Nebraska's full B1G schedule for 2024 season revealed
Nebraska’s full schedule for 2024 — including the 9-game B1G slate — has been revealed with the conference announcing the full league schedule Thursday.
For the Cornhuskers, it will be the first season playing alongside Oregon, Washington, USC and UCLA in the new 18-team B1G. Nebraska will face two of those new conference foes in 2024 with one trip planned to California.
Along with the B1G slate, Nebraska will face UTEP, Colorado and Northern Iowa in the nonconference portion of the schedule. The second half of the 2024 schedule is particularly brutal for Nebraska as the Huskers will face Ohio State, UCLA, USC, Wisconsin and Iowa from the end of October onward.
