With so many games to make-up after a lengthy COVID-19 pause, the rest of Nebraska’s schedule is subject to change at any time to make room for make-up games. Those changes start this week as the Huskers moved one game up by a day and added another.
Nebraska’s home game against No. 21 Wisconsin originally scheduled for Thursday at 4 p.m. has been moved to Wednesday at 8:30 p.m. on Big Ten Network. Nebraska will also now host No. 14 Illinois on Friday at 8 p.m. on Big Ten Network, a make-up for a game postponed from Jan. 13.
Nebraska’s games at Minnesota on Monday (8 p.m. on Big Ten Network) and Penn State on Sunday (2 p.m. on Big Ten Network) remain unchanged, giving the Huskers (4-9, 0-6 Big Ten) five games in a nine-day period coming off a 20-day pause that included five postponed games.

To accommodate the schedule change for the men’s team, the women’s team (9-7, 7-6 Big Ten) will push back its home game against Iowa from Wednesday to Thursday. That game will tip off at 7 p.m. on BTN.
