In a recent press release, Nebraska officially announced its 2015-16 non-conference schedule. The Huskers have faced several marquee teams in recent years including the Cincinnati Bearcats, Florida State Seminoles, and Creighton Blue Jays and have added even more for this season.
Admittedly, Nebraska only appears to have one matchup set against a true national power (Villanova) in non-conference play this season, but there are a handful of games against teams that are set to be nationally competitive next season and a few of these will be coming to Lincoln, which should certainly excite Husker fans.
Here is the full non-conference schedule.
