The Nebraska Cornhuskers were scheduled to play in West Lafayette, Indiana tomorrow at 6 p.m. CST against the Purdue Boilermakers, but that game has officially been postponed.
There is no word yet on the specific delay or what date the game will be made up on. At time of publishing, it was not clear whether the team had made the trip to the airport yet for the flight to West Lafayette. A quick check of flight records does show a Denver Air Connection flight scheduled to depart at 5 p.m. CST that had been cancelled without departing the gate, however.
As of now the next game on the schedule for Nebraska is this Sunday, Jan. 10 at 5 p.m. CST in Lincoln against the Indiana Hoosiers. We will be sure to update you with any further news on delays on the schedule as we become aware.
The full press release from Nebraska Athletics is below:
Lincoln – The men’s basketball game between Nebraska and Purdue scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 5, in West Lafayette, Ind., is being postponed. The universities mutually agreed to the postponement out of an abundance of caution surrounding the health and safety of the student-athletes, coaches and staff. The two schools will work with the Big Ten Conference to reschedule the game.
