Big Ten Announces New Football Schedule Format

The Big Ten has announced a new football schedule format for the 2024 and 2025 seasons. 

Nebraska and all other conference teams will meet each other at least once every two years.  The 2024 season will be the first year with 16 league teams, including new members UCLA and USC, and no divisional format.  In 2024, the Huskers will host Indiana, Michigan State, Minnesota and Wisconsin.  NU will visit Iowa, Northwestern, Penn State, Purdue and UCLA. 

The 2025 conference slate will feature home games against Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, Rutgers and UCLA.  Nebraska will travel to Maryland, Minnesota, Ohio State and USC in ‘25. 

The Huskers’ one guaranteed annual matchup will be against Iowa.  Game dates for the 2024 schedule will be announced later this year.
