For Husker fans who sometimes miss their former Big 8/12 foes, they will have to wait another year for an old opponent on their schedule. The Nebraska Cornhuskers announced Friday afternoon that their three-year series with the Kansas State Wildcats scheduled to start this year is now delayed until 2021.

The Cornhuskers and Wildcats were originally squaring off against each other this season at the T-Mobile Center in Kansas City, Missouri on Dec. 19. That series will now begin in Lincoln on December 19, 2021. They will next play each other at the T-Mobile Center on Dec. 17, 2022, and a game in Manhattan will be played in either 2023 or 2024.

In the full statement on the announcement, Nebraska included the following notes on the old conference foes history together:

The series between the Huskers and Wildcats dates back to the 1905-06 season, as the schools were members of the Missouri Valley, Big Eight and Big 12 Conferences before the Huskers joined the Big Ten in 2011. The Wildcats lead the all-time series, 127-93, but the teams have not met since Feb. 23, 2011, a 61-57 Kansas State win in Lincoln. Nebraska’s last win in the series was a 73-51 win at the Devaney Center in 2009.
