Northwestern is all set for Homecoming 2020!

Though some schools set the Homecoming schedule closer to the season, Northwestern Football tweeted out some early details. On Wednesday, the official account of the Wildcats tweeted out that Homecoming will be on Oct. 3.

To make matters more interesting, Northwestern has scheduled Homecoming around a visit from a B1G West opponent in Nebraska. The series between the Cornhuskers and Wildcats has been a good one with games particularly tight since 2011. Northwestern is 4-5 against Nebraska since that time with the last three games decided by a total of 13 points.

Some schools may do a cupcake opponent around Homecoming, but that is definitely not the case here. This matchup should be another nail-biter down to the wire in 2020.
