Big Ten Releases 2021-22 Men’s Basketball Schedule

September 08, 2021

After learning the who back in May, Nebraska learned the when on Wednesday as the Big Ten released its conference schedule for the 2021-22 season.

Nebraska will open Big Ten play on the road at Indiana, led by new coach Mike Woodson, on Saturday, Dec. 4. That game will feature a match-up of former Pittsburgh backcourt partners, Nebraska’s Trey McGowens and Indiana’s Xavier Johnson, who transferred to Bloomington this offseason.

The Huskers’ other early conference game is at home against reigning Big Ten regular season champion Michigan on Nov. 7 before Nebraska dives back into nonconference play with games against Auburn in Atlanta, Kansas State and Kennesaw State to close out December.

Nebraska will dive into the meat of the conference slate on Jan. 2 with a home game against Ohio State led by All-Big Ten big man E.J. Liddell. Nebraska will host the 2021 Big Ten Tournament champion Illinois and star center Kofi Cockburn on Jan. 11. Nebraska’s only meeting with Purdue, a projected Big Ten title contender led by another talented big man in Trevion Williams, is set for Jan. 14 in West Lafayette. Nebraska will face Iowa twice in a two week span — Feb. 13 in Iowa City and Feb. 25 in Lincoln.

The Huskers will close out the conference slate on the road at Wisconsin on March 6. Four of their final six games will be away from home. The Big Ten Tournament is scheduled for March 9-13 at Bankers Life FIeldhouse in Indianapolis.
