appearance in 2013.
