Nebraska to play Oregon in 2016 and 2017

I'm not going to pretend to be pleased by this.

The Tennessee series (which I was really looking forward to) is moved back a decade to the late 2020s. Meanwhile, we're saddled with what for now appears to be two probable losses in 3 and 4 years (hopefully the Ducks are a diminished program by that point).

Nebraska and Tennessee officials announced on Monday that the dates of the future games between the schools have been changed to accommodate a requested schedule change from Tennessee.

The games originally scheduled between the Huskers and Tennessee in 2016 and 2017 have been pushed back a decade. Nebraska and the Vols will now meet in the 2026 and 2027 seasons.

The Huskers will play host to Tennessee on Sept. 12, 2026, and travel to Knoxville and Neyland Stadium on Sept. 11, 2027. The games will be the first-ever regular-season matchups between the schools. Nebraska won the only two previous matchups in the series, defeating Tennessee in the 1998 Orange Bowl and the 2000 Fiesta Bowl.

With the change in dates of the future matchups with Tennessee, Nebraska announced on Monday it has agreed to a home-and-home series in 2016 and 2017 with the University of Oregon. The date of a 2016 matchup with Wyoming has also been moved to accommodate the changes.
