Thanks for the dates - but, wouldn’t we travel to Illini since we played them at home this year?


You can check out football schedules on We’re playing Illini at home according to the schedule.  Probably because of realignment due to the addition of the two new teams coming into the B1G .  We don’t play Penn State until 2017, and we play them at Beaver Stadium again.

Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, Northwestern, Purdue and Wisconsin in the West Division of the expanded B10 League starting 2014.  I believe for Nebraska at the moment, this is the easier of the two divisions in the B10 Conference.  NU’s chances are much better playing for the League championship with these teams than it would be otherwise.

It seems for NU, home field advantage isn’t as much of an advantage as it used to be.  Too bad, since NU needs all the help it can get nowadays.

If NU can put an extra 20 pounds of lean meat on Gregory by next fall, he will be a killer defensive end/lineman.  Let’s hope they feed him well for support over the next nine months.

Current line is Georgia Bulldogs | 8-4 according to Vegas.

The Illinois game is our Homecoming
