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.

See you next year @KStateMBB.
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.
