Nebraska athletic director Shawn Eichorst doesn’t want a longstanding football tradition to be thrown by the wayside.

When future B1G schedules were released for the 2020 and 2021 seasons, there were some noticeable changes that affected the Huskers. Instead of playing Iowa in the final week of the season, Nebraska would play Minnesota.

But what was even more shocking was that Nebraska didn’t have a game scheduled for Black Friday, a tradition for Huskers football dating back to 1990.

On Thursday, Eichorst released a statement saying that he would “do everything possible” to keep Black Friday games as part of Nebraska’s schedule beyond the 2019 season.

In the statement, Eichorst also said that the dates on the schedule aren’t solidified and the B1G often just assigns games to Saturday afternoon. There’s a possibility the Huskers could face Minnesota on Black Friday.

This has seemed to catch considerable backlash from Nebraska fans. We’ll see if Eichorst is able to remedy this Black Friday mistake before fans really get angry.
