The Huskers and Buffaloes get the party back together for 4 times in the next 12 years.

It's missing Red. That's alright, we'll paint it again soon.

Oh look, the gang is getting back together for all the hate!

That's right folks, time to renew a Big 12 "rivalry".

In all seriousness, it's glad to see an ole foe from the Big 8/12 in Memorial Stadium again. Located in this press release from the Nebraska AD on Thursday, Nebraska and Colorado will play four football games against each other in the next 12 years.

In 2018 and 2024, the Huskers will host the Buffaloes in Lincoln. While in 2019 and 2023, Folsom Field will be the venue for the game. No word yet if the Buffs will be able to win 6 games in the now Pac 12 conference by then, but by golly we can all hope so, huh?

While nice to see the Buffaloes in the schedule, one would like to hope that Nebraska schedules another traditional Big 8 opponent to accompany the Oklahoma series in 2021 and '22.
