Nebraska, Colorado agree to play 4 football games

Nebraska has signed a contract to play four football games

against former Big Eight and Big 12 rival Colorado beginning in

five years.

Nebraska said Thursday that the teams will meet in Lincoln on

Sept. 8, 2018, before a return matchup in Boulder on Sept. 7, 2019.

Colorado will host the Cornhuskers on Sept. 9, 2023, and return to

Lincoln on Sept. 7, 2024.

The games will be the first in the series since both schools

left the Big 12 two years ago, Nebraska going to the Big Ten and

Colorado to the Pac-12. The football teams last played in 2010

after meeting for 63 consecutive years.

Nebraska holds a 49-18-2 advantage in the series, including a

15-4 record since 1992.
