2018-19 Husker opponents

Recommended Posts

First news about next years schedule:

Huskers to play in the CBE Classic in Kansas City. Field isn't as sexy as this years by joining NU will be USC, Texas Tech and Missouri St. Matchups haven't been determined just yet.

Those are games I'd consider making the trip down for. This year's games are played on Monday and Tuesday nights, however. That would make it tougher.

 

That's three games we know about so far when you include Creighton coming to town.

Since I live just a few blocks away from the Sprint Center, I will probably try and find a way to get there for the CBE event.

 

USC and Tech are the obvious headline acts here, NU and MSU will be expected to be the filler...but I'll take it!  I've been hoping we'd get an invite to this ever since it started.

If this thing really wants to make money, a couple of options are below.

 

Nebraska VS Kansas

 

Kansas State VS Mizzou

Rothstein sees NU as the bigger name than Tech. Considering where the games will be played and on the college sports landscape, NU's a bigger brand for this. Tech may be a bigger hoops draw but I think both are fairly invisible on the CBB scene unless one of them makes a run this year.

Wish I had started this thread... I've enjoyed doing updates to the early-season scheduling "Husker Opponents" for many years.

 

Sorry, dude. I didn't even think of that...take the reigns from here.

They'll make plenty of money. And I'd rather not go 0-2. Husker fans will travel to this and they'll want to watch us win at least one game.

Not sure many will if they play it on Monday and Tuesday like they are this year. It would help a lot if they have a big year this year.

Nebraska should have the clear advantage in terms of butts in the seats - over all of the other three teams - but the TV audience is going to tune in to see USC or Tech.  Barring a cinderella run this year by Nebraska, of course.  But SC is a legit national title contender this year and Tech should be right on the fringe of the top 25 most of the year this year.

USC, maybe, but nobody nationally cares about any of the other teams.

Now that this is a thing....

 

We almost have to get a Big 10/Big East home game right?  A good year could give us a formidable home game here.

 

We will also probably be on the road for the Big 10/ACC Challenge.  A good year could give us a formidable road game here.

Your first mistake was using logic.
