Nebraska to Play Doane in Men’s Basketball

NCAA Basketball: Georgia Tech at Nebraska Steven Branscombe-USA TODAY Sports

Nebraska will fill an empty week by adding Doane University to the non conference schedule. They will take on the Tigers this Thursday, December 17th at 6:00 in Lincoln. The game will be carried on BTN+ for viewing and the IMG Husker Sports Network for Audio.

This matchup between the two in state schools will be in place of the cancelled Florida A&M game that was supposed to take place on December 6th but was cancelled due to COVID concerns in the A&M program.

It has been well over a century since these two teams last met during regular season play. The last time was during the 1899-90 season. The exact date is unknown but the Huskers prevailed that day 57-3.

Nebraska has since played Doane in preseason exhibitions twice. The last one being a 91-63 Husker win on October, 30th, 2019 and a 71-64 Husker win on October 11th, 2011.
