Pack your bags, Nebraska and Illinois fans, the 2021 matchup between the two teams won’t be played at either school’s historic Memorial Stadium.

On Monday morning, both Illinois and Nebraska confirmed that the 2021 game between the Illini and Huskers will be played overseas in Dublin, Ireland. The B1G matchup will be held in Week 0 to begin the college football season.

The game is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 28, 2021.

The game will be played at Dublin’s Aviva Stadium.

It’s an interesting way to kickoff the 2021 season, not only with it being played overseas, but with it being a B1G West game to open the year. It will have immediate implications on the division race for both squads.

The 2021 matchup between the two schools will be the 19th meeting all-time. Currently, Nebraska own a 13-3-1 edge over Illinois. The Huskers also defeated the Illini earlier this season 42-38 in Champaign. Illinois’ last win came in 2015.
