Nebraska Men’s Basketball Announces Nonconference Schedule

November 19, 2020

One day after the Nebraska men’s basketball team announced its Big Ten conference schedule, we now have the final piece of the puzzle for the schedule. The team announced the non-conference schedule on Thursday.

Two games in the Golden Window Classic, along with matchups against Creighton and Georgia Tech, highlight Nebraska’s revised non-conference men’s basketball schedule.

The seven-game slate features a number of changes from the original schedule released back in June, including the move of the annual Nebraska-Creighton game to Omaha on Friday, Dec. 11.

The Huskers will now open the 2020-21 season on Wednesday, Nov. 25, by hosting McNeese State at Pinnacle Bank Arena. Tipoff is set for 11 a.m. CT and will be televised on BTN.

Nebraska Athletics also announced that men’s basketball season tickets would not be sold for the 2020-21 season. There will be no fans at 2020-21 men’s basketball non-conference games. If Big Ten Conference protocol and local Directed Health Measures (DHM) allow for a limited number of fans during the 2020-21 conference season, priority would be given to 2019-20 season-ticket holders and information would be communicated directly to them at a later date.
