LINCOLN — Nebraska dropped a neutral site game at Soldier Field to fix an overbooked 2016 schedule and announced more plans Thursday for future nonconference matchups.
The Big Ten’s move to a nine-game league schedule beginning in 2016 forced the Huskers to remove one of the four nonconference contests they’d contractually agreed upon. With just four home games in league play, NU decided not to back out of hosting Fresno State, Wyoming or Tennessee.
