Southern Miss Contest Moved To Memorial Stadium

Nebraska and Southern Miss officials announced on Thursday that the 2013 football game between the schools will be played at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln.

The contest on September 7, 2013 was originally scheduled to be played in Hattiesburg on the same date.

The game will be the second in a three-game agreement with Southern Miss. The schools opened the 2012 season against each other with Nebraska winning 49-20. Southern Miss is also scheduled to visit Lincoln on September 26, 2015.

“There were discussions about moving this game to a neutral site, but as we continued to talk with Southern Miss, moving the game to Lincoln became an option,” said Nebraska Athletic Director Tom Osborne. “That opportunity appeared to be the most beneficial for both schools at this time.”

The change in the schedule will give Nebraska eight home games in the 2013 season, including the Huskers’ first five games of the year. Nebraska will open the 2013 season against Wyoming on August 31st and also have home non-conference games with UCLA (September 14th) and South Dakota State (September 21st).
