The Nebraska Cornhuskers will be part of a quadruple header in Atlanta, facing off against the Auburn Tigers on Saturday, Dec. 11. The game’s tipoff time has not yet been announced, but Auburn-Nebraska is slated to be the opening game of the day.
The game will mark the first time the two teams have ever faced off against each other. The Auburn Tigers went 13-14 last season, and 7-11 in conference action. However, the season was a big drop off as compared to the previous two. Heading into the 2021-2022 season, Auburn is looking to have a bounce-back season as they are ranked No. 10 in CBS Sports’ Rothstein Top-45.
In the 2019-2020 season, Auburn was a lock for the NCAA Tournament prior to its cancellation after going 25-6 overall, and 12-6 in conference play while tying with LSU for second in the league. The 2018-2019 season was even more of a successful run as Auburn advanced all the way to the Final Four before being cheated out of the championship game by a god awful missed call against Virginia in the waning seconds that lets the Cavs march on and win the national title that year.
