NU Football 2013-14 Big Ten Schedules

The Big Ten Conference has announced its football schedules for the 2013 and 2014 seasons, giving Nebraska fans a road map of conference schedules for the next four seasons. The Big Ten announced its 2011 and 2012 conference schedules last fall.


In 2013 and 2014, Nebraska will continue to play the other five Legends Divisions schools each season—Iowa, Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota and Northwestern, along with its permanent cross-division foe, Penn State. However, in 2013 and 2014, Illinois and Purdue rotate onto Nebraska's schedule in place of Ohio State and Wisconsin, who Nebraska faces in 2011 and 2012. Nebraska also will not face Indiana in the 2013 and 2014 seasons.


Nebraska open's 2013 Big Ten play with its first-ever conference meeting against Illinois on Oct. 5 in Lincoln, followed by a trip to Purdue on Oct. 12. Following an off-week, Nebraska resumes its schedule with its six permanent opponents, capped by a visit from Iowa on Thanksgiving weekend.


In 2014, the Huskers open Big Ten play at Northwestern, and will make their first Big Ten road trip to Illinois on Oct. 18. Purdue visits Memorial Stadium for the first time on Nov. 22, and the Huskers will close the year at Iowa.

The Big Ten Championship Games are set for Dec. 7, 2013 and Dec. 6, 2014. The sites for those games are yet to be determined.


In addition to the Big Ten schedules announced on Wednesday, Nebraska has three non-conference games scheduled for 2013 taking on Wyoming (Aug. 31) and UCLA (Sept. 14) in Lincoln, along with a trip to Southern Miss on Sept. 7. In 2014, Nebraska has scheduled non-conference games at Fresno State on Sept. 13 and at home against Miami on Sept. 20. The Huskers have one non-conference game to fill in 2013 and two for the 2014 schedule.


Nebraska will officially become a member of the Big Ten Conference on July 1, 2011. The Huskers will play their first conference game as a member of the Big Ten at Wisconsin on Oct. 1, with their Big Ten home opener set for Oct. 8 against Ohio State.  The first Big Ten Championship Game will be played on Dec. 3, 2011 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
