NCAA Basketball: Big Ten Conference Tournament-Penn State vs Nebraska Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

The Big Ten announced the basketball conference schedule today and here is a rundown of who and when the Nebraska Cornhuskers will be playing this season.

The first thing that sticks out is that the Huskers will be getting two of their harder games to start the slate. They will travel to Michigan State, then host Minnesota in that week before the Creighton & Kansas games.

The second thing you’ll notice is that Nebraska, after being shut out of Saturday home games in the conference slate last year, gets two of them this season. They’ll host Iowa on January 27th, and Rutgers on February 10th, both Saturday games. The Huskers will be on the road on some Friday’s & Mondays, you’ll also notice. The Big Ten decided that those days were not off limits anymore in scheduling.

The Huskers will finish the season hosting four of their final five B1G games in the friendly confines of Pinnacle Bank Arena.
