Nice to see these two playing each other again.
Yeah even if I might die of old age first. Wonder if they have any plans for 2055 yet when I turn 100?
Consider that OU used to play Texas as an OOC every year. That they restore an OOC series with Nebraska simply puts their schedule back where it used to be.
’bout time! Great move………now, need the Aggies and ‘Horns to get back to the table.
Aggies will never schedule a matchup against Texas. The SEC hardly ever wants to travel for an away game. But if they do, it will be the only power 5 non-conference game they play, totaling just 9 power 5 games.

Alabama never does true road games OOC. Most of the SEC does
Because of the neutral-site conference game with Arkansas, A&M can only play non-conference road games in odd-numbered years and still have seven home games. They’ve already scheduled games for 2017 (at UCLA), 2019 (at Clemson), 2021 (at Colorado) and 2025 (at Notre Dame).
Texas wants to a play a more national schedule, and if they play a home-and-home with A&M, they end up with nine or ten games in the state of Texas. They would rather play at USC, at Ohio State and at Michigan.
Conceptually, they could play a home-and-home in 2023 (at Texas) and 2015 (at A&M), but I think the administrations of both schools have simply moved on.
I agree Kevin, I caught onto it a long time ago, he just sounds stupid & pathetic! Does he not know that the Aggies are based out of Texas? So technically how is that the Aggies would be traveling anywhere, their already in the same state. Meanwhile Bama just won a national championship & he is the only bama fan who is bashing the SEC with his garbage about 9 game conference & OOC games. All the Bama fans I know are celebrating & enjoying the championship, Roll Tide, just give it up! You are no Bama fan, just someone that sounds lonely with all your other accounts as well, sad.
What, Is roll tide the new Maverick or something??? I don’t get it.
we will proba lt be dead by then
I’ve missed this matchup. It was tradition to watch these two teams go at it the week of Thanksgiving and many of those games were very exciting. It’s a shame that they can’t play each other annually or at least more frequently than they do now. That 1971 contest still goes down in my opinion as one of the most exciting games that I’ve ever watched.
Nebraska has also wrapped up a second future series with Oklahoma…
Good choice on moving these games due to the hurricane, would be hard to make up & now I don’t have to stay up til 12am watching Michigan play.
Yeah, now the game will be over at 12:30 instead of 8:30
“Nebraska is the first non-conference opponent scheduled for Central Michigan for the 2020 season.”
But your 2020 schedule shows an at Northwestern game as well.
Wow, CMU really loading up on the Power 5 games – great to see and I hope I can go to a few of these.
I’m confused as the text in this article as this site announced the NU-CMU game several weeks ago.
See the fbschedules article from Aug 12, 2015. Was there confusion interpreting the copy of the contract (obtained from CMU via an open records request),.if the game was to be between CMU vs NU or CMU vs UNL ?
Or are both the Nebraska and Northwestern games on for 2020?
Just trying to clarify.
(Univ of Nebraska does not go with the NU acronym any longer, see the new style guide for the university)
No confusion. CMU has a contract to play at Northwestern on Sept. 12 that season.
So no correction in the above article?
They play at Nebraska on 9/12 and at Northwestern on 9/19. The only thing omitted from the article was the mention of Northwestern at the very end, which I just added.
