This will be the 8th time these teams have met for non-conference play, with the series currently tied at 3-3-1. Nebraska owns the overall scoring edge at 146-109, and also the last victory, a 55-7 triumph in front of a sold-out home stadium crowd in 1998.

South Dakota State

South Dakota State at Nebraska

South Dakota State 0

This will be only the second time South Dakota State has faced Nebraska. The previous meeting, also in Lincoln, was played long ago on September 21, 1963, just two months before President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. In that contest, Bob Devaney's Cornhuskers sent South Dakota State home with a 58-7 loss.

Kansas State

The series history between these programs stands at 77-15-2 in Nebraska's favor. This will be the 95th meeting for these teams. The 2009 contest, a Nebraska victory, decided the league's northern division title.


Texas at Nebraska
1 2 3 4 Total
Texas 0
Nebraska 0
  • Date: October 16
  • Location: Memorial Stadium, Lincoln, NE

These teams come head-to-head for the 14th time in what has frequently been a contentious - if still respectful - clash of conference foes whose games often carry title implications, and often at the expense of the Cornhuskers. 2009 was no exception, as Texas defeated Nebraska in the league championship game with one controversial second remaining. Texas owns the series to date, leading Nebraska 9-4.

Oklahoma State

Nebraska at Oklahoma State
1 2 3 4 Total
Nebraska 0
Oklahoma State 0

The Cornhuskers will travel to Stillwater to face the Oklahoma State Cowboys for the 44th time, owning a very comfortable series lead of 36-5-1.


Missouri at Nebraska
1 2 3 4 Total
Missouri 0
Nebraska 0
  • Date: October 30
  • Location: Memorial Stadium, Lincoln, NE

Missouri will arrive in Lincoln to take on Nebraska for the 104th contest between the schools since 1892, trying to make progress to catch up to Nebraska in the series, as the Tigers trail behind the Cornhuskers 36-64-3 all-time.

Iowa State

Nebraska at Iowa State
1 2 3 4 Total
Nebraska 0
Iowa State 0

Second-year Iowa State Head Coach Paul Rhoads will host Nebraska in Ames for the first time, as the squads come together for their 105th contest. Iowa State has much ground to make up if they wish to take back the series lead, which stands in Nebraska's favor at 17-85-2, and the Cornhuskers will be looking to pay back the painful 7-9 home field upset loss handed them by ISU in 2009.


Kansas at Nebraska
1 2 3 4 Total
Kansas 0
Nebraska 0
  • Date: November 13
  • Location: Memorial Stadium, Lincoln, NE

Kansas travels to Lincoln to continue one of the longest-running series in all of college football, as this game marks the 117th time the teams have come together to settle things on the field. Nebraska still owns the series lead 90-23-3, and the Jayhawks will be playing under a new head coach.

Texas A&M

Nebraska at Texas A&M
1 2 3 4 Total

Texas A&M 0

Nebraska faces the Aggies for the 15th time, as the Cornhuskers arrive in College Station to defend their series lead, standing at 10-3.


Colorado at Nebraska
1 2 3 4 Total
Colorado 0
Nebraska 0
  • Date: November 26
  • Location: Memorial Stadium, Lincoln, NE

Colorado travels into Lincoln as both teams close their regular seasons. This series has produced many amazing and emotional finishes, and there is no reason to expect that this 69th clash will be any different. Like many teams, though, Colorado has a long ways to go to even up the series, which stands at 48-18-2 in Nebraska's favor.
