The Big Ten Conference announced the conference football schedules for the 2018 and 2019 seasons on Wednesday morning. The schedules were recently approved and will feature nine Big Ten Conference games.

In both years, Nebraska will face each of the other six members of the Big Ten’s West Division as part of its conference slate, including Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Northwestern, Purdue and Wisconsin. In addition, the Huskers will take on three members of the East Division each season.

The Huskers will open the 2018 conference season September 22nd with a game at Michigan, one of five Big Ten road games that season. NU will also travel to Wisconsin (October 6th), Northwestern (October 13th), Ohio State (November 3rd) and Iowa (November 23th). Nebraska will play host to Purdue (September 29th), Minnesota (October 20th), Illinois (November 10th) and Michigan State (November 17th) at Memorial Stadium during the 2018 season.

The 2019 Big Ten schedule will feature five home conference games for the Huskers, beginning with a September 28th visit from Ohio State. Nebraska will also welcome Northwestern (October 12th), Indiana (October 26th), Wisconsin (November 16th) and Iowa (November 29th) to Memorial Stadium. The Huskers’ 2019 conference road games include the league opener at Illinois (September 21st) as well at trips to Minnesota (October 12th), Purdue (November 2nd) and Maryland (November 23rd).
